How Often Do Amputations Occur In Motorcycle Crashes?

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, we know that there were 13,969 total motorcyclist injuries during the latest reporting year across the state. Data also shows us that 488 motorcycle riders lost their lives that year. While the OTS does not give a breakdown of what type of injuries occur in these incidents, we do know that motorcyclists are much more likely to sustain amputation injuries in an accident than those inside traditional passenger vehicles.

The very nature of motorcycle riding is such that the cyclist is much more exposed and susceptible to severe injuries. Peer-reviewed studies have shown that approximately 21% of all adult traumatic amputations are caused by motorcycle accidents.

Most commonly, motorcycle accident amputations affect the victim’s lower limbs. This means that a motorcyclist’s legs and feet usually sustain the most damage. However, due to a motorcyclist’s overall exposure, amputations to the hands and arms are going to occur more often to  the motorcyclist involved in a crash than to passengers inside traditional passenger vehicles involved in a crash.

What Compensation Is Available For These Cases?

If you or somebody you care about have been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the careless or negligent actions of another driver, you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
