The 4 Most Common Motorcycle Injuries In Ft. Lauderdale

Although motorcycles give riders a sense of freedom that other vehicles do not, they’re also more easily involved in accidents. Motorcycle injuries in Fort Lauderdale tend to be quite high. Generally speaking, if you ride a motorcycle, there are specific injuries that are more common if you should end up in an accident whether it’s your fault or another motorist. These are the most common motorcycle injuries in Ft. Lauderdale: Image

Fractures

Not surprisingly, fractures are very common injuries that occur for motorcycle riders. Broken arms and legs are the most common, but these injuries often involve nerves and ligaments as well. Many are complex and can even result in the rider needing an amputation.

Road Rash

When a motorcycle rider is thrown from his or her bike, road rash is a common injury that’s sustained. Friction as a result of being thrown and hitting the ground at certain speeds results in painful skin abrasions. Some of these can be permanent. In the most extreme cases, the rider may need plastic surgery to repair disfigurement or scarring.

Biker’s Arm

Biker’s arm is a common type of injury sustained by motorcycle riders when they fall off their bike and hit the ground. The arm and shoulder are usually affected, bringing about nerve damage and even paralysis.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Perhaps the most serious injury motorcycle riders can suffer is traumatic brain injury. Often when riders are in accidents, they’re thrown from the bike and hit their head. Usually, this results when the person doesn’t lose consciousness and assumes he or she is okay enough to forgo medical attention.
