Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
A motorcycle accident can have a severe and sudden impact on your life. Unfortunately, the consequences of these accidents are often lasting. People involved in these accidents are often left with serious injuries that affect their lives forever. Some of the most common injuries that victims suffer include:
- Head Injuries: Head injuries are one of the most severe and common injuries in motorcycle crashes. They can range from concussions to traumatic brain injuries and can have long-lasting effects on a rider’s cognitive abilities and motor skills.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: These serious injuries can require extensive medical care. Unfortunately, many people who suffer spinal cord injuries end up with some form of paralysis.
- Fractures and Broken Bones: Motorcycle crashes often lead to fractures and broken bones due to the high impact forces involved. Common fractures include those in the arms, legs, wrists, and collarbones. These injuries may require surgery and prolonged rehabilitation.
- Internal Organ Injuries: These injuries can be especially life-threatening. We often see motorcyclists left with punctured lungs, ruptured spleens, kidney injuries, and other internal injuries that require immediate medical attention.
- Road Rash: Road rash refers to the abrasions and skin injuries that occur when a rider’s unprotected body slides across the pavement during a crash. It can range from mild to severe, with deep lacerations requiring skin grafts and extensive treatment.
Any type of serious injury can force victims to undergo extensive medical treatment. If you have been hurt as a result of a motorcycle accident, you may have legal options available.
