Motorcycle accidents and soft tissue injuries

Previous posts here have often discussed how motorcycle accidents in the Reno, Nevada, area can leave a rider suffering for the rest of his or her life with catastrophic brain or spinal cord injuries, making it clear that the rider has been seriously and permanently hurt. As such, if another motorist was at fault for the motorcyclist's injuries, it is fairly evident that the other motorist owes compensation to the rider.

While, thankfully, not all motorcycle accidents end with paralysis or brain damage, many motorcyclists suffer other types of serious injuries that may not be so evident to the general public. To the motorcyclist, however, the injury could mean not being able to return to work for a long time, if at all.

For example, as with other types of vehicle accidents, a motorcyclist may experience some form of soft tissue injury, including whiplash. A soft tissue injury is damage to a person's tendons, ligaments or muscles. While these are not plainly visible, they can leave a person dealing with chronic and severe pain.

In some cases, a soft tissue injury may limit a person's ability to move or even leave the person with problems with things like remembering things or focusing on a task. These sorts of injuries are serious, and just because a motorcyclist has the ability to walk away from a crash it doesn't mean that he or she won't need compensation for things like medical bills and lost wages. Moreover, the pain and suffering one must endure because of a soft tissue injury also warrants monetary compensation.
