Types of Injuries Motorcycle Drivers and Passengers Sustain in Accidents
Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are at a much higher risk of serious injury and death than other types of vehicle operators. That’s because they are directly exposed to the hazards of the road and do not have the same protections offered by cars and trucks. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to head injuries and neck injuries, which can cause lifelong brain damage, disabilities and possible paralysis. Broken bones, “road rash” and burns are also common.
