Motorcycle accidents are some of the most serious, often deadly, type of accidents. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you know this first-hand. Your injury may cause staggeringly high medical bills and may prevent you from returning to work and providing for yourself and your family.
After your accident, it’s essential that you seek medical treatment right away. Even with a helmet, a motorcycle accident can result in devastating and life-threatening injuries. Some injuries, especially head and brain injuries, do not show up until days or weeks after the accident.
Common injuries from motorcycle accidents include:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Chronic pain
- Brain injuries
- Head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
When you’ve seen a doctor and documented your injuries, it’s important to talk to an attorney about your options.
