Why Head Trauma in a Motorcycle Accident?

The sheer force and speed of impact in a traffic accident involving a motorcycle is far more likely to cause serious injury to the rider of the motorcycle as opposed to the driver or occupant of any other motor vehicle. A motorcycle weighs much less than even a compact car and, as a result, will sustain the most damage in an accident.

Because the rider is relatively unprotected, he or she will be at a higher risk of head injury, which will be caused by a sudden and violent impact. Head injuries in motorcycle accidents are often irreversible. Because of the serious nature of these injuries, it is vital to get the counsel of a Rio Rancho motorcycle injury lawyer.
