Your heart and lungs are protected in your chest. However, if you are thrown from your bike or if your motorcycle, a car, or another large object lands on top of you, then the trauma to your chest could impact these important organs and could endanger your life.
Types of Chest Injuries That May Occur From a Motorcycle Crash
Some of the chest injuries that could result from a motorcycle crash include:
- Lacerated lungs.
- Fractured ribs or sternum.
- Excess fluid in the heart.
- Rupture of the aorta.
The treatment of these injuries is going to depend on the specific injury suffered and your overall health. Hospitalization, surgery, and other treatments may be essential to help prevent permanent complications or death from your motorcycle accident injury. It is important to get immediate medical attention and to follow the recommendations of your medical team.
Protect Your Recovery After a Chest Injury
You may feel like there is little that you can do to protect your future from your hospital bed. All of your energy is going into your physical recovery and that is as it should be. Your physical recovery should be your top priority. Thus, we encourage you to follow your doctor’s orders and to comply with the recommended treatment plan.
While you recover, however, it is important to remember that your time to take legal action is limited. You need to take action to make sure that your recovery of past, current, and future damages such as medical expenses, lost income, miscellaneous costs, and pain and suffering are compensated. But you don’t need to be the one to deal with the day-to-day stress of protecting your financial recovery. Instead, you have the right to hire an attorney to represent you and to fight hard for your interests.
