About Leg Injuries and Ohio Motorcycle Accidents
Leg injuries can range in severity. In a less serious case, a rider or passenger may sustain bruises, cuts and scrapes or may have to deal with temporary swelling and pain. Unfortunately, leg injuries in motorcycle crashes typically are more serious. Victims often cope with broken bones and fractures. Bones in the leg that are susceptible to breaking or fracturing include the femur (thigh bone), the fibula and tibia (below the knee). Riders also may sustain damage to their feet and deal with other serious injuries, including road rash.
In some cases, a rider or passenger may have to undergo amputation of a limb. Our attorneys are prepared to show the full impact of the injury on your life. You may have to give up a job or everyday activities you may have taken for granted before the accident.
About Knee Injuries and Ohio Motorcycle Accidents
A knee injury may require surgery as well as long-term physical therapy. In some cases, a victim may need a knee replacement. This type of injury is difficult to live with and may lead to high medical expenses, lost time from work, and pain and suffering, in addition to other losses. Some knee problems, such as arthritis, could develop months or years after an accident.
The following are some common knee injuries:
- Bursitis (inflammation of bursa)
- Cartilage injuries
