No matter how safely and defensively a motorcyclist rides, there may always be a car or truck that won’t see them and will either collide with the biker or cause the motorcycle to swerve out of the way and crash.

If you have suffered either a fractured bone or a broken bone after a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t just take the first settlement the insurance company offers you for your medical expenses. Regardless of the severity of your injury, you may end up needing long-term care, and you may be entitled to other forms of compensation.

Whatever the circumstances of your motorcycle accident, a Salt Lake City motorcycle accident broken bone lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you to both build your case and pursue the compensation you are owed.


Common Motorcycle Crash Fractured Bones

Motorcycles are beloved for the freedom they offer, but without seat belts, airbags, or a protective metal shell around you, it’s hard to escape a motorcycle crash without an injury. In addition to road rash, even a minor wreck can leave you with one or more of the following:

  • Scapula fracture (shoulder blade)
  • Broken foot
  • Broken rib
  • Broken thigh bone
  • Fractured hip
  • Fractured tibia, femur or fibula
  • Fractured or broken arm
  • Fractured wrist
  • Fractured sacrum
  • Temporal bone fracture
  • Broken collarbone


Signs of a Broken Bone

Broken bones usually must be diagnosed with an X-ray. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, talk to your doctor immediately, as you may have a broken or fractured bone:

  • Bruised or swollen skin
  • Change in appearance of the limb or body part
  • Difficulty or pain when moving the body part
  • A grinding or cracking sound during motion


Lasting Damage and Ongoing Expenses

Fractures and breaks not cared for properly can result in range of motion reduction, decreased strength, and deformity. In addition to long-lasting pain and arthritis down the road, it’s vital to look out for any sign of infection, numbness, or swelling.

Taking a quick insurance settlement because you just want the whole thing to be over with can leave you with additional bills down the line. By working with one of our attorneys, we can ensure that your claim is valued correctly and takes into account everything you’ve been through.
