What Injuries Are Most Common in Motorcycle Accidents?
Head TraumaHead trauma can be especially serious and may even be fatal. One of the biggest dangers of head trauma is that it is not always immediately apparent. While wearing a DOT-approved helmet when riding is not required by Florida law, it is strongly encouraged.
Spinal InjuriesThough generally not fatal, spinal trauma can leave you disabled or even paralyzed. Moving someone with a spinal injury in the wrong way can increase the risk of permanent damage. When spinal injuries are suspected, the injured person should remain still until help arrives.
Broken BonesBroken bones of all types are seen after motorcycle accidents. Bones may be broken on impact with a vehicle or object or by being crushed between objects. Although broken bones are not often fatal, failure to seek medical assistance can lead to permanent disability or disfigurement.
Internal InjuriesAnother type of injury that can go undetected and has the potential to be fatal is an internal injury. Even if you think you are fine, it is highly recommended that you seek medical attention anyway. Your physician will generally instruct friends or family to keep a close eye for several hours and report any new symptoms.
Road RashRoad rash can range from superficial to severe, depending on the speed at impact and the protective clothing and footwear worn by the rider. Road rash should be treated by a medical professional to help prevent infection. The majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers. Always take the time to look twice and save a life.
