Large trucks of all kinds present certain dangers for other drivers, no matter what vehicle they may be operating. But motorcycle riders are placed at particular risks by trucks, because the size difference is so great. Motorcycles weigh an average 800 pounds, while trucks can weigh up to 100,000 pounds! Obviously, the negligence of a truck driver can spell disaster for someone on a motorcycle.
Common Injuries In A Motorcycle Accident
Motorcyclists are less protected than other motorists, both from environmental conditions and other vehicles. The injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be severe:
- Severe head trauma, concussion, and traumatic brain injury
- Fractured bones
- Spinal cord and neck injuries
- Loss of limbs
