Motorcycle Accidents and Catastrophic Injuries

Motorcycle Accidents and Catastrophic Injuries

Accidents can happen at any given moment, but aside from large commercial trucking wrecks, few collisions have the potential to cause catastrophic injuries as much as motorcycle accidents. These types of accidents have the potential to cause significant harm because of the lack of safety for motorcyclists.

Learn more about the catastrophic injuries that can occur as a result of these types of accidents.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild (concussions) to severe (complete memory loss and cognitive issues). Motorcycle accidents can result in these serious injuries even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet.

This is because injuries can occur even as a result of your brain crashing around inside of your skull—something that can happen when a motorcyclist is ejected from his or her vehicle.

Friction Burns

Burn injuries are commonly chalked up to fire, scalding hot items, or other similar situations. However, friction burns can also be considered catastrophic—and this is something that commonly happens when a motorcyclist crashes and suffers road rash.

Friction burns can cause the victim to lose layers of skin and create serious harm.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Because motorcycle accidents can result in the rider being ejected from his or her motorcycle, the individual may suffer a spinal cord injury if they land awkwardly on their neck or part of their back. This can lead to paralysis or other injuries that impact mobility long into the future.

At Roman & Gaynor, we work hard to help our clients seek compensation after serious injuries caused by negligence. Those who suffer harm as a result of a motorcycle accident should recognize their rights when someone else’s actions are the main cause of the wreck.
