The Injuries

Right now, the state of Washington is eleventh in the country when it comes to the total motorcycle registrations. That is a bunch of motorcycles. It is no surprise that this is a favorite place to ride. We have wonderful sites and plenty of open roads. Unfortunately, if we look at the latest reporting year we see that there were nearly 2,500 motorcycle collisions.

Motorcyclists have to be vigilant when they hit the road, but no matter how safely they operate, they cannot control the actions of other drivers around them. Injuries from motorcycle crashes can range from minor to more serious:

Minor Injuries:

  • Road rash
  • Bumps and bruises
  • Lacerations

Major Injuries

  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage

We need to point out that even minor injuries can result in expensive medical bills and time away from work. For major injuries like the ones listed above, the consequences can be devastating. It is not uncommon for a motorcycle accident victim to need extensive and long-term medical care. This can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Will your insurance cover all of that?

Negligent Drivers

Driver error or negligence are some of the main causes of motorcycle accidents. This can include:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Speeding and aggressive drivers

Any time another driver’s recklessness causes a motorcyclist harm, they should be held fully accountable for what they have done.

Dangerous Roadways

Motorcyclists also have to contend with poorly maintained roadways. It is the responsibility of government agencies and those they contract with to ensure that all motorists are safe. This includes performing regular inspections and maintenance. Failing to do this can lead to major accidents.
