An unfortunate reality of motorcycle accidents is that the bike riders who are involved in an accident are often seriously injured. While people involved in car accidents are often able to walk away because of a car’s various safety features, and because it is essentially a big, protective metal shell, people in motorcycle accidents do not have the luxury of air bags, seatbelts, crumple zones, or other safety features. Although a motorcycle rider can wear protective equipment, including a helmet, motorcycle accidents can result in serious trauma. The injuries caused by a motorcycle accident frequently take a person years to recover from.
