Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

It’s not easy to walk away from a motorcycle crash. Motorcyclists and their passengers are far more vulnerable to severe injury than the occupants of any other type of motor vehicle. Indeed, motorcyclists are about 32 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in an accident and about six times more likely to be seriously injured. In 2000 alone, 2,897 motorcyclists were killed in accidents, while another 58,000 were injured. In 2004, these numbers rose to 4,008 and 76,000 respectively.

Aside from wrongful death, common injuries sustained by bikers in motorcycle crashes include:

  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation and dismemberment
  • Burns and scars
  • Eye injuries and blindness
