Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Without the protection of airbags, doors, or roofs, motorcycle accidents often cause serious injuries to riders and their passengers. Common injuries can include:

  • Road rash
    When exposed skin hits the pavement at high speed, severe injuries such as road rash can result. Road rash is a painful and disfiguring condition that often requires skin grafts and months of treatment to heal.
  • Broken bones
    Motorcycles do not have seatbelts, so when accidents occur, riders can be thrown several feet, which may lead to broken bones.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
    Motorcycle riders are at a high risk of suffering severe TBIs in the event of an accident. Wearing a helmet can significantly reduce this risk.
  • Paralysis
    Because of the strong force involved in motorcycle accidents, riders sometimes damage their spinal cords when they impact the ground, vehicles, or other objects. When this happens, partial or complete paralysis may occur.
