Unlike their four-wheeled counterparts, motorcycles don’t have safety features such as seat belts, airbags, or roll bars to keep riders safe in a collision. As a result, high-speed accidents can cause severe injuries, leaving you with steep medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. In this article, top personal injury lawyer Brad Tabakin will explore just some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries.

Read on to learn about a few common motorcycle accident injuries:
1. Head Trauma
While a helmet will protect your head in a crash, a high-speed collision can still lead to a concussion and irreparable brain damage. If you are involved in an accident, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your doctor right away. Getting your injuries documented can help your attorney tie them to the accident and prevent the insurance company from arguing that you have not taken the necessary steps to mitigate your damages.
2. Neck Injuries
High-velocity crash forces can put immense strain on your neck and spinal cord, leading to muscle pain, fractures, and even breaks. Neck and spine injuries can be especially severe and could lead to paralysis or even death.
3. Road Rash
Sliding across rough tarmac can tear your skin to shreds. Road rash wounds can get infected, leaving behind unsightly scars that require expensive cosmetic surgery to repair. If your doctor prescribes a course of antibiotics for road rash, make sure you complete the course to prevent infection.
