As discussed on the “Motorcycle Crashes Involving Motorcyclist Ejections” page, crashes involving ejections often lead to serious injuries. As discussed, there are many reasons for this, including that most ejections occur when the bike is traveling at significant or higher speeds. Among the common types of injuries sustained during such ejections are various blunt force trauma injuries to the torso and head. Traumatic injuries to these areas often led to serious injuries, and in many cases life-threatening injuries.

The page mentioned above also discusses ways to avoid motorcycle accidents that can lead to the rider being ejected. As well, there are ways to mitigate injuries sustained during an ejection, should an ejection occur.
