Wisconsin’s Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Wisconsin is home to many bikers cruising the streets and freeways in summer. Unfortunately, accidents happen and the vast majority of motorcycle crashes result in serious injury or death. Even minor wrecks can cause significant injury to riders. Here is a list of the three most common types of motorcycle accident injuries in Wisconsin.
1) Head, Neck and Brain Injury
Almost any motorcycle collision can cause skull fractures, brain injury and severe whiplash. Helmets decrease the likelihood of fatal head injuries, but even the best helmet cannot prevent some neck damage or concussions. Neck injuries caused by motorcycle crashes range from minor stiffness up to and including total paralysis.
2) Broken Arm and Leg
Humans instinctively cover their head with their arms in the moments immediately before an impact. This defensive maneuver may reduce the severity of a head injury, but it results in broken or severely bruised arms. Biker’s Arm is a term often used to describe the injury motorcycle riders sustain to their arms because of a crash. Broken, shattered legs are also common injuries caused by motorcycle accidents. Sometimes, riders escape with only bruised feet or knees, but many accidents result in permanently disabling injuries to the legs.
3) Road Rash and Severe Skin and Muscle Damage
Bikers are often thrown from their motorcycle by a crash and slide along the pavement. Although it may not sound like a severe injury, road rash is actually the pavement grinding off layers of skin, damaging muscle and nerve tissue. The affected areas are at an increased risk of infection, adding complications to the already significant trauma of extensive scrapes and deep scratches.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, do not forego medical treatment. Many motorcycle crash related injuries are not immediately apparent but, left untreated, can result in permanent disability or death. Be sure to seek medical attention immediately and then contact the experienced motorcycle crash attorneys at McLario, Helm, Bertling, & Spiegel, S.C. for no-win-no-fee representation and maximum compensation for your pain and suffering.
