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.

Some of the following symptoms can indicate an underlying condition that needs to be addressed.
Motorcycle accidents and crashes have some unique injuries that are rare to see in other vehicular collisions. For example, many people will require skin grafts if they did not wear chaps, a jacket, or a helmet. Second, to third-degree burns from friction with the asphalt is common and requires immediate attention like antibiotics, antiseptics, and skin removal.
