MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES
Motorcycle accidents and car accidents are not the same. Motorcycle accidents tend to result in different injuries. Insurance coverage and claims are also not the same. Bikers often have an undeserved reputation for being reckless, and these cases often require a stronger fight with the insurance company. At William Mattar law offices, we will fight hard to make sure you’re treated fairly if you’ve been hurt in an accident. It’s our job, and we take it seriously.
COMMON TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES
Motorcycles offer less physical protection than other vehicles, and injuries resulting from accidents with larger vehicles like cars and trucks are often life-altering. Three common types of motorcycle injuries include:
Road rash may occur when unprotected skin makes contact with pavement, gravel, or the road. In addition to wearing a helmet, it is important for bikers to wear protective clothing, such as leather or denim pants and jacket, leather gloves, and steel toed boots.
Motorcycle accidents can easily result in broken bones. Collisions with motor vehicles, barriers, and other objects can cause injuries, such as broken bones, that may result in time away from work, expensive medical procedures, and pain and suffering.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries (STI) include injuries to tendons, ligaments, and muscles. These injuries can range from a contusion to a complete tear, often requiring surgery.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
Even while wearing a helmet, the force biker may experience during a motorcycle crash can cause a TBI that affects memory, vision, and other bodily functions.
