Many motorcyclists would say there’s nothing better than riding on the open road on a motorcycle. But sometimes when you hit the road, the road can be unforgiving.
While any motor vehicle accident can result in injuries, motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating since riders are more exposed and vulnerable than car passengers. Even when motorcycle riders are cautious and equipped with the best safety gear, their lives can be forever changed by one wrong turn, or the wrong move of another driver.

Pros and Cons of Motorcycling in NYC
Whether you cruise down a highway or take a ride down the City streets, NYC is an ideal place to explore on a motorcycle.
No one knows these joys – and dangers – better than attorney Michael J. Redenburg. He proudly bears the M status on his driver’s license and enjoyed motorcycling for more than a decade.With his years of experience on the road, he understands the particular risks and rewards of riding a motorcycle, inside and out.
Even the most defensive motorcycle riders take a chance every time they start up their engines. Statistically speaking, you’re more likely to be involved in a motor vehicle accident while riding a motorcycle than while riding in a car or truck. Even with full protective gear, you are more likely to sustain more severe injuries in an accident on a motorcycle than if you were riding in a car.
If you have serious injuries:
If you can tell right away you suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, you should stay put. If others are involved, you should not try to move accident victims from the scene, unless they are in danger of being hit by traffic. Moving an injured victim can significantly worsen spinal injuries, fractures, and other traumatic injuries. If others are helping you, make sure someone calls 911 before doing anything else.
In this situation, paramedics will likely transport you directly to the hospital for emergency trauma care.
At this point, don’t worry about what’s happening at the accident scene. Health should be your priority. Some motorcycle accident victims are unconscious at the scene and wake up in the hospital. If this is the case, try to stay calm as you put together what happened and why you’re there. Follow the doctor’s orders to prevent complications and hope for the best possible prognosis.
