COMMON INJURIES CAUSED BY A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
Motorcycle accidents may cause relatively minor injuries, such as bruises and scrapes, or they may cause serious injury, or even death. Understanding the more common types of injuries caused by motorcycle accidents may help you to prepare yourself and take additional precautions. Below are examples of common motorcycle injuries:
While some head injuries may be minor, other ones may be more serious and can result in a cracked skull or brain damage. To prevent a serious head injury, you should always wear a helmet when on a motorcycle. In 2016, it is estimated that approximately 1,850 lives were saved by wearing a helmet; whereas more than 800 riders lost their lives in the same year because they did not wear one.
When getting into a motorcycle accident, it may be human nature to stretch your arms forward to try and lessen the impact. This may lead to nerve damage in your arm, otherwise known as “biker’s arm.” To minimize potential injury to your arms, it is important to always wear sturdy elbow pads and motorcycling clothes.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are extremely severe and may result in complete paralysis, quadriplegia, or paraplegia. Unfortunately, these injuries cannot usually be avoided. Spinal cord injuries often occur in heavy-duty crashes and may cause permanent disability.
Another common type of motorcycle accident injury is those to the legs, knees, and feet. Although not usually fatal, these injuries may still be quite severe. An untreated knee fracture, for example, could grow into something far worse, such as permanent disability. Always protect your legs, knees, and feet by wearing leather riding clothes and kneepads.
A fifth common motorcycle accident injury is road rash. This typically occurs when you slide sideways across the road after an accident. Any exposed skin may likely develop road rash. Unexposed skin may also suffer road rash if your clothing is too thin. To avoid this injury, you should always wear adequate clothing made specifically for motorcycling.
If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident and have suffered injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pharmaceutical costs, and more. Call an experienced Zinda Law Group personal injury attorney today to discuss what your case may be worth.

STEPS TO TAKE FOLLOWING A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
It is always important to know what to do after a motorcycle accident. Taking these steps may help you seek the medical attention you need, as well as aiding you in your car accident lawsuit by showing who may be held liable for your injuries and property damage.
1. Seek Medical Attention
The first thing you should do following a motorcycle accident is to seek medical attention. Your adrenaline may be high following the accident, which may be masking a more serious injury. A medical professional may be able to properly diagnose each one of your injuries and create an official medical report. Not only is your wellbeing the number one priority, but the medical report may come in handy later when negotiating a settlement agreement.
2. Call the Police
The next step is to contact local law enforcement, such as the police. Law enforcement may be able to investigate the scene of the accident and create an official police report. This report may come in handy to show fault in your car accident lawsuit.
3. Document the Scene
Once you have contacted law enforcement, the next step is to document the scene of the accident. Your memory may fade before your case has been brought to trial, so it is important to write down everything you can remember immediately following the accident. Further, you should take pictures of the accident, the injuries, the property damage, and anything else that may be helpful in proving fault and negotiating your settlement.
4. Speak to an Attorney
You may be wondering if you should speak to an attorney following your motorcycle accident. Negotiating with insurance companies and claim adjusters is often a frustrating and difficult process. Zinda Law Group attorneys are here to assist you through it all. Our firm has years of experience negotiating compensation agreements for our clients. Further, our personal injury lawyers have the resources and experience required to litigate your case if a settlement cannot be made.
