What Are Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
The safety gear motorcyclists wear, such as a helmet, does not do much to protect them against vehicles and the road in a collision. There is a much higher risk for serious injury because of the lack of protection a motorcycle offers riders. Victims of motorcycle accidents may end up needing major surgeries, physical therapy, physical rehabilitation and other types of treatment, sometimes even for years after the accident. This is why it is so important to have an Austin personal injury lawyer who will fight for you and try to recover compensation to cover your costs.
A few of the most common injuries include the following:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Road rash
- Joint injuries
- Limb loss
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
Sadly, there is a higher incidence of riders who lose their life in a motorcycle accident. Because motorcycles offer far less protection than a vehicle, which has a protective “shell” and encloses all of the passengers. There are also a slew of other safety features, such as airbags and seat belts to keep passengers as safe as possible in a collision. Although motorcyclists wear protective gear to cover their legs, arms, hands, as well as helmets, there is still an exceptionally high risk of injury.
