Low Speeds vs. High Speeds
At low speeds such as those traveled in city streets or high-traffic situations, motorcyclists can suffer any number of injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
At high speeds, however, the injuries motorcyclists can sustain are far more serious. Motorcyclists who are involved in high-speed accidents, whether with other vehicles or in a single-bike accident, may suffer:
- Road-rash burn injuries
- Severed limbs & extremities
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrongful Death
Even at low speeds, collisions with extra-heavy trucks and other commercial vehicles can increase the likelihood for the most serious types of motorcycle injuries as well.
