Motorcycle Accidents Can Equal Life Threatening Injuries
Many people who live in San Antonio ride motorcycles. You can usually catch a motorcyclist on the streets of San Antonio every day. These bikers hope to travel safely to and from work. The unfortunate news is that motorcyclists are involved in accidents more than all other vehicles on our streets. Drivers operating passenger vehicles are often too distracted to spot motorcyclists, which puts bikers in inevitable danger. More than 80% of all reported motorcycle accidents result in serious injury or death to the motorcyclist. A motorcycle crash is a complex event involving the interaction of human, vehicle, and environmental factors. While there is no "typical" motorcycle accident, what is "typical" is that a motorcycle crash is a violent event. Motorcycle accidents can equal life threatening injuries.

Motorcycle accidents can equal life threatening injuries. The motorcycle itself provides no head injury protection to the rider or passenger. Ejection from the motorcycle is a common injury pathway. If a motorcycle comes to a sudden stop and the rider is ejected from the motorcycle, the rider will forcibly strike objects in the path as well as the ground. Motorcycle injuries are more expensive because they tend to be more serious and have much longer rehabilitation periods. For example, according to comprehensive insurance industry data shows that 23% of motorcycle claimants have injuries in multiple locations;
18% suffer head injuries with permanent disability and 10% of claimants have injuries to the back or spine. Some of these result in permanent paraplegia or quadriplegia. This means that 50% of motorcycle accident claimants have the sort of life-threatening injuries from which some never recover.
