Motorcycle Safety Gear Does Not Always Prevent Serious Injuries

Many motorcyclists are fully aware of the potential risks of injury in a collision. For this reason, they take every safety precaution possible to prevent severe injuries. Motorcyclists wear helmets, thick leather jackets and pants, gloves, heavy boots, face guards, and more to protect themselves.

Despite wearing top safety gear, some motorcyclists still find themselves severely injured after a crash. This is because wearing such gear only provides a thin layer of protection. In reality, a motorcyclist is always vulnerable to an impact from a car or truck. Leather clothes and hard helmets do not protect nearly as well as steel frames, airbags, seat belts, and other protections offered by a vehicle.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Crashes

Injuries in a motorcycle accident can vary widely from case to case. However, the following are some of the common serious injuries that may occur:

  • Spinal cord injury: This can lead to temporary or even permanent paralysis, as well as loss of organ function.
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): A TBI can cause cognitive, behavioral, and physical impairments that can last for months, years, or life.
  • Amputations: Some motorcyclists experience crushed limbs that cannot be repaired or even severed body parts.
  • Facial injuries: Many motorcyclists suffer damage to their face and head, including to their teeth, jawbones, cheekbones, noses, and skulls.

The above are some of many serious injuries that may result from a motorcycle crash. Motorcyclists—no matter how safe they try to be—may fall victim to negligent drivers. As a result, they can face overwhelming medical debt, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. It is important for every injured motorcyclist to discuss her or his legal rights with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
