Injuries to Motorcyclists
Even if a motorcyclist wears a helmet and protective gear, an accident can still result in severe injuries. Motorcyclists are not protected by seat belts, airbags, bumpers, and other safety features of passenger vehicles. Because the body is exposed to an impact, motorcyclists often sustain multiple traumatic injuries that can be life-changing or fatal.
Some common injuries to motorcyclists include:
- Broken or shattered bones
- Face and jaw fractures
- Dental damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Fractured pelvis and ribs
- Crush injuries
These injuries require emergency medical care, and accident victims might need to be hospitalized, undergo surgery, and engage in a lengthy course of physical therapy. Some motorcyclists might have permanent impairments, disabilities, or disfigurement.
