There are many kinds of injuries that people suffer in collisions, but as a motorcyclist, you have fewer protections and a higher risk of several serious complications. Head injuries, back injuries and others impact you immediately and for the foreseeable future. Here are five common injury types that may result in your needing long-term medical care or assistance.
If you are a motorcyclist in Michigan, unless you've been living far off the grid in the U.P. for a couple of years, you have heard by now that the state has modified its law requiring riders and passengers to wear helmets. While this may certainly be seen as a win for motorcyclists' rights, it is not one that is without its share of risks.
While the purpose of traffic laws is to keep people on the roads safe, many of these laws receive a significant amount of opposition. For example, many motorcyclists in Michigan argue against a mandatory helmet law. In response to this opposition, Michigan repealed its universal helmet law several years ago.
