Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

highly recommended personal injury attorneys in los angeles

Motorcycles have increased in number as a means of transportation in recent years, especially among those trying to save money on gas. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle safely necessitates a higher level of ability than driving a car or small truck. To make matters worse, motorcycle accidents cause far more injuries and deaths per year than car or truck accidents.

Everyone involved in a motorcycle accident should seek medical attention, no matter how minor their injuries seem to be. The motorcycle accident lawyers at Ghozland Law Firm provide an overview of common motorcycle accident injuries in California in this article.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries in California

Some common motorcycle accident injuries include:

·       Feet and Leg injuries

Legs and feet are the sources of a large number of non-fatal motorcycle accidents. This may be because a rider's legs are often struck in a collision, or that their feet and legs are the first body parts to touch the ground if they fall to the side. Broken ribs, fractured knees, and road rash are also possible injuries. Riders should wear safety boots and a tough, heavy cloth on their legs to avoid these forms of accidents.

·       Broken Bones

Broken bones are another common injury that can occur in motorcycle accidents. Riders are typically hurled to the ground when motorcycles tip over in collisions. Broken arms, legs, hips, feet, or wrists are the most common injuries in this category, with broken legs being the most popular.

·       Road Rash

When a rider slides against pavement or dirt, they get abrasions and lacerations known as road rash. It's a common motorcycle accident that can vary in severity from mild to major. A first-degree road rash causes skin reddening but does not necessitate medical treatment. It can be treated at home. The skin of a person with a second-degree road rash is broken. More attention is needed, but it does not necessitate a trip to the emergency room. Since several layers of skin have been broken in third-degree road rash, it is a severe condition. To avoid infection, a rider with a severe road rash should seek medical treatment right away. Wearing the right gear is the safest way to avoid road rash.

·       Neck Injuries

Finally, in addition to head injuries, neck injuries are also associated with motorcycle crashes. These injuries can be minor and only last a short time, such as broken collar bones, or they can be severe and result in permanent paralysis or, in some cases, death.

·       Traumatic Brain Injuries

Riders, with and without helmets, can suffer mild to severe traumatic brain injuries. A mild brain injury may be relatively easy to recover from, but moderate to severe TBIs often come with long-term consequences, such as changes in mental and physical capabilities. Severe TBIs can result in coma and death. Properly designed and worn helmets can protect a person from head, neck, and brain injuries. Alabama has a universal helmet law, which means riders of all ages must wear a helmet with a solid exterior and chinstrap.

We Stand Up To Greedy Insurance Companies

Get more compensation from your slip and fall injury with expert legal representation
best personal injury lawyer in LA
With over 40 years of experience, we have handled many slip and fall cases. I can provide you with the caliber of legal services that is normally available only to large companies, due to my experience in large-scale litigation that has resulted in awards of millions of dollars on many occasions. In 2014, Michael Ghozland was named “Street Fighter of the Year” by Consumer Attorneys of California in 2014. Because of my outstanding trial record, winning your case will probably mean obtaining a private settlement, with no need to ever step into a courtroom. Insurance companies know my reputation, and most of them would rather settle than face me in a slip and fall lawsuit.
