Nebraska motorcycle riders are frequently at risk for accidents because drivers do not accommodate them on busy streets and highways. Although bikers have a right to take up a full lane on roadways, individuals in other vehicles often do not look out for motorcyclists, which often leads to many accidents.
In crashes, bikers are more at risk for severe injuries because they are not protected by seatbelts, safety glass and airbags. You can take precautions such as wearing your helmet and being aware while riding, but accidents often result from drivers not watching for you. For motorcycle riders, an accident can mean catastrophic injuries to the spinal cord, burns, road rash, limb amputations or closed head trauma.
If you or a family member has suffered an injury, you or your family may be faced with high medical bills and lost income and earning potential. The emotional pain and suffering can take a toll on you, especially if you are severely injured or have lost someone. In some cases, a long-term injury may mean you are not able to go back to work.
