Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries for the motorcycle driver and any passengers on the bike. Often, motorcycle accident injuries are rather obvious, such as major lacerations or broken bones. However, there are times when internal injuries occur as a result of a motorcycle collision, but the signs and symptoms are not immediately obvious. Here, we want to discuss internal injuries that can occur after a motorcycle accident as well as the importance of seeking immediate medical assistance when these collisions happen.
When working to understand the most common types of internal injuries after a motorcycle accident in Colorado, we want to look at blunt trauma, penetrating trauma, and decelerating trauma.
Any of these types of traumas can result in significant internal bleeding, particularly when they occur to the head, liver, explain, heart, arteries, or major veins. Blunt, penetrating, and decelerating trauma can occur in high-speed motorcycle accidents as well as low-speed collisions.
If you or somebody you love has been involved in a motorcycle accident in Colorado, you need to seek medical care immediately. Please understand that the signs and symptoms of some motorcycle accident injuries, including internal injuries, may not appear until hours or days after the collision occurs. Waiting to seek medical care until signs and symptoms arise could result in long-lasting internal damage. Go to the doctor or hospital immediately after a crash so an evaluation can be conducted.
