A motorcycle crash can be devastating
When you are out riding a motorcycle, we know you do everything you can to stay safe. This may include wearing a helmet and proper clothing. You may have even taken a motorcycle safety course. However, we know that you cannot predict the actions and behaviors of other drivers, and motorcycle crashes can result in severe injuries.
A motorcyclist has little protection from the force of a vehicle slamming into them. That is why we commonly see the following injuries in the aftermath of a motorcycle crash:
- Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
- Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
- Road rash
For some of these injuries, a victim will need extensive medical care and possibly long periods of rehabilitation.
What if you cannot work while you recover from your injuries?
Will insurance cover the costs of medical expenses as well as things like lost income?
What we know happens in Pennsylvania?
During the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were over 128,000 total vehicle crashes. There were also 3,194 motorcycle crashes. Now, look at these next two numbers closely. There were:
- 3,052 motorcyclist injuries
- 180 motorcyclist fatalities
You read that correctly – nearly every motorcycle crash resulted in an injury or fatality.
Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than regular vehicle passengers to negligence driving behavior. They have to contend with drivers who simply do not give them the space they deserve on the roadway. They must also be extra wary of drivers who are distracted by their phones or other devices as well as those who are impaired by drugs or alcohol.
- A motorcyclist and their loved ones should not be on the line for expenses if a negligent driver causes them harm.
