DuPage County Motorcycle Accident Injury LawyerRiding a motorcycle can be a great experience, but it can also be dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 5,000 motorcycle fatalities that occurred in the United States in 2017. Even if a wrongful death does not occur in a motorcycle accident, motorcyclists may experience several different types of injuries. The NHTSA also reports that there were roughly 89,000 motorcyclists injured in 2017. These injuries can range from minor to severe, depending on the circumstances of a crash, and they may include lacerations and cuts or spinal cord or brain damage. Listed below are a few more of the most common injuries that can occur in a motorcycle accident:

Injuries Stemming From Motorcycle Accidents

If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you know how serious these injuries can be. The severity of many motorcycle accident injuries can depend on what a person was wearing at the time of the accident. For example, a motorcyclist who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the impact will most likely suffer a more extreme head injury. Some other common injuries that can take place in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Road rash: This type of abrasive injury occurs when a person's skin comes into contact with the road. It can be the result of both minor and major motorcycle accidents, and it may be characterized as either a first, second or third-degree injury.

  • Broken bones: Easy to recognize and often quite painful, fractured bones can result when a rider strikes their motorcycle, another vehicle, the ground, or another object.

  • Head injuries: Traumatic brain injuries can range in severity from minor concussions to more serious types of injuries. In some cases, a person may experience blood vessel damage, comas, or seizures.

  • Soft tissue injuries: These can include any type of injury to the tendons, ligaments, or muscles. Injuries to these soft tissues can include sprains, rips, tears, or strains. Whiplash is a common injury that falls under this category.
