Motorcycle Accidents In Utah
Motorcyclists have a greater chance of death and severe injury than automobile drivers. Some injuries that may occur include road rash, brain damage, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. This is due in part to the decrease in physical protection offered by motorcycles. Damage to the bike, loss of income and ability to work, as well as medical, rehabilitation, and ongoing care costs can put a major financial strain on a motorcyclist and their family.
