As much as motorcyclists may not want to admit it, the injuries suffered by a rider or passenger of a motorcycle involved in a crash are often far more severe than those suffered by a driver or passenger in a car. Without several tons of steel, seat belts, and other safety devices to protect them, motorcyclists are at risk of a number of catastrophic injuries, including:
- traumatic brain injury
- spinal injury
- broken bones
- internal organ damage
And more — this list is far from exhaustive. In order to recover financial compensation for the damage caused by these injuries, a motorcycle accident victims needs to file a claim against a negligent party such as the other driver or the government agency responsible for the road or highway.
