Motorcycle Accident Facts & Figures
According to sources including The Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences, the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the University of Calgary, if a motorcycle accident causes injury, those injuries will generally be ten times more severe than injuries that typically result from a serious car accident. The most common motorbike accident injuries include traumatic head injuries which can include concussion or brain damage; road rash, muscle damage which may be permanent, "biker's arm" – severe damage from the natural inclination to put your arms out in front of you to protect the rest of your body -- and leg injuries that can vary from nerve, skin and muscle damage to shattered bones.
