The Hazards of Riding: Top Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

In 2021, there were about 4,200 motorcycle accidents in the state of Georgia, with about 2,700 injuries, and 150 deaths reported. Of all fatal motor vehicle accidents, the National Safety Council estimates that just about 14% involve motorcycles. This is notable, considering only 3% of registered vehicles are motorcycles. The majority of motorcycle accidents occur in good weather conditions.

The biggest hazards to motorcycle operators will always be other drivers. Motorcyclists do not have the protection that a vehicle offers and are vulnerable to catastrophic injury or death in any collision. While there is no single cause of motorcycle accidents, some common factors include:

  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driving under the influence
  • Disregard for the “right of way”
  • Bad weather conditions
  • Road hazards and defects such as potholes and construction zones

The 5 Most Devastating Injuries Resulting from a Motorcycle Crash

Around 80% of collisions involving motorcycles have some sort of injury. Motorcyclists simply do not have the protection offered by motor vehicles, and as such, a motorcycle accident is more likely to result in a severe injury than a car accident. Operators and passengers involved in motorcycle accidents suffer physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially.

An experienced, dedicated lawyer at our Marietta personal injury law office can help you recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to following an accident. We handle all types of automobile and truck accident cases throughout the state of Georgia. Do not delay in contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer - time is of the essence.

The National Safety Council says that motorcycle riders are active participants in their own safety. In Georgia, motorcycle operators and passengers are required to wear a helmet. Wearing a motorcycle helmet can significantly reduce the risk of fatalities and head injuries after a bike collision. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), helmets are 37% effective in preventing deaths for operators and 41% effective for passengers. And that's not all, they are also 69% effective in reducing the risk of head injuries! So, if you're planning on hitting the road with your motorcycle, make sure you always wear a helmet to protect yourself and your passengers.

motorcycle accident injury

The most common injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident include:

  •  Traumatic brain injuries: Your skull holds your brain, and any injuries to your skull or brain can be serious, catastrophic, and life-changing.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Injury to the cervical region, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, or sacral spine can be permanently disabling.
  • Leg injuries: Injuries to the knees, calves, ankles, feet, and toes are common. Without proper treatment and care, these injuries can lead to complications or long-term disability.
  • Road rash injuries: When a rider is thrown across asphalt or pavement, layers of skin may be peeled away, causing painful abrasions vulnerable to infection. Treatment may involve stitches, skin grafts, debridement, or other surgery. Injured victims may be left with nerve damage, scarring, and excruciating pain.
  • Upper extremity injuries: Without the protection offered by automobile seat belts, bikers’ arms often suffer the initial impact of being thrown from a bike.

With many severe injuries, being released from the hospital is actually only the beginning of a long uphill battle. The physical pain and emotional suffering, coupled with the financial devastation of not being able to work, can seem insurmountable. Connecting with a skilled and highly experienced personal injury lawyer immediately is crucial. If you have sustained any of the above injuries in a motorcycle accident in Marietta or Cobb County as a result of someone else's carelessness, contact The Graham Firm right away for help. We are here for you every step of the way.

Steps to Take If You've Been Involved in a Motorcycle Collision

If you or a loved one are involved in a motorcycle accident, take the following steps to protect your legal rights in a personal injury or wrongful death claim:

1. Report the accident: The accident should be reported immediately to local authorities by calling 911. Police responding will conduct an investigation and prepare a report. This report will be the initial evidence of our claim. If an additional investigation is required to gather evidence, your Georgia personal injury lawyer can arrange this.

2. Get medical attention: If you suffer any injury following your accident, seek immediate medical treatment. Do not downplay your injuries or pain, or take a “wait and see approach.” Complete recommended treatment, including follow-up visits with your primary care provider or specialists. Your treatment record (and subsequent medical bills) document your injuries and are important evidence should you later pursue a claim. If you fail to complete medical treatment, insurance companies may suggest that you were not as seriously injured as you claim.

3. Tell Your Own Insurance Company About Your Accident: If you have your own insurance policy, the terms of your policy require you to report the accident promptly. Only disclose facts, do not speculate on fault or your physical state.

4. Talk to a Motorcycle Accident Attorney: Following an injury accident, it is never too soon to speak with a lawyer. Your lawyer can help you hold the at-fault driver (and any other negligent parties) accountable for your loss.
