    Differences Between Motorcycle and Car Accidents

    Differences Between Motorcycle and Car Accidents the snyder law group

    Motorcycle accidents often result in injury and are more challenging to handle than car accidents.

    When compared to other automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents are extremely devastating. Motorcycle accidents differ due to the risks involved when driving a motorcycle. Motorcycles only have two wheels, no airbags or seatbelts, and are much smaller than other vehicles. Furthermore, motorcycles lack the protection of being shielded by metal. Motorcyclists face limited visibility, road hazards, and less stability when on the road. Motorcycle accidents often result in injury and are more challenging to handle than car accidents. Let’s go over the differences between motorcycle and car accidents.

    Motorcycles vs. Cars

    It is known that motorcycles are far more dangerous than cars. Newer cars have anti-lock brakes, seatbelts, airbags, collision warning systems, etc. They come with backup cameras and mirrors, making the whole driving easier and safer. A motorcycle does not have any of those safety features that should protect the rider from an accident. The rider relies only on their helmet. But, a helmet cannot prevent broken ribs, fractured arms or legs, or internal bleeding. The force that throws the rider off the motorcycle is the main reason for most severe injuries.

    Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

    There are several common injuries found in both motorcycle and car accidents. These include lacerations, broken bones, spine, back and neck injuries, and internal injuries. An injury unique to motorcycle collisions is road burn or road rash. This refers to friction burns that shear away skin and tissue when motorcyclists are dragged along the asphalt at high speed after being thrown from the bike. The most severe type of injury is a traumatic brain injury, or TBI because even if the rider has a helmet on, they lack the necessary protections that come with a car.

    Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim

    Motorcycle insurance can be quite complicated, depending on your plan. To make matters more difficult, your case’s details could be confusing or downright lacking. There are usually fewer points of impact in a motorcycle crash versus a typical automobile accident, meaning there is less physical evidence to work with to prove your case. Before speaking with an insurance company, you should contact a personal injury attorney who has experience handling motorcycle accident claims.
