What are common injuries in San Diego motorcycle accidents?
When a car is in a collision, the vehicle absorbs much of the impact, which helps to limit damage to the driver. Motorcyclists are at a much higher risk of suffering injuries in an accident than vehicle drivers due to the limited protection they have while riding. Some common injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident include:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Lacerations and road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head, neck and spinal cord damage
When you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is critical to contact a seasoned motorcycle accident attorney who will fight for your rights and help you secure the compensation you need for your injuries and damages.
