When a motorcycle accident takes place, the motorcyclist may be at-risk for sustaining personal injuries or even fatalities in the crash. Due to the lack of safety features and open nature of a bike, life-threatening injuries are more common. If the motorcyclist survives the accident, the individual may incur debilitating injuries that adversely affect the person’s daily life and ability to earn an income.
