Were you, a friend or loved-one suffer a shoulder injury in a motorcycle accident, either as a a rider or a passenger in Miami? If so, the Perazzo Law Firm shares valuable insight for dealing with shoulder injuries in motorcycle accidents. Shoulder injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident can affect the driver as well as passengers. Even though helmets prevent riders and passengers from suffering severe head injury, many times they do not fully protect motorcycle accident victims from suffering shoulder injuries, especially when there is a collision that takes place at high speeds or involves larger vehicles such as SUVs and trucks. A motorcycle accident victim may be propelled several feet and land on his/her shoulder. A head-on collision can cause the rider to fly forward and put a lot of pressure on the upper body as a result of into the oncoming car's windshield. When this happens, the upper body, especially the shoulder absorbs most of the impact. This can sometimes lead to a broken shoulder, collarbone, or clavicle. A broken shoulder, collarbone or clavicle from a motorcycle accident can have a serious impact on the accident victim's physical well-being as most often the injury will require medical attention that can include surgery and rehabilitation. Shoulder injury can occur when the tendons that cover the shoulder joint are torn or overstretched as a result of the impact from a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle accidents that lead to a broken shoulder can involve one or both of the two bones located in the shoulder; the scapula or the humerus. These bones connect to the collar bone, which can most often suffer a break as a result of severe impact in a car accident.
