Top 5 Motorcycle Injuries

As of 2018, 8.3 million motorcycles were registered in the U.S. If you own one of them and thoroughly enjoy experiencing the thrill of the open road, you should realize, however, that you face an extremely high risk of receiving serious injuries in the event your bike crashes. In fact, cycling is the riskiest transportation modality. Statistics show that upwards of 80% of bike accidents result in injury to the rider, many of them catastrophic, and you are 26 times more likely to die when riding a bike than when riding in a car or other motor vehicle. You may wish to contact a Baltimore MD Motorcycle Accident Attorney.

Here is an overview of the 5 most common injuries bike riders sustain.

1. Head and Neck Injuries

Even if you wear a regulation helmet, it cannot really protect your head and neck in the event of a crash, especially a high-speed one. When your head impacts the road, a guardrail, a tree or other stationary object, the jolt is extreme enough to cause a concussion or other traumatic brain injury wherein your brain “sloshes around” inside your skull, injuring its delicate tissues in the process. A TBI can result in lasting consequences, including the following:

  • Vision problems
  • Hearing problems
  • Balance problems
  • Cognitive problems
  • Memory problems
  • Psychological problems

Your neck is also at extreme risk in a bike crash. If you break or crush one of your cervical vertebrae, you may become quadriplegic, meaning that you could have little, if any, ability to voluntarily move or feel anything below your point of injury.

2. Leg Injuries

Unfortunately, leg injuries can be, and often are, severe in a motorcycle crash. Not only can they result in fractures, but they can also cause so much damage that one or both of your legs may need to be amputated. A Baltimore MD Motorcycle Accident Attorney can help you navigate the post-accident process.

3. Arm Injuries

Your arms are likewise at great risk for injury in a motorcycle accident. Given that your bike offers you no protection whatsoever, you likely will unconsciously throw out your hands and arms to try to break your impending fall. As with your legs, this can result in multiple fractures or crush injuries extensive enough to require amputation.

4. Muscle and Nerve Damage

Virtually every part of your body is susceptible to muscle and nerve damage in a motorcycle accident. Especially vulnerable areas include the following:

  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Legs
  • Feet

5. Road Rash

When your body slides across the pavement or ground after an accident throws you from your bike, your skin can suffer extreme damage. Even protective clothing likely can’t prevent it since the clothing itself often tears or shreds, leaving your skin to absorb gravel and other road debris. If you sustain a severe road rash, you may require skin grafts to repair the damage to the greatest extent possible. In any event, you can expect disfiguring scars.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
