Motorcycle accidents are among the more serious types of vehicular crashes in the country, often resulting in major injuries or fatalities. In fact, studies show that motorcycle riders are much more prone to injuries or even death when involved in a crash compared to those involved in auto accidents. This is simply because they are more exposed, and do not have the protection offered by seatbelts and airbags found in other forms of vehicles.
Factors that can cause motorbike accidents include limited visibility, road hazards and motorcycle defects. Common injuries sustained by motorcycle accident victims in North Carolina are broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, road rash, fractures, and disfigurement.
Unfortunately, recovering from a bike crash can cause the victim and the victim’s family a great deal of stress and grief, as the recovery process may involve costly medical expenses and hospital stays, physical rehabilitation, surgery, extended periods away from work, and intensive medication.
