The Most Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
When it comes to riding a motorcycle, safety always needs to come first. While motorcycle safety gear is designed to protect every part of the body, some injuries are more likely than others. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a report detailing the most common injuries that someone might sustain in a motorcycle accident. Over an eight-year period, the CDC studied more than 1.2 million people who sought medical care following a motorcycle collision. The researchers went through the medical records of these individuals and divided the injuries by location on the body. The results will help everyone understand which body parts are most vulnerable to harm in a motorcycle accident.
