Two motorcycle riders suffered critical injuries in a motorcycle accident on U.S. 27 near Broward recently. Accident investigators with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office say the accident occurred late in the evening on February 2 on U.S. 27 several miles north of the intersection with Interstate 75. County Sheriffs said one rider’s leg was severed in the accident and that he was airlifted to Broward General Medical Center for treatment. The other rider involved in the accident also suffered critical but undisclosed injuries and was transported by ambulance to Broward General. The Florida Highway Patrol closed U.S. 27 during the accident investigation and details about the accident were not released.
The devastation felt by accident victims who lose a limb cannot be overstated. Without a leg, this motorcycle accident victim may not be able to enjoy favorite activities, earn a living and provide for his family. He is also at elevated risk for depression, dangerous infection and other serious health risks. The man will undoubtedly have diminished quality of life, and he faces months of painful and expensive physical rehabilitation regimens. The mental and financial anguish of medical bills that quickly climb into the hundreds of thousands of dollars compounds the considerable pain and suffering from his physical injuries.
