According to sources, per-crash injury expenses of a
motorcycle crash are about 12.5 times greater than accidents involving other vehicles such
as trucks and passenger cars. Additionally, other sources state that about
62% of motorcycle accidents result in lost quality of life for victims
involved. As a result, many motorcycle accident victims face lifetimes
of medical costs.
What Are the Median Hospital Costs for Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
To determine motorcycle hospital expenses for various types of injuries,
the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted comprehensive
studies. After analyzing the results, the NHTSA determined that the median
hospital expenses for the injuries caused in motorcycle crashes include
Minor Facial/Head Injuries: $4,200
Moderate Facial/Head Injuries: $11,300
Serious Facial/Head Injuries: $28,200
Severe Facial/Head Injuries: $36,500
Critical Facial/Head Injuries: $81,163
Mild/Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries: $10,680
Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries: $35,468
Isolated, single lower extremity injuries: $23,000
Multiple lower extremity injuries: $43,000
Lower extremity injury in combination with other injuries: $62,000
While these are the medians for some of the most common injuries, some
motorcycle crash victims face even more expensive fines if they suffer
spinal cord injuries, which can cost up to $4.5 million.
Because these types of injuries can be extremely costly, it is important
that motorcycle accident victims retain experienced legal representation
right away. A skilled lawyer can help a motorcyclist pursue financial
compensation to pay for any medical expenses, physical pain, emotional
damages, and lost wages they may have suffered as a result of the crash.
