Personal Injury: Motorcycle Crash
While any type of accident on the roadway can be precarious, motorcycle crashes are particularly dangerous. Because the driver is exposed to the elements and not restrained or protected by seat belts, air bags, or a steel frame, the threat of serious injury or death is high. If you have been involved in a motorcycle crash and are able to walk away, you are one of the lucky ones.
But even if you live through a motorcycle crash, you still have plenty of consequences and side effects to deal with. Odds are, you have probably suffered some personal injuries that commanded moderate-to-extensive medical attention. Some of the most common injuries associated to motorcycle crashes are:
Bone Fractures. Since motorcycles cannot physically stand upright on their own, accidents cause the bike to fall over. In this case, the driver can suffer broken or fractured bones.
Road Rash. Because motorcycles do not enclose the driver, occupants usually make contact with the road surface during an accident. Even with protective clothing, this high-force contact can leave severe skin abrasions known as road rash. These could be minimal scratches, second degree burns, or third degree road rash which completely removes the skin.
Head Injuries. Some of the most serious injuries related to motorcycle crashes are head injuries. Although wearing a helmet can seriously reduce the risk of head injury, it does not completely eliminate it. Motorcycle injuries which throw the occupant to the surface can lead to concussions or serious brain damage.
