Personal Attention From The Experienced Advocate You Deserve

What are you most likely to injure in a motorcycle crash?

When we read about motorcycle accidents in the news, oftentimes they involve a rider fatality. This is devastating, considering how many accidents are preventable in the first place. However, a crash doesn't need to be fatal to be devastating.

Riders can suffer a wide range of non-fatal injuries if they are involved in an accident, and some body parts are more vulnerable than others. Below, we look at some of the most commonly injured parts of the body, as well as what you can do if you are among those injured in a motorcycle crash.

As noted in this article that references several studies on non-fatal motorcycle injuries, the following is a list of body parts injured in a motorcycle, in order of most common to least common.

  • Legs and feet 
  • Head and neck 
  • Chest, shoulders and back 
  • Arms and hands
  • Hips and pelvis

Injuries involving the legs, feet, head and neck accounted for more than half of the injuries treated in an emergency room.

The effect of injuries to these body parts can be devastating. Foot and leg injuries can result in broken bones, difficulty walking and balancing, chronic pain and potentially even a loss of limb. Injuries to the head and neck can cause chronic headaches, brain damage, paralysis, mobility limitations and broken facial bones.

Considering how severe these injuries can be, it is crucial for victims to take seriously their options to file a legal claim. A lawsuit can't undo the damage that has been done, but it can help you pursue the compensation you need to treat injuries and recover. A crash doesn't need to be fatal to change someone's life; non-fatal injuries can be permanent, disfiguring and very difficult to treat.

You should not have to pay the price for someone else's bad decision and mistakes behind the wheel. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle crash, you can talk to an attorney about filing a legal claim to secure the financial remedies you deserve.
