Motorcycle accidents can result in severe trauma to the biker. Not only are motorcycles more exposed than other motor vehicles, but they are also much smaller, putting the rider at an increased risk for traumatic harm.

Claimants need to document their injuries in Gwinnett County motorcycle accidents. A well-practiced attorney could use this documentation as evidence to help the injured person recover damages.

What are Aggravating Factories in Motorcycle Injuries?

Due to the exposure of a motorcycle, there is no protection for the rider. This often results in injuries that are exponentially greater than those in car accidents. Motorcyclists are required to wear helmets in Georgia, and failure to do so could increase their risk for serious harm.

The rider not only can be hit by a vehicle, but they can be ejected from the bike and hit something else such as the ground or another vehicle. The results of a wreck can be greater in terms of damages for Gwinnett County motorcycle riders, often resulting in catastrophic injuries.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Wrecks

Depending on the severity of the crash, a motorcyclist in Gwinnett County could suffer a range of injuries. Trauma to the head, neck, and spine, broken bones, cuts or lacerations, hematomas, bruising, road rash, and burns are all possible injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

If the brain has been severely damaged, that constitutes traumatic brain injury. Memory loss, fogginess, and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of a TBI.

Sometimes the brain is permanently impaired, resulting in long-lasting cognitive issues where the person is not able to function as they did before the wreck.

Broken Bones

It is very common for motorcyclists to break their bones when involved in a wreck. This can occur if they collide with a motor vehicle, or if they are thrown from their bike. In serious cases, a broken bone may cut a major vein or artery, and they could bleed to death.

If it is a major break requiring surgery, for example, if the bone is shattered and they need multiple screws and plates put in place, it could require significant time to heal. A lawyer could take that into consideration when calculating a claimant’s damages.

Why is it Important to Seek Medical Attention After a Motorcycle Crash?

Due to the increased risk of severe trauma in motorcycle wrecks, an injured rider should seek medical treatment immediately. Especially in catastrophic cases, it can make the difference between life and death.

It is also important for a person injured in a motorcycle crash to document their injuries. Pictures of the trauma, for example, can be used to prove the severity of an injury.

When somebody has been hurt, and they go to the doctor, the doctor documents the medical records. An injured claimant in Peachtree Corners should communicate with the medical professionals on the full extent of their injuries and keep their medical records for proof of damage following a motorcycle crash.

A Lawyer Could Seek Recovery for Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

The risk of suffering serious injuries in Gwinnett County motorcycle accidents is substantial. If you or a loved one was seriously harmed in a motorcycle crash, it is important that you seek immediate medical care and keep detailed documentation of your damages. With the help of an attorney, you could seek compensation from the person who caused your injuries. Call now to learn more about how a lawyer could help you.
