Motorcycle riders are more likely to have sustained more serious injuries when involved in an accident and are more vulnerable then other vehicle drivers and passengers. There are a variety of reasons why motorcyclists are at a greater risk, one of them being that they are more exposed and have less protection.
Types of injuries sustained by motorcycle users
- Cuts, bruises and skin abrasions
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Brain damage
- Strains and sprains

Motorcyclists are also more likely to suffer fatalities. If you are a motorcyclist or even a passenger make sure you take precautions and drive safely. Always wear a helmet and protective clothing to minimise risk of an injury.
