Motorcyclists face more risks on the roadway

It is not a surprise to anyone that motorcyclists are more vulnerable than drivers and passengers on the roadway. The average passenger vehicle weighs approximately 4,000 pounds. When a traditional vehicle collides with a motorcycle, there is a high probability that the motorcyclist will be injured. Motorcycle helmets do help curb fatalities, but even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, they have a 54.4% chance of sustaining an injury. It is not uncommon for our Youngstown motorcycle accident lawyers to help clients who have sustained the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries (possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Road rash injuries and torn skin

A motorcyclist injured in a crash will likely incur major medical expenses. If they cannot work while they recover from their injuries, they risk losing the income necessary to support themselves and their families.

How often do these incidents occur?

We know that there were 157 motorcyclist fatalities and 3,162 motorcyclist injuries during the latest reporting year in Ohio. Many people make an assumption that motorcyclists are to blame for most accidents, but that is not the case. We know that many motorcycle accidents occur due to the negligence of passenger vehicle drivers. It is not uncommon to discover that a motorcycle crash was caused by:

  • An impaired driver
  • A driver distracted by their phone or other devices
  • Drivers following a motorcyclist too closely
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Vehicles changing lanes improperly and into a motorcyclist
