No one expects to be injured in an accident when they start their bike and pull away. Unfortunately motorcycle drivers and their passengers are no match for the weight and forces associated with other vehicles on the roadway and motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries requiring an extensive period of recovery.
Apart from death and serious head injuries, the most common types of injuries are broken bones and fractures to all parts of the body including the shoulders, the back, legs and arms. While sounding minor, road rash is one of the most painful injuries to suffer. Internal injuries such as a collapsed lung or lacerated spleen can be life-threatening. Damage to the lungs, broken ribs or a ruptured spleen require ongoing medical care and an extensive recovery. Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries to the head, neck and spine. Severe motorcycle accidents involving Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI or MTBI) or serious injuries to the spinal cord, vertebrae and nerves can result in permanent loss of mobility or a limited range of motion requiring continuous medical care, permanent modifications to one’s home or vehicle, and ongoing therapy or treatment.
