Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents
Below are a few of the common injuries sustained during motorcycle accidents, but we understand that no two accidents are alike and that your injuries may be entirely different than the ones listed. Regardless, contact us to get working on your case as soon as possible.
Road rash is a non-scientific term for serious abrasions that someone can suffer when they fall from their motorcycle at speed, and slide across the concrete. In some instances, road rash can require skin grafts and other plastic surgeries to treat, while in other cases the road rash may be dressed, treated with ointment, and left to heal on its own. To avoid road rash, it is important to wear protective clothing at all times while riding on or operating a motorcycle.
Fractures and Broken Bones
When a motorcycle rider or driver is thrown off of their vehicle and hit the ground, they are at a high risk of suffering an impact injury like a bone fracture. Fractures must be treated immediately by a doctor to ensure that the bone is reset, and other possible injuries such as internal bleeding or hematomas around the break are addressed, and that the injured area is properly protected with a cast, splint, or another sort of device.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can happen even with very minor impacts depending on a variety of factors but are especially common when a person is involved in a high-speed accident or suffers from a significant impact from the crash. This is especially relevant on motorcycles because in most cases the rider is thrown to the ground no matter how fast or slow they are going, and may then collide with other objects once thrown from the vehicle.
Internal bleeding is a very serious type of injury for a variety of reasons. One is that, since you are unable to see internal bleeding, it may be ignored by the victim. People have a natural instinct to “shake it off” after getting into an accident, but you should not ignore your discomfort or downplay any possible injury. Internal bleeding can cause serious, lasting damage and even death if not treated properly, and you will need to work with a doctor immediately.
