Motorcycle accidents can cause debilitating injuries

Most motorcycle enthusiasts in Colorado love taking to the open roads during the summer months. A spokesperson for the Orthopaedic Trauma Association says a significant percentage of the medical treatment orthopedic surgeons provide involves victims of motorcycle accidents. He reminds bikers to ensure that their motorcycles are in good working order because broken bones are caused by broken bikes.

Furthermore, frequent practicing of driving skills is crucial because motorcyclists need more control and skills than drivers of automobiles. The surgeon says typical injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents include fractured legs, arms, feet, wrists and spines. Some of the injuries can be life-altering and might lead to permanent disabilities.

Precautions include wearing the necessary protective gear, the most important being a helmet. Safety authorities say a helmet significantly lowers the risk of severe head trauma and even death. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, experience and advanced motorcycling skills are no excuse for riding without a helmet. Statistics show that more than 50 % of fatal bike accidents involve experienced riders over the age of 40.

Sadly, many traumatic injuries and even fatalities follow motorcycle accidents that were caused by negligent drivers of vehicles. Victims often face long-term physical and financial consequences. The civil justice system of Colorado allows crash victims to pursue claims for financial relief. This is a complicated field of the law, which might be best handled by an experienced personal injury attorney. The lawyer can assist with establishing negligence and documenting current and future financial and emotional damages to be adjudicated by the court.
