We Handle All Motorcycle Injuries

Because of the exposed nature of a motorcycle accident, you could suffer from a number of different injuries. We've compiled a list of common motorcycle injuries, ranging from moderate to severe.

  • Road Rash – Even the most protective gear has limits in a crash. Road rash is a combination of bruises and cuts on the skin that, without proper medical attention, could lead to possible infections.
  • Burns – Whether your fuel ignites or a searing exhaust pipe touches your skin, there's a possibility of suffering severe burns in a motorcycle accident.
  • Broken Bones – Being thrown or falling from your bike could lead to fractures and broken bones. These are some of the most common injuries in a motorcycle accident.
  • Amputation – Sometimes motorcycle serious injuries can require amputations that result in lifelong medical costs and drastic life changes.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury – Injuries to the head account for nearly 22% of all motorcycle injuries. The effects of a traumatic brain injury can last a lifetime and result in permanent disability. Even if your state doesn't require helmets, we recommend always wearing one when you're riding.
  • Spinal Cord Injury – Motorcycle accidents that cause spinal cord injuries often resulting in paralysis. This could lead to full-time care and a lifetime of expensive medical bills.
  • Death – In the most serious cases, motorcycle accidents can result in deaths that leave families grieving and lost, especially as funerary expenses accumulate.
