Understanding The Types Of Injuries

Collisions between motor vehicles and motorcycles can cause many types of injuries, including:

  • Head injuries: The force of the impact between car and motorcycle usually throws riders off their bikes, sometimes causing traumatic brain injuries (TBI). In many cases, a TBI can occur even if the rider is wearing a helmet and their skull is not broken or cracked. That’s because the relatively “soft” brain can hit inside the “hard” skull so violently after impact, it causes traumatic brain injury.
  • Biker’s arm: When riders fall off their bikes, they naturally extend their arms to break their falls. In high-speed collisions, there is simply too much force. As a result, victims often sustain permanent nerve damage to their arms. The same is true for legs.
  • Internal injuries: These same forces can cause internal damage to organs.  Most first responders primarily focus on external trauma wounds.  Internal bleeding may go unchecked for several minutes or even much longer.

In Florida, compensation for these and other injuries usually includes compensation for economic losses, such as medical bills and lost wages, and for noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Punitive damages may be available as well, in some cases.
