What are signs of life threatening injuries following a motorcycle accident?

Traveling at high speeds on crowded highways can be dangerous enough, but if you're on two wheels- when most everyone else is on four- you're at a huge disadvantage. Motorcyclists have no seat-belts, no airbags and are often riding alongside motorists who are distracted. When the unexpected happens, bikers will take the brunt of it. Head, neck and spinal injuries can be the hardest to assess and treat. They are also potentially the most life-threatening. Attorney Greg Oldham, warns after a motorcycle accident, you need to be on the look out for: Loss of sensation Erratic muscle movements tingling or prickling feeling in your extremities Uncontrollable bowel movements. If you notice any of these symptoms, make sure that you are out of harm's way, then find a place to lay down in a straight, stable position. Medical attention is a must, and legal counsel may be as well. Call Oldham and Smith Attorney's at Law- at 352-292-1620. They're experts in the field and will fight to get you everything you deserve.
