How Wearing the Right Equipment Can Help Protect You from Injuries

North Carolina’s universal helmet laws require all motorcycle riders and passengers to wear a helmet. Complying with this law protects your brain from injury and preserves your legal rights if you are involved in an accident.

In addition to a helmet, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation recommends other important gear for riders, including:

  • Face shield and eye protection, which may be part of the helmet
  • Gloves that help you control your bike
  • Long-sleeved jacket and long pants made of abrasion-resistant material
  • Over-ankle boots with good grip for footrests and road
  • Colorful, reflective clothing to improve your visibility to motorists

Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents

Even if you wear the right equipment and take every precaution, you can still be struck by a reckless driver and suffer severe injuries, including spinal damage, head trauma, road rash, fractures, and amputations. Some motorists report not having seen the motorcyclist until it was too late, a problem made worse when distracted drivers take their eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel, or their minds off driving. For this reason, multitasking drivers who use the phone, text, eat, drink, discipline children, or read a navigation system present a substantial hazard to even the most careful motorcyclists.

Poor road conditions can affect drivers of any size vehicle, but a motorcyclist is put at even higher risk of an accident because of preventable roadway problems such as:

  • Potholes
  • Uneven pavement
  • Missing stop signs
  • Broken traffic signals
  • Dim streetlamps
  • Road debris
  • Glass or metal shards
  • Uncovered manholes

We investigate these potential causes of your wreck to determine whether the municipal or state government is liable. Let our firm assist you in recovering the compensation you deserve after a motorcycle wreck.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries because of the limited protection afforded riders. Understanding the common injuries that can transpire is crucial in building a strong compensation case. Some common injuries in motorcycle accidents may include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Motorcycle accidents can lead to traumatic brain injuries, which may have long-term consequences on an individual's cognitive and physical abilities.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The effect of a motorcycle accident can cause very serious damage to the spinal cord, resulting in paralysis or other life-altering conditions.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: Fractures and broken bones are common outcomes of motorcycle accidents.
  • Road Rash and Soft Tissue Injuries: Road rash and soft tissue injuries can be painful and require extensive medical treatment.
