Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycles provide virtually no protection to riders. Motorcycles do not have airbags, seatbelts, or a steel frame surrounding the occupants like other motor vehicles do. Therefore, it is common for even low speed Nevada motorcycle accidents to result in serious injuries or death. It is crucial that all riders obey Nevada law by wearing a helmet while practicing safe motorcycle riding habits to reduce their chances of suffering a life-changing injury.

Some of the most common and devastating injuries suffered in Las Vegas motorcycle accidents involve head trauma and traumatic brain injuries. Even riders who wear a helmet are prone to suffering devastating head injuries if their head comes into contact with their motorcycle, another vehicle, or the roadway during a crash. Symptoms of these types of injuries range from headaches and nausea to complete changes in personality and loss of mental and physical abilities that could lead to permanent disabilities.

Victims of motorcycle accidents are also prone to suffering back and spinal cord injuries. Anytime the back is twisted, impacted, or crushed in a crash, there is the potential for the spinal cord to become damaged. In such cases, the victim may suffer from numbness or paralysis of the body below the site of the trauma.

Victims of Las Vegas motorcycle crashes may suffer broken bones, limb amputations, and lacerations. Such injuries can result in costly surgical procedures or may need rehabilitative treatments over a long period of time.
