Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
In a collision between a motorcycle and a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist will always incur the most damage. Lack of protection in a crash can lead to life-threatening injuries, while the driver of the motor vehicle may remain unharmed. Motorcyclists are prone to many unique personal injuries due to the nature of collisions.
- Lower-body injuries, especially to the pelvis and legs
- Facial lacerations and road rash
- Traumatic tattooing, or severe road rash
- Broken wrists and elbows from trying to break a fall
- Traumatic brain injuries from blunt force trauma to the head
Motorcycle gear such as a helmet can help protect a rider in a crash, but he or she will still be highly susceptible to serious injuries. Many victims suffer severe, long-lasting injuries that take months to fully heal. Others will never fully recover and may live the rest of their lives with disabilities or disfigurements. We can help hold negligent parties accountable for inflicting serious injuries on motorcyclists in Glendale.

Many people feel that motorcycle riders are simply thrill-seekers who put themselves in harm’s way. This is not the case. Riders are most often at the mercy of the drivers around them. Whether in a car or truck, driver inattention or negligence can quickly lead to serious motorcycle accidents with severe injuries.
Why Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?
Negligence is the main cause of motorcycle accidents in Arizona. Motor vehicle driver errors such as tailgating, speeding, ignoring right-of-way, distracted driving, driving under the influence, and making unsafe lane changes put motorcyclists at risk. Every driver has a responsibility to pay attention to the road and to reasonably prevent collisions with others on the roadway. Failure to uphold these duties, resulting in a preventable crash, is negligence. Proving negligence and obtaining damages, however, may take help from an attorney.
