I n t r o d u c t i o n
Motorcycle accidents often result in devastating
injuries. Fatalities are particularly common,
with the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration reporting that motorcycle riders
are 29 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries
than the occupants of passenger vehicles. Due to
the exposed nature of motorcycle riding, certain
types of injuries are particularly common. Even
wearing full safety gear at the time of the crash
wont necessarily protect a rider from serious or
deadly injuries in this type of collision.

Why You Need A Motorcycle Accident Attorney
After suffering a serious motorcycle accident,
you may be entitled to significant compensation.
A Raleigh motorcycle accident attorney can review
your case and help you pursue the damages you are
owed. The first step is evaluating your injuries
from the accident. Our Motorcycle Accident
Attorney Raleigh NC shares common motorcycle
accident injuries and evaluates your claim with
you and helps you get the best compensation.

1. Broken Bones
Broken bones are common injuries in motorcycle
accidents. When riders go down, they risk
suffering fractures in all parts of the body,
from fingers and toes to the ribs and clavicle.
Some broken bones will heal with stabilization
and rest others may require surgery and
extensive rehabilitation. Unfortunately, even
with these measures, there is no guarantee that
an injured rider will not suffer permanent
complications.

2. Burns
Burns is one of the most common types of injuries
that result from motorcycle accidents. Depending
on the severity of a riders burns, treatment can
range from topical ointments and sterile bandages
to extensive skin grafting.
6
3. Eye and Nose Injuries
Even when they are wearing helmets as required by
North Carolina law, motorcycle riders can still
suffer injury to the face and head in the event
of a high-side or low-side accident. Injuries to
the eyes and nose can occur due to blunt force
trauma and penetrating objects, as well as
lacerations caused by broken visors or eyewear.

4. Internal Injuries
Being thrown from a motorcycle, or into its gas
tank or handlebars, can cause severe internal
injuries. Riders involved in a crash should seek
medical care immediately. Doctors and nurses can
examine you for internal injuries and monitor you
for signs of internal bleeding, organ damage, and
other serious issues.

5. Loss of Limbs
Motorcycle riders may lose a limb as a result of
trauma during the accident. Alternatively, if the
limb is severely damaged in the accident,
amputation may be medically necessary to prevent
further complications. Common issues that may
necessitate amputation of a limb include crush
injuries, severe burns, and infection.

6. Road Rash
A type of abrasion that occurs when a rider's
exposed skin makes contact with the surface of
the road, road rash is one of the most common
injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents. Full
riding gear can help minimize the risk of severe
damage, but consumer riding jackets, pants, and
gloves are not designed to fully withstand the
abrasive force of a slide. This is especially
true when a rider slides while pinned under his
or her motorcycle.
10
7. Severe Cuts and Bruises
When riders get hit by cars, trucks and SUVs,
they often sustain cuts and bruises in addition
to road rash. Severe cuts may require stitches or
surgery, while severe bruises can cause pain and
mobility issues. Severe bruises can also be
symptomatic of internal bleeding and other
internal trauma.
11
8. Soft Tissue and Nerve Damage
When a motorcycle rider is involved in an
accident, the extreme force applied to his or her
ankles and other joints can result in soft tissue
injuries as well as nerve damage. Bone fractures
and severe cuts can also involve soft tissue
injuries as well as nerve damage. Depending on
the severity of these injuries, surgery may be
necessary to repair the tissue or reconstruct the
nerve. In some cases, soft tissue and nerve
damage can be permanent.
12
9. Spinal Cord Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are a common cause of spinal
cord injuries. Twisting or contorting the back
and blunt force trauma can both cause spinal cord
damage. Spinal cord injuries can range from minor
(herniated discs) to severe (spinal fractures),
and long-term effects can range from chronic pain
and limited mobility to full or partial paralysis.
13
10. Traumatic Brain Injuries
Although helmets reduce the risk of traumatic
brain injuries (TBI), they do not prevent TBI
entirely. Similar to spinal cord injuries, TBIs
can range widely in terms of their severity. Some
riders may sustain concussions while others could
suffer a TBI that leads to coma, permanent brain
damage, cognitive impairments, and even brain
death.
