Rotator Cuff Tear with a Shoulder Dislocation
I’m Ed Smith, a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Sacramento. Everyone should take proper safety measures when riding a motorcycle. This means wearing a helmet to protect against head injuries and wearing proper safety gear to guard against road rash. Unfortunately, injuries can still happen with a motorcycle accident. One of the injuries that can occur is a rotator cuff tear. Furthermore, this injury can be accompanied by additional damages as well. One such injury is a shoulder dislocation.
A recent case report was published discussing a severe injury that occurred in a motorcycle accident. A young man was riding along a local road when he suddenly lost control of his bike. His motorcycle ran off the road and struck a ditch. When this happened, he was ejected from the seat and wound up hitting a tree. Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet, which reduces the chance of him sustaining a traumatic brain injury. Nevertheless, the accident was still severe. He realized that he was having significant trouble moving his right arm. Emergency services were called to the scene. He was quickly evaluated and taken to a local hospital.
