Motorcycle Accident-Arm SurgeryHello follow bikers—George Tait here with Utah Bike Law.

You know last few weeks on this videoswe've been talking about injuries that visit bikers when they'vebeen hurt by somebody else.

Long bones, the bones of yourfemur, your thigh bone, your tibia, your lower leg, your humerus,of theupper arm. Long bones take a heck of pile of a force when you're in a motorcycle crash. Smashing into thevehicle andbanging on the pavement. Often times these injuries require whatthey call ORIF, OpenReduction Internal Fasciation surgery. Plates and nails, steel plates, nails or screws that hold the platesthat bridge the fracture.

This an example of a humerus, shoulder joint right here going down the elbow. This long bone here,it canhave a plate on, it could be fractured here for example, have a steel plate on it, titanium usually,andsteelscrews and then you got to rehab thatOfCourse later on too because your muscles move around and soon and so forth. This as an example ofa humerus andin case that we went to trial on a couple of yearsago. You got to have exhibits to convince the jury thatpeople like handling stuff you know, I do and jury'sdo too. Soyou've gothave to have the exhibits,I've said it before and I'll sayit again that we're a trialfirm. We take the insurance company to trialwhen they're not willing to pay fair compensation tomotorcyclistthat got injuredin motorcycle crashes. Whether we go to trial or not, the insurancecompanies know that we will goto trial, hold their feet to the fire, that's the only way you're going to getfull value for your case. So during a crash, give us a call and give you advice whether you hire us or not.

So whatever the case, be careful out there. Take care
