Common injuries suffered in an Illinois motorcycle accident

Riding a motorcycle on the roads of Illinois is exhilarating. It is also a dangerous venture that not everyone is fit to explore. You need to be extra cautious when operating a motorcycle for the sheer fact that there is no protection around your body like when you drive a car. Here are some common injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents.

Road rash is one of the most common injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents. When a motorcycle is involved in a crash, the operator will likely be thrown from the vehicle onto the road. Victims can skid across the road, causing road rash to the body, even if the victim was wearing the proper protective clothing.

The leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents is that of head injuries. Head injuries, or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), can happen to accident victims even if they were wearing a helmet. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) supports motorcycle helmet laws across the country because the DOT states that wearing a helmet can reduce deaths via motorcycle accidents by 29 to 35 percent.

Almost every motorcycle accident forces the bike to fall over since it cannot stand up on its own. Because of this, many riders will suffer broken bones when involved in an accident. The most common broken bones are in the arms, as the riders stretch out their arms to brace themselves for the fall from the bike onto the road. Other areas that commonly suffer broken bones are the legs, pelvis and shoulders.
