Motorcycle Accident Injuries

By Colt Law Firm  Jan. 24, 2011 10:53p

Some of the most dangerous and injurious types of accidents that occur every year are those accidents involving motorcycles. Motorcycle accidents are a particularly dangerous type of accident because the rider does not have standard safety precautions such as seatbelts, airbags, or the protective metal frame of the vehicle. This leaves motorcycle riders especially vulnerable to collision accidents, which can result in them being thrown violently from their motorcycle into whatever is directly in their way, whether it be another car or the pavement. In many situations, the driver of a passenger vehicle does not notice the motorcycle driver in another lane due to the driver's "blind spots" and will simply run into the motorcycle. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident you should contact a Denver car accident lawyer as soon as you have received medical treatment so that you can fight for monetary compensation.

An accident such as this can result in extremely serious injuries or even death caused by the impact of being thrown from the bike and colliding with the ground or another object at high speeds. Without protective gear, or when protective gear fails, these riders are completely vulnerable to any hazardous situation that may arise. At best, riders may be wearing a helmet, gloves, booths and protective riding clothing. At worst, a rider may be wearing none of these. These types of hazards leave a motorcycle rider 37 times more likely than passenger vehicles to suffer a fatality when involved in an accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
