The chances of suffering a life-changing injury in a motorcycle accident, or even a fatal injury, are extremely high. Most motorcyclists are well aware of the risks they take, but even those who understand the dangers are often astounded at just how little it can take for a motorcyclist to be killed or critically wounded. In spite of any protection a motorcyclist is wearing, such as leather jacket, gloves, and helmet, sometimes there is simply no avoiding a serious injury.
Naturally, many people will think of the most common types of injuries such as head and brain injuries or road rashes, but depending on the circumstances, the situation could be much worse for a biker. For example, even if a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, but the visor of the helmet is open, a stray shard of debris or even just a stick lying on the ground could puncture an eye during a fall, causing blindness.
Of course, the potential injuries such as paralysis and blindness are only half of the story. The recovery process from such an injury will often take weeks or even months, preventing the victim from earning any wages. Depending on the extent of the injury, the victim may never be able to perform the functions of his or her job again, meaning that future earnings are impossible.
