Head, neck and back injuries common after motorcycle accident

Texas residents who have been involved in a motorcycle accident know that the injuries suffered can have a significant impact on daily life. Head, neck and back injuries are all common after a motorcycle accident. The severity of the injuries suffered to these areas can result in a person experiencing either a relatively quick recovery or being forced to deal with life-long pain, paralysis and/or a number of other complications.

As motorcycle riders are not as protected in the same manner as the occupants of automobiles, the injuries suffered are likely to be immediately noticeable. However, some injuries make take a little more time to present themselves. This doesn't mean that the injury is any less serious than those that are promptly apparent. Common symptoms of back and neck injuries include:

  • Pain
  • Loss of muscle control
  • Loss of sensation
  • Swelling
  • Paralysis

If these or other symptoms are felt following a motorcycle accident, those injured should seek medical care as soon as possible. Waiting for treatment may cause more damage. Medical providers will be able to diagnose and attempt to treat head, neck and back injuries accordingly. In severe case, though, some damage may have permanent effects.

The physical, financial and emotional costs that head, neck and back injuries tend to create are typically quite severe and require a significant amount of time and money to treat. Those with permanent damage may need financial and medical support for the rest of their lives. Texas residents who have experienced injuries in a motorcycle accident caused by another's negligence can pursue legal remedies in an effort to seek compensation.
