What Are The Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Federal highway safety data indicates that approximately 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in injuries to the rider/passenger. Unfortunately, motorcycle crash injuries have the potential to be devastating, even deadly. Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries reported in Vermont include:
- Road rash;
- Whiplash (soft tissue damage);
- Biker’s arm;
- Broken bones;
- Joint injuries;
- Concussions/traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
- Internal organ injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries; and
All motorcycle accident injuries require immediate medical attention. In many cases, injured motorcyclists are more severely hurt than they initially realize. It is not uncommon for pain to emerge 24 to 72 hours after an accident. You need to see a doctor right away after a motorcycle accident—not only to protect your own health and well-being, but to ensure you are eligible to bring a legal claim. If you do not seek medical treatment, you will not be able to recover compensation for your injuries or your pain and suffering.
Motorcycle Accident Liability In Vermont
Vermont is an ‘at-fault motorcycle accident state. The party responsible for causing a motorcycle crash can be held liable for the resulting damages. In most cases, motorcycle accident claims are filed against negligent drivers. Though, other defendants, including negligent motorcycle manufacturers may be held liable as well. While motorcyclists face some unfair stereotypes from insurance companies, the reality is that other drivers are liable for a significant percentage of motorcycle collisions.

- Speeding motorists;
- Unsafe lane changes;
- Failure to yield;
- Vehicles turning left in front a motorcycle;
