Motorcycle accident injuries often devastating
Motorcyclists have very little protection from the force of a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds slamming into them. Unfortunately, a motorcyclist also commonly bears the brunt of two impacts – one with a vehicle and one with the ground.
Data available from the Colorado Department of Transportation shows us that there were 103 motorcyclist fatalities during the latest reporting year across the state, which accounted for 17.3% of the total traffic fatalities that year. Many other motorcycle riders and passengers sustained severe injuries, including the following:
- Spinal cord trauma (possible paralysis)
- Head injuries/traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or road rash
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents revolve around the actions of other drivers on the roadway. In many cases, drivers in traditional passenger vehicles do not give motorcyclists the space they deserve on the roadway, and regularly follow them too closely or pass them unsafely.
