Motorcycles have a unique presence on the road; they allow riders more control over the vehicle and provide a greater enjoyment of the outdoors while riding. Unfortunately, their small size and open structure are inherent disadvantages.
Because of the size difference, many vehicles fail to properly acknowledge the motorcycle and violate the rider’s right-of way. During a motorcycle accident, the lack of protective covering around the bike increases the chance that the rider will feel the brunt of the impact. Other motor vehicles have a metal barrier protecting the driver from the road, but motorcyclists are not that fortunate. With these two disadvantages, motorcyclists have a very high fatality and injury rate compared to that of other drivers.
Motorcycle accidents can have devastating effects on the lives of the riders involved. The following are some of the most common injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents:
- Head Injuries/Concussions
- Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Asphalt Burns
- Back Injuries
With the potential for life-altering effects, these injuries clearly warrant fighting for compensation from the driver whose negligence caused the accident. The attorneys at The Waggoner Legal Group are experienced motorcycle accident lawyers and will be fight for the compensation you deserve.
