Fighting For You

Soft tissue injuries can also debilitate motorcyclists

This blog has discussed how easy it is for a Houston, Texas, motorcyclist to suffer a serious brain or spine injury on account of a speeding driver or distracted driver who simply does not see, or does not have time to stop for, the motorcyclist.

These injuries are indeed very serious, and they are also all too common in motorcycle accidents largely because even a well-protected motorcyclist has almost no buffer from the force of a larger vehicle. If these bikers have been hurt by a negligent driver, they deserve compensation.

However, some motorcyclists suffer different types of injuries from accidents. While these injuries are thankfully the kind one can walk away from, the flip side is that it might seem like the motorcyclist was not seriously hurt and thus will not require as much compensation as the cyclist asks for.

For example, a motorcyclist may suffer one of several soft tissue injuries on account of an accident. These sorts of injuries, which affect one's muscles, tendons or ligaments, can leave a victim suffering severe and chronic pain. If the soft tissue injury is to one's neck, as in the case of whiplash, a victim may also suffer from mobility problems in the back and even difficulty with concentrating and remembering things.

Although perhaps not rising to the level of paralysis or brain dysfunction, these types of injuries are quite serious and can leave a person unable to work or carry on with their normal life activities. These victims also deserve full compensation for their injuries if their motorcycle accident was caused by a negligent driver.
