Causes And Consequences Of Motorcycle Accident

Most motorcycle accidents are caused by a collision or near-collision with another vehicle. Drivers may not see the cyclist until it is too late to avoid a collision, or they may not see him or her at all. Some of the most frequent causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Driver cuts the motorcycle off
  • Vehicle hits the motorcycle
  • Cyclist encounters road hazards or defects

Cyclists typically suffer very serious injuries such as broken bones, amputations, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. Even with a helmet, head and brain injuries are the most common cause of death in motorcycle accidents.

Any of these injuries can result in temporary or permanent disability. The injured cyclist will likely need extensive medical treatment that may include multiple surgeries, cosmetic procedures, rehabilitative therapy or daily care. To cover the cost of such treatment, the injury victim will need compensation from the negligent party.
