What is the Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injury?

A motorcycle rider is viewed from behind as he sits waiting in a line of trafficIt’s hard to say for sure exactly what the Number 1 most-common injury is across all motorcyclists in the U.S. Injuries to the thorax, upper and lower extremities, and head are quite common.

What we do know is that motorcycles don’t offer any protection – you probably know this to be true as well, if you are a rider. Having worked with numerous injured motorcyclists over the years, we know bikers to be responsible, aware individuals who end up getting hurt, often through no fault of their own. The idea that motorcyclists are reckless and constantly causing accidents isn’t borne out based on the experiences we are familiar with. All it takes is for the driver of a passenger vehicle to ignore a motorcyclist’s rights or fail to notice the bike on the road, and a crash can easily result.

Here are some of the injuries our clients have suffered:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Extreme burns
  • Extensive scars
  • Loss of limb, hand, or finger
  • Extremity injuries that necessitate amputation
  • Spinal cord and back injuries

It goes without saying that these injuries are severe. The pain alone can be life-altering, not to mention the medical expenses and adjustments you may have to make in order to live with your injury.
