Have You Been Seriously Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
The Goss Law Firm — Your Kansas City Personal Injury Attorneys
Motorcycle riders enjoy being out on the open roads and the sense of freedom and exhilaration they feel. For many motorcyclists, it is more than a hobby, it is a way of life. However, despite advances in helmet technology, protective clothing and other safety equipment, motorcycle riders still face a higher risk of injury than other motor vehicle drivers.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Neck Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Burn Injuries
- Skin Abrasions
Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries that affect the brain and spinal cord and could be life-altering. In fact, motorcycle fatalities occur on average 30x more than car accident fatalities.

Why are Motorcycle Accident Risks Higher?
Motorcyclists are at higher risk for a number of reasons including that the structure of the vehicle is open and offers little protection. Motorcycles are also more difficult for other vehicles to see, are more challenging to control and less stable than passenger cars.
- Approximately 5,000 motorcyclists die in accidents each year
- Motorcyclists face a chance of injury five times greater than any typical passenger-car driver
- Motorcyclists face risk of fatal injury 30 times greater than passengers in an automobile
- More than 70% of accidents between motorcycles and other passenger cars occur at intersections
- Other vehicles violate a rider’s right-of-way in more than two-thirds of motorcycle accidents
