If someone else’s negligence has caused you to suffer an injury in a motorcycle crash, you need help. You need a doctor to diagnose and treat your injuries and you need an attorney who will fight hard for your fair recovery.
Depending on the type and severity of your injury, you may have to be hospitalized and receive long-term therapy, while accumulating massive medical bills. Some riders suffer symptoms of their injuries for the rest of their lives. It is important that you understand the extent of your injuries and your prognosis before you settle a motorcycle accident claim. Below are descriptions of some common injuries suffered in Wisconsin motorcycle accidents.
Brain and Head Injuries
- Skull fractures. When a motorcyclist is struck by another car or truck, chances are that the rider is going to hit his head on either the pavement or the other vehicle. There is a strong chance that the rider could suffer a skull fracture.
- Traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injury is a broad term that is used to describe most brain injuries. A traumatic brain injury may be mild or severe.
Spinal Cord Injuries
- Incomplete spinal cord injuries. Not all incomplete spinal cord injuries are the same. Riders who suffer from one of these types of incomplete spinal cord injuries may retain some sensory or motor function.
- Complete spinal cord injuries. Complete spinal cord injuries are currently irreversible. People who suffer these types of injuries in bike crashes will likely be paralyzed.
- Spinal stenosis. Pain, numbness and weakness can all result from spinal stenosis. This condition occurs when the spinal canal is narrowed, and pressure is put on the nerves.
