The Indianapolis accident attorneys of Glaser and Ebbs Attorneys at Law, understand why more and more men and women are being drawn to motorcycle riding in Indiana. Many ride for recreation. They enjoy the thrill of the open road and the friendships they can forge as members of a motorcycle organization. Many people use motorcycles as their main form of transportation because they are cost-efficient.
Our attorneys also understand why Indiana motorcycle accidents are increasing. The reality is that too many car and truck drivers do not know how to safely share the road with motorcycles. Many crashes are caused by vehicle drivers who either fail to recognize motorcyclists or refuse to respect their rights.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 80 percent of all reported motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the motorcyclist. Motorcycle drivers and their passengers face a unique risk of injury even at low speeds.
The differences in size between a motorcycle and another automobile often result in motorcyclists sustaining traumatic injuries including:
- Bone fractures
- Road rash (including first, second, and third-degree road rash)
- Neck injuries
- Injuries to the chest
- Leg and knee injuries
