Motorcycle accident attorney Byron Browne of Browne Law Group understands how the lives of people can change in a motorcycle crash. An injury can affect every aspect of your life. You’re in pain, and medical expenses are adding up fast. If you’ve been hurt in Gilbert or anywhere in Arizona, he can help.
Motorcyclists have little protection in a collision with a car or other vehicle. So, the injuries they suffer can be very serious, especially in crashes at higher speeds. These injuries can include:
Motorcyclists can suffer fractures in the arm, legs, ribs, collarbone, back, or face. Types of fractures include stable, compound, transverse, oblique, and comminuted. Depending on the location and severity of the break, surgery may be needed. Screws and rods may be needed to keep the bone set in place.
Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
This can happen even if a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet. The force of impact can cause the brain to crash into the inside of the skull, resulting in bleeding or bruising. Symptoms can include loss of consciousness, headache, nausea, confusion, memory problems, sleeping problems, and difficulty with balance.
During crashes, motorcyclists are often thrown off their bikes or dragged along the pavement. Contact with the hard surface of the road can result in skin being scraped. This is a painful injury that can lead to infection and scarring. Skin grafting may be required in severe cases.
During a crash, a motorcycle weighing hundreds of pounds can fall on the rider’s arm. This can result in damage to the median, radial, or ulnar nerves. Symptoms include pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling. Surgery and physical therapy may be needed in some cases.
Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord connects the brain to other parts of the body. Complete damage to the spinal cord can result in paralysis. Incomplete damage can result in weakness, problems with coordination, difficulty walking, numbness, and loss of control over bodily functions.
These include knee injuries, shattered wrists, rolled or sprained ankles, and twisted elbows.
Road rash and lacerations can result in scarring. In some cases, motorcyclists can suffer disfiguring burns. Reconstructive surgery may be needed to help repair the damage.
Soft Tissue Injuries
These include damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments, resulting in pain and limited mobility.
These can include damage to internal organs as well as bruising and puncture wounds.
Paying for medical expenses after a motorcycle accident
Injured motorcyclists often need to be taken to the hospital by ambulance after an accident. They may need X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans. Doctors may order lab tests and other diagnostic tests. Surgery may be required, as well as medication, physical therapy, and home health care.
Medical expenses can add up quickly and become overwhelming. They may also experience a loss of income if they can’t work because of their injuries. This can lead to financial stress.
Who will pay these expenses? If a negligent driver caused your accident, you shouldn’t have to pay. Byron Browne has got your back.
