Are serious injuries more common in motorcycle accidents than in auto crashes?

Yes, motorcycle accidents more often result in serious injuries. This is because motorcycles provide little physical protection between the rider and the road, and they are significantly smaller and lighter than other vehicles on the road. Motorcycle riders involved in a crash are more likely to suffer serious head injuries, neck and spine injuries, burns and, in worst cases, death.

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to know what to do to ensure you get the help you need and protect your rights. For more details, read What Should You Do After a Motorcycle Accident?
