New Jersey Lawyers for Internal Organ Damage and Bleeding from Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists love their open-air rides, but two disturbing facts cast a shadow over this exhilarating mode of travel. If you are involved in an accident while operating a motorcycle, you have a far greater chance of sustaining severe injuries and dying, and the costs for your medical treatment will be approximately six times higher than if you had been driving a car or truck at the time of your collision.
When you’ve been injured in a crash that was someone else’s fault while you’re riding your motorcycle, you may wonder how you’ll ever manage to pay that growing stack of medical bills, especially if your injuries have prevented you from working. And your injuries may indeed be severe if they include organ damage or internal bleeding.
One way to help yourself is to call the New Jersey motorcycle accident attorneys of Brach Eichler Injury Lawyers. We can help you pursue the compensation you deserve from the at-fault driver. Let us take on the responsibility for your claim or lawsuit so you can focus on healing from your injuries. Call us today at (973) 364-8300.

How Does This Happen?
If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be wondering why your helmet and other protective gear didn’t prevent you from bleeding excessively and possibly sustaining internal organ damage. Helmets are required in New Jersey, which is a plus, especially where head injuries are concerned. Studies show that in up 41 percent of cases, helmets can prevent fatalities, depending on whether you are the driver or a passenger. However that statistic does not rule out the possibility of sustaining a serious brain or other organ injury and/or excessive bleeding.
As far as other protective gear is concerned, wearing a heavy-duty tight-fitting leather jacket while riding to protect your body’s midsection is a good idea. Leather Jackets can be useful in crashes that occur when traveling at 35 miles per hour or less, but high-impact crashes severely reduce the amount of protection such a jacket can provide for your body’s midsection.
Jackets cover the portion of the body that houses most of our major internal organs, blood vessels, and arteries. This includes the heart, lungs, stomach, liver, intestines, spleen, pancreas, bladder, kidneys, and portions of the skeletal, skin, and reproductive systems. So, even though you were driving cautiously and possibly even wearing protective gear when you got into a crash with another driver, you may have still incurred serious bodily injury.

What Are the After Effects of External Bleeding Following a Motorcycle Accident?
Hopefully, you received immediate medical attention after your accident. A trained medical professional can assess your injuries and arrange additional care in a hospital setting if necessary. However, what appears to be a minor external wound can be anything but.
For example, if you are bleeding because your skin was punctured by broken glass or jagged vehicle parts or because you fell off of your bike and onto the hard pavement, remember that the amount of visible blood does not always indicate the seriousness of the wound. In addition to the pain, bleeding from a wound can cause ongoing medical problems and even death if it is not stopped.
- You can go into hypovolemic shock if your body rapidly loses blood. This can affect the heart’s ability to pump blood to the tissues and other organs and may result in death if the bleeding is not stopped.
- If a major organ, the kidney, for example, is damaged due to rapid blood loss, it may not be able to function properly, which can result in the need for ongoing medical monitoring.
- Those taking blood-thinning medications are at extremely high risk for organ damage and other serious medical issues because they lose blood faster than those not on a blood thinner.
What Are the Effects of Internal Bleeding and Organ Damage?
If you sustained an injury to one or more of your internal organs in a motorcycle accident, you could be facing catastrophic medical expenses long term or even for your lifetime. At first, you might not even realize that one or more of your major organs was severely damaged in your accident because you can’t see it with the naked eye. Unseen internal bleeding can occur as well. That is why you need immediate medical care after the collision. Once a physician attends to your obvious issues, they will perform a complete examination to determine the presence of internal bleeding and/or organ damage.
Laboratory tests, x-rays, and scans will enable your doctor to diagnose whether internal bleeding and/or organ damage occurred. The diagnostic results may indicate the need for blood transfusions, surgery, and/or rehabilitation services. Organs that may sustain injury in a motorcycle accident include the:
- Urinary bladder
