Motorcycle accident injury is all too common…
Las Vegas Personal injury lawyer, J.W. Boyer comments, “Deaths from motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles are all too common. Motorcycles have no real safety features other than its intrinsic maneuverability and stopping power features due to their lightweight design.
If a motorcycle is hit by a car or a motorcycle hits a car, the likely hood of injury is severe. Even a minor accident involving a motorcycle can result in serious injuries as a motorcycle operator has very minimal protection from impacts. Helmets do save lives but can only do so much when high speeds and hard impacts are involved. It is recommended that motorcycle operators wear protective clothing in addition to a helmet. Still, a motorcycle operator can be killed in the blink of an eye if they are hit by another car or collides with a stationary object.
