Davie motorcycle accidents can be among the most devastating types of Davie traffic accidents you can be involved in. The difference in size and force between a passenger vehicle or truck and a motorcycle is substantial. This means that in any collision involving a motorcycle, it is likely that the motorcycle and rider will sustain more serious damage. In addition, motorcyclists are far less protected in the event of a collision when compared with truck drivers and passenger car. While most traditional vehicles protect passengers with layers of glass, plastic, metal, there is often little or nothing between the motorcyclist and the road.
One of the most common injuries sustained in Davie motorcycle accidents are head injuries. When a Davie car accident involving a motorcycle occurs, the motorcyclist is often thrown from the motorcycle or dragged along for some time. When the head comes into contact with pavement or the roadway, serious injury will result, especially if the motorcyclist is not wearing a helmet or if the helmet becomes dislodged during the accident. Davie head injuries resulting motorcycle accidents are often fatal or leave permanent injury.
There many types of head injuries that can occur in a motorcycle collision. For example, the brain can become swollen, bruised, or can bleed inside the skull. When this happens, it can result in fatalities or serious injuries as brain tissue is damaged or destroyed. Most often, this type of injury happens when the head strikes a hard surface during a Davie motorcycle crash. When this occurs, the brain ricochets off the inside of the hard skull, causing serious injury.
Another common type of injury occurs when the skull is actually cracked or fractured during a Davie motorcycle collision. Most often, this occurs when the motorcyclist is not wearing a helmet. When the skull was fractured, the brain inside is also damaged, leading to swelling and other injuries. Surgery is often required as is an extensive rehabilitation and recovery time. Wearing a helmet can help prevent the more serious types of brain injuries that can occur with a motorcycle accident. Although not required by law in every state, motorcycle helmets save lives and should always be used by motorcyclists.
A less common but equally devastating type of Davie brain injury occurs when the skull is penetrated by an object during a Davie traffic accident. This can occur if the motorcyclist is thrown from the motorcycle and an object traveling at a high speed becomes impaled in the skull. When this occurs, surgeons often have to carefully remove the object in order to allow the brain to heal. In many cases, however, these types of accidents can prove fatal as they damage large portions of the brain.
