Oregon Motorcycle Accidents

According to statistics from the Oregon Department of Transportation, there are more than 1,000 motorcycle crashes that take place across our state each year. Further, based on additional statistics, we know that more than 80% of these motorcycle crashes will result in injuries for the motorcycle rider. Motorcycles offer little protection from the force and impact of a crash. Further, following an accident, riders are often thrown from their bike which can result in additional injuries.

In most cases, motorcycle riders are seriously hurt in accidents. Some common types of injuries include broken bones, head and neck trauma, spinal cord injuries, and soft tissue injuries. Crash victims will frequently find that they require extensive and costly medical treatment in order to return to the condition that they enjoyed prior to the accident.
