Was the Other Driver Negligent in Your Car Versus Motorcycle Accident?
Far too often we are the victim of someone else’s outright carelessness or recklessness. While our roads are intended to be shared by responsible, law-abiding commuters, this is not always the case. Some examples are:
- Under the influence of drugs
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Texting while driving
- Eating while driving
In 2006 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 13.1 cars out of every 100,000 ended up in fatal crashes, where we saw that number skyrocket to 73.24 of every 100,000 motorcycles involved in a fatal crash. Per vehicle mile traveled, motorcycles’ risk of a fatal crash is 35 times that of an automobile.

Types of Injuries Often Observed After a Motorcycle Crash
- Collision with unforgiving barriers, or badly placed roadside lampposts, signs, fences etc.
- Concussion and brain damage, as the head violently contacts other vehicles or objects.
- Broken joints (elbows, shoulders, hips, knees and wrists), fingers, spine and neck, for the same reason.
- Soft tissue (skin and muscle) damage as the body slides across the surface.
- Facial disfigurement, if in the absence of a full-face helmet, the unprotected face slides across the ground or smashes into an object. Thirty-five percent of all crashes show major impact on the chin-bar area.
Always remember to drive defensively and with constant awareness of weather conditions and especially the drivers around you.
