Traumatic amputation a real risk in motorcycle accidents

For many Colorado residents, the freedom that riding provides outweighs the risks. Even so, many motorcycle riders keep in mind the fact that they are quite vulnerable to serious injuries if involved in motorcycle accidents. One of the injuries they could suffer is traumatic amputation of a limb.

Justice in motorcycle accidents may come slowly in hit-and-runs

Crashes that appear to involve only one vehicle at first may actually involve another vehicle. Further investigation of the scene may provide evidence of a hit-and-run. This happens in at least some of Colorado's motorcycle accidents that are blamed on rider error at first.

Essure will no longer be available in the US after Dec. 31, 2018

Numerous women across the country, including many here in Colorado, may be happy to hear this news. Essure was already a controversial -- and permanent -- method of birth control after women began suffering from severe complications associated with the device. Bayer, the manufacturer of the device, announced that it was pulling the product from the U.S. market due to a drop in sales, but others say it is due to the ever-increasing number of lawsuits filed against the pharmaceutical giant.

Motorcycle accidents can change riders' lives forever

Riding through Colorado's beautiful mountains and scenery may bring you a sense of peace and joy. You relish the times when you can take to the open road on your motorcycle, but you also know the risks. The chances of you and other riders being severely injured in motorcycle accidents is a very real possibility.

In most motorcycle accidents it's the other guy's fault

Thousands of crashes occur here in Colorado every year. Some of them are motorcycle accidents. Many people make the incorrect assumption that it is the rider who is at fault in most of them. In reality, studies show that over half of accidents involving a motorcycle and a passenger or commercial vehicle result from negligence on the part of the other driver, not the biker.

Colorado motorcycle accidents often have deadly consequences

While motorcyclists have the same rights on the road as the operators of other vehicles, drivers often pay less attention to motorcyclists. Unfortunately, given the difference in size and protection between a motorcycle and a car, motorcycle accidents are far more likely to be serious or even fatal for the biker. A fatal motorcycle crash occurred recently in Colorado, with tragic results.

Motorcycle accidents, devastating injuries and monetary losses

All that is between you and the road is your helmet, your clothes and the two wheels beneath you. In many ways, that gives you a sense of freedom as you ride through Colorado's beautiful mountain scenery, but it also puts you at risk for serious injuries. Motorcycle accidents often end up causing devastating injuries, which ultimately lead to high monetary losses during your recovery.

Traumatic brain injuries common result in motorcycle accidents

No matter how experienced you are as a rider, Colorado's roadways pose numerous risks to you. For instance, traumatic brain injuries are a real possibility in motorcycle accidents regardless of whether you wear a helmet. Such an injury could alter the course of your life forever.

How right-of-way factors into motorcycle accidents

Whether you are at a stop sign, a traffic light or just riding down the road, drivers in passenger cars might have trouble seeing you because of the small size of your vehicle. As a result, another driver might fail to yield the right-of-way to you. This is one of the primary causes of the numerous motorcycle accidents that happen here in Colorado and across the country.

Common causes and injuries of motorcycle accidents

Winter might still have some fight left in it here in Colorado, but that does not stop many people from wishing and waiting for warmer weather. When spring arrives, more people will be out on their motorcycles. Before that happens, it might be a good idea to review safety measures, including the common causes and injuries that occur in motorcycle accidents.
