Most common injuries from a motorcycle accident

While most drivers realize that motorcycles can give you an exciting ride on California's highways, these smaller vehicles also provide less protection in the event of a collision with a car or other type of vehicle. Passengers on motorbikes often sustain injuries when they crash, although the type and severity differs in each accident. We at E and E Law Group can help you obtain the compensation you need to recover from a motorcycle accident, no matter what your injuries.


According to RideApart.com, the majority of injuries to motorcycle riders occur in the lower extremeties. One study revealed that between 48 and 59 percent of all injuries occured in the lower half of your body. Helmeted riders are more likely to only suffer injuries to the lower extremeties since their heads are protected. 


The next most commonly-injured area was the upper extremeties. After this, the locations began to differ depending on age and helmet usage. Riders who were over the age of 40 reported that the next area to receive the most frequent injuries was the thorax, even amongst those who were not wearing helmets. Drivers under the age of 40, on the other hand, more often experienced head injuries, especially if helmets were not used. 


Other areas of the body that were most often affected included the spine, face and neck. Helmeted drivers of any age reported the fewest injuries to the spine. For more information on motorcycle accidents and how you can get the help you need to recover, please visit our web page.
