California motorcyclists are aware of the dangers that go hand-in-hand with riding. However, if you get into an accident, you could find yourself facing potential injuries you may not have considered. The Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr. is here to provide useful information to you, such as top injuries that motorcycle crashes result in.

Motorcycle crashes can have a heavy impact on your body for the simple fact that you aren't anywhere near as covered as you would be in a traditional passenger vehicle. Because of the openness of a motorcylce, your body often takes the brunt of the impact. This is why broken bones are a top common injury. This includes all extremities, especially the legs. Spinal injuries are also common, whether it's a strain or break.

The open access to elements can also result in some unique injuries, like road rash, which is caused when your skin is run across the pavement and gets "burned", or torn up. Actual burns may also occur, as there isn't anything to protect you from coming into contact with open flames at the crash site. Due to exposure, injuries to the face and eye area are more common with motorcyclists than they are with drivers of covered vehicles, as well.

As you can see, injuries from motorcycle crashes can vary in severity, location, and type. However, they're almost always more severe than injuries that are obtained during a crash if you're inside a covered vehicle, and almost always result from the amount of exposure your body has to the outside elements.
