Broken Bones: A Common Result of South Dakota Motorcycle Wrecks

Most motorcycle wrecks occur as the result of another driver, who may not see or respect the rights of the motorcyclist. The South Dakota motorcycle accidents caused by such drivers can be catastrophic, often resulting in serious injuries and even loss of life.

Some of the most common, but still most serious, types of injury sustained in these wrecks are broken bones. Painful and costly, this type of injury inflicts many victims of dangerous crashes. The areas of the body most susceptible to broken bones include:

  • Foot
  • Ankle
  • Leg
  • Hip
  • Ribs
  • Wrist
  • Arm
  • Collarbone
  • Back
  • Neck

Broken bones can be very serious, especially broken backs and necks. At the very least, a broken bone suffered in a South Dakota motorcycle wreck requires X-rays and possibly surgery, totaling medical bills in the thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.

If you have suffered an injury in a South Dakota motorcycle crash that was not your fault, you should not have to pay for the costs associated with the consequences of the wreck. Instead, you may be able to recover damages from your insurance company or that of the other driver.
