Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents


Motorcycle-related injuries can be severe. A motorcycle accident can result in serious injuries and even death, so it’s important that you know how to protect yourself in the event of an accident. Here we will discuss common injuries from motorcycle accidents.

Road Rash

Road rash is a skin injury caused by friction. This can be caused by the motorcycle, the road or the rider’s own clothing. It may be very painful and require medical attention to treat properly.

Fractures, Sprains, and Dislocations

Fractures, sprains, and dislocations are the most common injuries from motorcycle accidents. If you’re involved in a motorcycle accident where your bike hits another vehicle or gets hit by an object like a pole or tree, you can expect to be treated for these three types of injuries.

Fractures generally occur when there is a sudden deceleration force applied to the body (a crash). This could be caused by hitting something hard or being thrown off the bike at high speeds. The pain associated with a fracture will vary depending on how severe it is and whether there are any additional injuries such as sprain/strain or concussion; however rest is always recommended after such an incident so that healing can occur naturally over time without any surgery needed!

Sprains are defined as “partial tearing” within muscles; these tears typically result from twisting motion during impact such as landing on one side while traveling downhill at high speed (i.e., skidding). Sprains tend not only cause discomfort but also require treatment if left untreated due primarily because they increase risk of further injury – especially if repaired incorrectly! A good rule-of-thumb here: always seek medical attention immediately following any motorcyclist-related accident involving significant trauma whether minor like cuts/scrapes etc…or serious enough like fractures etc…

Upper Extremity Injuries

Upper extremity injuries are common in motorcycle accidents, and they can be severe. One of the most common types of upper extremity injuries is a fracture or dislocation. Fractures occur when there is a break in one or more bones, usually caused by an impact with another object. The broken bone then has to heal on its own without surgery.

When you have an arm injury from a motorcycle accident, it’s important that you get treatment right away so your arm doesn’t further break or swell during this healing process.

When you’re riding a motorcycle, you’re more likely to be injured than when driving in a car. In fact, motorcyclists are more likely to die from injuries sustained in an accident (1). This is because motorcycles are small and have less protection than cars do; they also lack seat belts and airbags—both of which help prevent fatal crashes from happening as often as they do with cars.

Motorcycles also tend to be involved in more accidents than other vehicles because riders tend not only to ride at higher speeds but also tend not wear helmets or protective clothing during riding season (easter weekend). This makes them much more vulnerable if something goes wrong on the roadways around them!


If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact an attorney immediately. The sooner the injuries are evaluated and treated, the better chance
