Few experiences compare to hitting the open road on a motorcycle. Operating a powerful, high-speed machine can be an invigorating experience, partially because of the inherent risks involved. As exhilarating as motorcycle-riding can be, it is also a very dangerous pastime.
In Dartmouth, most people who operate a motorcycle are aware that, regardless of their own degree of skill, level of experience, or use of caution, each time they take their bikes for a ride, they are taking their lives in their hands. Motorcycle crashes all-too frequently lead to permanent, debilitating physical injuries, as well as fatalities. And, while motorcycle enthusiasts are often stereotyped as being reckless, the truth of the matter is most people who drive motorcycles do so with the utmost caution.
As a matter of fact, in the Dartmouth area, most motorcycle accidents that cause injuries requiring hospitalization are the result of other drivers’ negligence. That is because, unlike other motor vehicles that provide their operators and passengers with built-in security features, motorcycle riders have only their wearable protective equipment to rely on in the event of a collision. Due to this lack of protective safety measures and the high-speeds at which motorcycle riders travel, even the most skilled, cautious, safety-minded motorcyclists are vulnerable to accidents caused by the wrongful conduct of other road users.
Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable on the road, and therefore more susceptible to injuries than other motor vehicle operators. When unexpected, traumatic collisions with other vehicles occur, motorcyclists can lose their lives, or sustain severe injuries.
Some injuries frequently sustained in motorcycle accidents include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Strains and sprains
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Facial and dental injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
