Motorcycle Accidents and Traumatic Injuries

Motorcycle Accidents and Traumatic Injuries

I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto Motorcycle Accident Lawyer. Motorcycle accidents have the potential to cause significant traumatic injuries. There are many different injuries that someone can sustain in a motorcycle accident. For instance, someone can get a femur fracture (diagnosed both clinically and on imaging), a fracture of the humerus, a pelvic fracture, and a host of other traumatic injuries or bone fractures. For this reason, people should always wear a helmet while riding on a motorcycle and keep their wits about them on the road. Although avoiding a motorcycle accident is not always possible, a recent study has created insight into what happens to patients who get into a crash.

Rising Rate of Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries in Sacramento

Rising Rate of Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries in Sacramento

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyer. Traffic fatalities went up in every category across the nation in 2016, including motorcycle deaths. There were 5,286 deaths of motorcyclists that year, an increase over the 5,029 fatalities the previous year, according to statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Because motorcycle riders are vulnerable due to their lack of protection, they are more apt to suffer injuries or be killed in a collision than those in passenger vehicles.
