What Are the Most Common Motorcycle Injuries?

A motorcyclist may experience an accident injury, even if s/he is following the rules of the road to a tee. External factors such as negligent drivers or dangerous road conditions can cause a rider to wipe out. The following types of injuries are among the most common for motorcyclists:

  • Head Injury – Since the brain is arguably the most important organ in the human body, helmet use is necessary for every motorcyclist’s safety, although sometimes a helmet is not enough in especially brutal collisions. Damage to the brain can lead to serious complications or even death. A motorcyclist should always go to a physician for treatment after a head injury, even if the effects are not immediately apparent.
  • Road Rash – Since motorcyclists have little outer protection, they often experience destructive contact with the pavement in an accident. The extreme frictional force can cause severe abrasions and even surface nerve damage. Wounds can easily become infected if not treated and cleaned by a medical professional. Protective leather garments are highly recommended to guard against road rash.
  • Biker’s Arm – In most accidents, the motorcyclist instinctively uses his/her arms to brace for impact. Depending on the force involved, the impact can cause minor to severe damage to the nerves of the arms. This can lead to permanent paralysis of the affected arm. Bikers’ arms can be protected by wearing a sturdy jacket in addition to elbow pads.

The chance of injury and fatality is considerably greater for motorcyclists than it is for other motorists. It goes without saying that all motorcyclists should exercise caution on the road.

The Costs of Motorcycle Injury Treatments

Depending on the severity of the injuries, a motorcycle accident victim may require open-air MRI and radiology services, skin grafts, surgery, and extensive physical rehabilitation sessions, all of which can incur great expenses. For the average person, such costs may only induce debts that can last for many years, if not a lifetime. That is why it is essential to consult with an attorney who has a proven track record of success when it comes to negotiating optimal settlement amounts.

However, these new treatment options do not come cheap. Attorney Tad Thomas and his associates will fight hard to get you the coverage you need for the best medical treatments available.
