Motorcycle Injuries

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle injuries vary from individual to individual and from accident to accident. However, lawyers and doctors who work with injured motorcyclists tend to observe injuries that fall into the following categories:

  • Serious Injuries
  • Typically more serious overall than is generally the case with car accident.
  • Back and Neck Injuries
  • Often leading to lengthy recuperation and chronic pain.
  • Head Injuries
  • Ranging from minor concussions to vegetative state.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries vary in severity depending on the location of the injury on the spine.
  • Orthopedic Injuries
  • Including broken arms, legs, wrists, elbows, knees, hips and ankles.
  • Wrist Injuries
  • Sometimes requiring surgery and lengthy recuperation.
  • Amputation Injuries
  • Often requiring an accident victim to wear a prosthesis.
  • Road Rash
  • A painful skin injury that may require skin grafts and a risk of infection.
  • Fatal Injuries
  • Sometimes resulting in death on impact or, in other cases, causing death soon after an accident.

The severity of your injury may not be apparent at the time of the accident. Some injuries, such as herniated disks in the backbone, grow more painful over time. For this reason, it is very important to have thorough medical examinations on the day of the accident and in the following days and weeks as your doctor recommends and as symptoms warrant. And it is important not to accept a low settlement offer from an insurance claims adjuster until you, your doctor and your attorney believe that is in your best interest.
