Motorcycle Accidents in Minnesota

Riding a motorcycle puts you at a much higher risk for serious injury or death than motorists in other vehicles and their passengers. Your body as a rider is completely exposed when colliding with another vehicle or when being thrown from your bike. Even with a helmet and protective gear, the impact can be disastrous. This is why motorcyclists suffer injuries at a higher rate and more severity in comparison to the occupants of cars.

Common injuries for motorcyclists can include:

  • Road rash
  • Lacerations
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprains
  • Concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries and organ damage
  • Dislocations
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Injuries to lower extremities, such as knees, calves, ankles, and feet
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Such injuries can require intensive medical care, put you out of work for weeks or months or longer, and leave you physically and emotionally traumatized. The accident can also result in total damage to your bike. All of this can take a huge financial toll while you are trying to recover.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

One of the major causes of motorcycle crashes is that other motorists fail to see you in traffic. This is due to the smaller size of motorcycles which can make visibility limited, especially in glare, bad weather conditions, when in a driver’s blind spot, or when you and your bike are obstructed by other vehicles.

Other causes of motorcycle crashes can include motorist left turns into the path of an oncoming motorcyclist or failing to see the left-turn signal of a biker in traffic. Motorcycles are less stable than cars and hazardous road conditions can also be a significant cause of crashes, such as slippery, uneven, or debris-filled pavements. Like anyone in traffic, motorcyclists are also subject to unsafe drivers who speed, drink and drive, text and drive, fail to follow traffic laws, or drive in a reckless or aggressive manner. Where any of these causes comprise negligence, you have the right to pursue compensation from the offending party.
