Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle-related injuries are often more severe than injuries suffered in a car accident. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Broken Bones – Broken bones are some of the most common injuries in motorcycle accidents. When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, they are more likely to be thrown from their bike and sustain serious injuries.
- Head Injuries – When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, they can sustain serious head injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries.
- Spinal Cord Injuries – When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, they can sustain serious injuries to their spine, leading to paralysis.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and have sustained any of these injuries, it’s important to seek medical treatment immediately.
How Common Are Fatal Injuries in Motorcycle Crashes?
Fatal injuries are not uncommon in motorcycle accidents. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle riders are more than 28 times more likely to die in a traffic accident than passenger car occupants. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it is important to contact a Fairfax personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
