Motorcyclists face broken limbs, road rash and fatal wounds

The injuries suffered by motorcycle riders in Louisiana are normally more serious than those suffered by individuals riding in vehicles. The unique vulnerability experienced by bikers leaves them open to debilitating injuries that often have permanent repercussions from broken limbs, road rash and other injuries. In many cases, fatal wounds are the tragic result.

Motorcycle vs. car accident ends in tragedy

A driver and his passenger were heading east on a portion of Louisiana Highway 182 in the southern part of the state. The passenger called to the driver to make a sudden left turn. The driver's admitted failure to see the two motorcycles coming from the opposite direction led to the resulting car accident.

One of the most dangerous times for any Louisiana driver involves merging onto a highway. The merging vehicle needs to increase speed to match the traffic already on the highway and watch for obstacles and a space to enter at the same time. All of that occurs in a matter of seconds, and any mistake could lead to a crash involving serious or fatal wounds.

Many serious accidents involve pedestrians and bicyclists

The streets of Baton Rouge are nearly always bustling with activity. Commercial trucks, passenger vehicles and motorcycles share the roadways in a sometimes precarious ballet. Bicycles and pedestrians are allowed to be on the same roads, but they do not enjoy the same relative safety since they are virtually unprotected in comparison. For this reason, few accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists are minor -- in fact, many are considered serious accidents.
