Motorcycle Accidents or Crashes in Houston, TX

When you ride a motorcycle, there is an inherent risk of more serious injury than if you drive a car. Without metal to take the force for you, the laws of physics dictate you will be the recipient of leftover force during the crash. Even when you wear full protective equipment like a helmet and leather gear, there is a strong chance you will be injured.

Following a motorcycle accident or crash in Houston, TX, come see us at Ascent Emergency Care for immediate treatment. Our specialists are skilled at treating a broad range of injuries, including burns, severe skin scrapes, broken bones, concussions, and much more.

When Should I Get Care?

Many people don’t realize they need care after an accident, particularly if they can get up and walk away. Unfortunately, there are many injuries that can remain hidden until a couple of days later, when you might experience intense pain or difficulty doing basic activities.

Some of the following symptoms can indicate an underlying condition that needs to be addressed.

  • Blurred vision or difficulty focusing on objects
  • Memory problems
  • Trouble moving an arm or leg
  • Tingling or numbness in your limbs
  • Intense localized pain
