Our committed Indianapolis motorcycle accident lawyer explores the three most prevalent motorcycle injuries:

  1. Road Rash: Many motorcyclists choose leather gear not only for fashion but also for protection against road rash. This painful skin abrasion occurs when a rider skids along the road after a crash. Despite seeming minor, road rash can cause significant pain and permanent disfigurement. Moreover, it poses a high risk of infection, often requiring skin grafts and surgical treatment.

  2. Bone Fractures: In motorcycle accidents, the bike often halts suddenly while the rider keeps moving, resulting in severe injuries upon hitting the ground. As a result, riders frequently need medical attention for fractures in their arms, legs, wrists, and ankles. The force of these accidents may necessitate surgical intervention and can have lasting effects.

  3. Traumatic Brain Injuries: If a motorcyclist's head experiences impact during a crash, they may suffer from concussions, minor brain injuries, or fatal head trauma. This type of injury is the leading cause of fatal motorcycle accidents. While helmets reduce damage and save lives, it's essential to understand that they cannot completely prevent head injuries in accidents.
