Drivers are forced to make many key decisions on the road. Unfortunately, there are times when the wrong decision is made. When this happens, there is the chance that one or more people can be injured or killed.
When following a motorcycle, it’s easy for a driver to miscalculate the distance they need in order to safely come to a stop. In the event that the motorcyclist is forced to stop suddenly, the following vehicle could hit the person from behind.
In this type of accident, it’s common for the motorcyclist to be thrown from his or her bike. As a result, the person can suffer a variety of injuries, such as: neck and back injuries, shoulder injuries, burns and abrasions, scars, head injuries, and brain injuries.
If you are injured in a sudden stop motorcycle accident, the first thing you should do is contact police. While this sounds easy enough, if you are seriously injured, you may need to rely on someone else, such as the other driver or a witness, to call for help.
