4 of the Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

• Head injuries
In Michigan, wearing a helmet while operating a motorcycle is optional. With head injuries coming in as the most common injury from motorcycle accidents, opting not to wear a helmet is certainly accompanied by elevated risks. Concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and brain damage can all occur in a motorcycle accident and, in the worst cases, these injuries are debilitating or even fatal.

• Road rash
When a motorcyclist slides across the pavement in a motorcycle accident and concrete rubs on any exposed skin, a motorcyclist can sustain road rash. In many cases, thin clothing can be scraped away by the pavement and reach the skin underneath. Road rash is not like brush burn which is slightly annoying but will heal easily.

• Lower extremity injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 30 percent of non-fatal motorcycle injuries occur on the legs and feet. Lower extremity injuries can include broken legs or feet; scrapes, cuts, or road rash caused by skidding; and severe bruising. Quite often, a rider’s leg can be quickly caught under the motorcycle, causing a fracture.

• Biker’s arm
Biker’s arm is a common motorcycle accident injury, and it occurs when the nerves in a motorcycle rider’s arm are damaged from a fall off of the bike. This force from this kind of injury has been known to cause permanent nerve damage and even paralysis. Bikers often react automatically and attempt to catch themselves, break their fall when they crash, or wrap their arms around themselves in order to lessen the impact that’s coming.
