While we hope that no motorcyclist ever has to experience a crash, we know that riders are aware of the risks. When a vehicle impacts a person on a motorcycle, their bodies absorb the impact. There are no airbags and no metal frames. Even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, they often sustain serious and life-threatening injuries. Keep in mind, there are two impacts – one with a vehicle and one with the ground.
It is not uncommon for us to see motorcycle crash victims with the following injuries:
These injuries can leave a person temporarily or permanently disabled. Aside from the massive medical bills, there are other hidden costs of crashes that people do not always consider. This can include:
