Hidden Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents
Many people who have had a Motorcycle accident in Fort Lauderdale / Broward / Plantation or elsewhere in South Florida may not realize how hurt they really are in the time immediately after the accident. You may not feel some of the symptoms for days and even months after the accident occurred.
For instance, if your bike were struck from behind, a typical injury could be whiplash (when your neck and spinal cord are shaken abnormally). Hard impacts can cause bleeding, even partial organ failure, and you may not feel anything at the scene. This is not meant to frighten you but rather it is something riders may not be aware of. Be sure to always get medical care or at least get checked out just to be safe after any motorcycle or scooter accident.
