Serious Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Crashes in Hartford
Traffic accidents are never less than terrible. There is almost always some measure of damage and personal injury involved. But motorcycle accidents can bring some of the worst injuries possible for any kind of traffic accident. Due to the minimal amount of protection a motorcyclist has, any impact at a higher speed could result in serious injury, especially if they are sent flying any distance from the point of impact.
Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries, however, are traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, any collision with another vehicle at a medium to high speed could cause a blow to the head resulting in minor to severe brain injury. From minor concussions to brain damage to comas, TBI is a serious injury that requires immediate and extensive medical care.
Some other common injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
Any kind of accident injury will require treatment and, unless you get adequate legal representation from a Hartford personal injury lawyer you may end up paying for the bills out of pocket.
