How Common Are Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycles are not the safest form of transportation. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle accidents are 28 times more likely to result in death and four times more likely to result in injury than car accidents, based on the number of vehicle miles traveled. The Insurance Information Institute reports that motorcyclists had an injury rate of 419 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, compared to an injury rate of 77 for car occupants. 

The fatality rates are even bleaker: Motorcyclists were killed at a rate of 30.20 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, while passenger car occupants had a fatality rate of 1.26 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled.

These numbers make sense given the lack of safety features for motorcyclists, such as a steel frame, passenger compartment, seat belts, or airbags. 

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Helmets can save lives, but traumatic brain injuries can still occur even when wearing one. 

One of the most devastating injuries that a motorcyclist can suffer in an accident is a traumatic brain injury, which can cause long-lasting consequences, including:

  • Seizures
  • Nerve damage
  • Coma
  • Stroke
  • Difficulty learning, remembering, and making decisions
  • Speech problems
  • Altered personality 
  • Mood swings, depression, and anxiety

Suffering a traumatic brain injury can also make it more likely that you will have Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease. 

Spinal Cord Injuries

Motorcycle accident victims can suffer spinal cord injuries when they are ejected from their bikes or when they come into contact with the pavement. Spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis and loss of mobility.  

Leg Injuries

While they are not usually as severe as spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries, leg injuries are the most common type of motorcycle accident injury. These injuries occur when the motorcycle tips over and you slide.

Road Rash 

Road rash is a painful skin injury that occurs when your skin comes into contact with an abrasive surface like the pavement, and you suffer abrasions. 

Arm and Hand Injuries

Arm and hand injuries often occur in motorcycle accidents when victims try to stop themselves during a slide-out or after being ejected from the bike. They can suffer broken and sprained arms or hands. 

What You Must Prove To Recover Compensation In a Nevada Personal Injury Case

To recover compensation for your medical bills and other damages, you will have to establish the following legal elements:

  • Duty of care – Duty of care is the responsibility of the defendant to prevent injuries to you. Drivers must obey traffic laws and try to avoid crashing into other motorists.
  • Breach of duty – A breach of duty occurs when a defendant violates their duty of care, such as breaking a traffic law. 
  • CausationThe breach of duty must directly cause the accident. 
  • Damages – Damages are the losses you suffered because of the accident, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can review your case and explain if you can prove these legal elements.
