Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
Motorcycle accidents are unfortunately very common, and can often result in serious injuries. In Missouri, some of the most common injuries that occur as a result of motorcycle crashes include whiplash, head and neck injuries, back injuries, and broken bones.
Whiplash is a common neck injury that is the result of the head being jerked forward and backward during a collision. These injuries can be very painful. Head and neck injuries can also occur if the head hits something during the crash. Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to these accidents, especially if they are ejected. Back injuries are also common in motorcycle accidents and can range from minor to severe. Broken bones are also a possibility in any motorcycle accident, depending on the force of the impact.
