What are the Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries?

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents happen all too often in the state of California. Whether you are a novice rider or have been riding for decades, you know how important it is to practice safety procedures when on your bike. You can be as safe as possible when riding your motorcycle and a driver near you could cause an accident. Our Los Angeles motorcycle crash lawyer would like to discuss the most common motorcycle accident injuries in today’s post.

Road Rash

One of the most common types of motorcycle accidents is road rash. When a motorcycle is hit by another vehicle it will throw the rider off the bike and onto the road. It doesn’t matter how fast the other vehicle is going, there is no protection around the biker to prevent him or her from being thrown from the bike. As the body slides across the road it will suffer road rash, which often looks like burns on the skin.

Broken Bones

It’s also common for victims of motorcycle accidents to suffer broken bones. Since there is no protection for the body it’s easy for an arm, leg, hand, foot, or arm to break in the crash. Most breaks occur when the rider braces him or herself for the fall, straightening their arm as they hit the ground.

Injuries to the Head

Whether you ride with a helmet or take the risk of riding without one, you can suffer an injury to your head in a motorcycle accident. Head injuries can include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), skull fractures, facial fractures, facial burns, and much more. Your head can easily be injured in a motorcycle crash even when you are wearing a helmet. It all depends on the force of the impact of your head on the other vehicle or the road.

Damage to the Muscles

It’s not uncommon for victims of motorcycle accidents to suffer damage to their muscles. This damage might not be present right after the accident as it could develop over a period of weeks or months. The muscle damage could be limited or it could be permanent, which could lead the accident victim to struggle with motor skills.

Injuries to the Spinal Cord

Motorcycle accident victims could also suffer from spine injuries. These injuries could range from minor to severe, with the most severe causing the victim to be disabled permanently. Spinal cord injuries can also lead to issues with your vision, arms, legs, and other areas of the body.

Seek Medical Treatment

Even if you did not suffer a severe injury in your motorcycle accident you should still seek medical treatment. It’s quite possible that you could have a delayed onset of pain. This is common because the adrenaline in your body blocks the pain from presenting itself to you. If you seek medical treatment the doctor will be able to run a series of tests to spot internal bleeding and other damage.
