Motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in severe injuries than those involving automobiles.

The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Motorcycle accidents involving cars: Motorcycles are often involved in accidents with cars. Cars turning into the path of a motorcycle are one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents involving cars.
  • Motorcycle accidents involving trucks: Trucks and other large vehicles are often involved in motorcycle accidents. Cars pulling out in front of a motorcycle are one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents involving trucks.
  • Motorcycle accidents involving buses: Buses are often involved in motorcycle accidents. Buses turning into the path of a motorcycle are one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents involving buses.

Understanding Motorcycle Accident Injuries and Their Impact

Motorcycle accidents can result in a range of injuries, with some being more common than others. One of the most frequent injuries is road rash, which occurs when a rider's skin makes contact with the road surface, leading to abrasions and potential infections.

Another common injury is fractures, often involving the arms, legs, or wrists, as riders instinctively try to break their fall. Head injuries are a significant concern and can range from concussions to more severe traumatic brain injuries.  Additionally, injuries to the spine and neck can be devastating, potentially causing long-term disabilities.

Alaska's Motorcycle Helmet Laws and Your Safety

In Alaska, the regulations surrounding motorcycle helmet usage vary depending on age and your license. For riders aged 17 and under, wearing a motorcycle helmet is required. This is to ensure their safety while riding.

However, the rules change for those who are 18 years or older who has the appropriate license and endorsement. In this case, Alaskan law allows riders the freedom to make a personal choice regarding helmet usage.

While it's not required for those 18 or older, it's strongly recommended that even experienced riders consider wearing a helmet as an essential safety precaution to protect themselves in the event of an accident. Ultimately, if you are 18 or older, the decision to wear a helmet or not is up to the individual.
