Motorcycle Accidents in California
Anybody involved in a motorbike accident runs the potential of incurring catastrophic injuries, some of which could be fatal. As a result of the lack of a steel frame or metal body that is used to protect people inside other types of vehicles, motorcyclists are significantly more vulnerable in the event of an accident. As a result, their bodies often take the full force of the impact from passing vehicles and other objects during accidents.
Injuries incurred by motorcyclists are generally more serious because of this, requiring quick and extensive medical attention. Motorcycle riders are vulnerable to a wide range of internal and external injuries in the event of an accident. Some of the most common injuries reported in motorcycle accidents include:
- Back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries or other head injuries
- Broken bones
- Bone fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Eye injuries
- Scrapes and abrasions from road rash
Those who are involved in motorbike accidents are more likely to pass away as a result of their injuries due to the vulnerability of these victims during accidents. Unfortunately, victims that do survive motorcycle accidents often require extensive medical treatment. The treatment that victims retire can be costly and incredibly time-consuming.
