Omaha Nebraska Motorcycle Injuries
Many motor vehicle accidents with motorcycles occur in Nebraska each year. They are a leading cause of serious injury or death. A major contributing cause of motorcycle collisions is driver inattention and negligence. When other drivers are careless and fail to maintain a proper lookout, they may not see a motorcycle rider. As a rider, you are vulnerable and need to be extra careful to avoid traffic hazards. You should also wear protective gear. The most important protective gear is your helmet. Serious brain injuries can result when your head hits another vehicle or the pavement. Protective gear can also include a good jacket and protection for your legs.
Types Of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
- Head Injuries – Head and brain injuries can be fatal and can have devastating effects even if you survive.
- Broken Bones – Broken bones often occur in motorcycle accidents. Recovery can be long and painful and permanent disabilities are possible.
- Road Rash – Caused by abrasion from the rough road surface.
- Spinal Injuries – An injury to your spine can be a disabling and life-changing event. Even a less serious back injury may require physical therapy or chiropractic treatment.
