Bikers are no strangers to motorcycle injuries. Whether you experience a bad case of road rash from taking a turn too fast, a concussion from a motorcycle crash, or even a case of numbness in the hands from riding too much, after enough time on the motorcycle, you are sure to experience an injury or two. As a motorcycle lawyer, I have spoken with hundreds of injured bikers and have heard countless stories of the pain and suffering caused by crashes.
Traumatic brain injuries range from mild concussions to severe, fatal injuries. Whenever you experience any head trauma in a crash, no matter how mild, you should get checked out by a medical professional. Brain injuries can be slow to develop after a crash. Although you may feel alright initially, your brain may be swelling or filling with fluid. Even non-life-threatening TBIs can leave you unable to think clearly and can impact the rest of your life.
Ranging from strains and sprains to broken bones and amputations, leg injuries can be severe enough to affect you permanently. No one wants to spend years in a wheelchair, unable to ride a motorcycle or even walk.
Sprains, strains and torn muscles and ligaments may seem insignificant, but they can be extremely painful and, in some cases require surgery.
Neck injuries like whiplash, sprained neck and neck fractures are frequently experienced by those involved in motorcycle crashes. Statistics show that these injuries occur in 22 percent of motorcycle crashes and these injuries can be life-threatening. If you have any pain in your neck following a crash, even if you do not experience the pain until a day or two after the accident, you should get it checked out by a physician. Fractures in the vertebrae are not always very painful initially, but without proper treatment, they can cause ongoing medical problems. Never neglect pain following a crash.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle crash, you should get checked out by a medical professional. After a motorcycle crash, you also deserve to have an experienced accident lawyer on your side.
