Motorcycles have a number of advantages over cars including gas conservation and the sheer thrill and exhilaration they provide. They do not, however, provide any protection for their riders. There are no seatbelts, airbags or steel frames that surround the rider or passenger.
Riders who remain on their vehicle during a collision may suffer blunt trauma from the impact or devastating injuries as they are thrown on to the roadway. Riders who are ejected from their motorcycle often suffer catastrophic head and back injuries.
One case in particular involved a couple that died in a late night motorcycle accident in Buena Park. The rider's were ejected from the bike, struck a pole and died. The driver, an Army Ranger was due to be redeployed that morning, but instead his parents were left to bury him. His female passenger died during surgery.
Common Injuries Suffered in Motorcycle Accidents
Victims of motorcycle accidents may suffer a wide range of injuries. A few of the most common injuries include:
- Head Injuries: Even when the rider is following California law by wearing a helmet, there is the potential for a head injury to occur. Anyone who strikes his or her head during a collision should seek immediate medical attention. Even if they do not lose consciousness, they may have suffered a concussion that can get worse over time if not properly diagnosed and treated. Motorcycle riders also may experience severe headaches, memory issues, nausea, dizziness or even more serious conditions including a loss of physical and mental abilities that could result in permanent disabilities.
- Back Injuries: Many motorcycle accidents involve a sudden jerking or twisting motion. In such cases, the vertebrae may sustain trauma. A blunt impact to the back or a crushing impact may also result in back injuries. Whenever the vertebrae undergo severe trauma, there is the potential for spinal cord damage they may include the loss of feeling or physical ability below the location of the trauma.
- Broken Bones: The initial impact of a collision may result in crushing broken bone injuries to riders. Multiple bone fractures often require surgical procedures and prolonged periods of time away from work. Victims who suffer broken bones also often need several physical therapy sessions to regain mobility and range of motion.
- Lacerations: It is common for broken glass, metal and loose gravel to cause devastating laceration injuries that require immediate medical attention.
Motorcycle accident victims need an experienced team to represent their case. There's a stigma attached to motorcycle accident victims that we don't normally see in auto accidents.
