What Traumatic Brain Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents Can Happen to Me?


According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Through the years, motorcycle safety technology has improved.

Scientific journals and studies show that wearing a DOT-approved helmet significantly reduces motorcycle accident head injury claims. (See also, Journal of Epidemiology).

Even with the loudest pipes, verbal and non-verbal communication, motorcycle riders are in constant danger of being killed or severely injured in a motorcyclist crash. By contrast, occupants in a passenger car are far better protected inside their metal cocoons during an impact or collision.

That’s why you can see both young and old riders wearing a helmet and other protective gear to protect the full extent of their mortality. But that doesn’t free them from roadway danger. If another driver doesn’t follow the traffic signs and goes over the speed limit, they can crash with your bike, causing head injuries, including a mild traumatic brain injury.

The primary issue with head injuries is a traumatic brain injury (or TBI), which directly jeopardizes your motor functions. That makes you lose control of your body, including bowels. The medical treatments you need to take to heal from brain injuries are not inexpensive, so you have to invest a lot of money into paying your hospital bills.

The best you can do in those situations is to ask for help, and we are here to help you. We are the Ehline Law Firm. We specialize in personal injury trials. We are the best brain injury lawyers you can choose if you want to seek legal action to receive full and fair compensation for your accident.

Getting that compensation is crucial to pay for your treatment, so don’t hesitate to call us or come to our office to set an appointment and start the legal process.

What Are Some Examples of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

According to the U.S Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), motorcyclist accidents represent 14 percent of motor vehicle deaths since they can develop into more severe and dangerous health issues.

If you hit your head without wearing a helmet, you may experience loss of consciousness, headache, and even loss of memory. Those are signs of brain damage, so it’s crucial to go to a hospital and get yourself checked to determine the severity of the injury.

The health issues we mentioned before are just some symptoms of a severe brain injury, so getting a doctor’s appointment is a top priority after going through car crashes or a motorcycle accident. To help you understand this better, here are some of the most common traumatic brain injuries you can get in motor vehicles crashes:

There are more health issues caused by getting a severe traumatic brain injury, but everything depends on the severity of the accident and if you got a concussion. However, those issues are more prone to happen if you don’t wear a motorcycle helmet. So make sure you are always wearing one to avoid any risk that could turn out to permanent disability or death.

What Is the Most Common Cause of Traumatic Brain Injury?

Many things can produce traumatic brain injuries, but the primary reason they happen is getting a head injury. Head injuries tend to happen due to a motorcycle accident since many motorcyclists don’t wear helmets. So nothing protects them from hitting their heads. Falls and sports injuries can also cause trauma to the brain, resulting in a head injury.

The best you can do to reduce the risk of getting brain injuries is wearing a helmet and following National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards regarding motorcyclists and riders in general.

Suffering a mild or significant brain injury may be detrimental for you and jeopardize your motor functions for the rest of your life. That causes permanent disability and other head injury-related issues, so it’s crucial to do what we can to make our streets safer.

Regardless of that, even helmeted motorcyclists are in danger of suffering an accident, so it’s important to be ready to pay for medical care treatments that help you or a loved one increase your chances of recovery.

Hiring California brain injury legal services put you and your family in the hands of a qualified attorney. This is a professional who rides bikes, who can get you the compensation you need to pay for any accident that could occur.

What to Do If You Go Through a Motorcycle Accident

If you are a victim of a motorcycle accident, the first thing you should do is go to a hospital to check if you have any personal injury you should concern about. This remains true if you failed to wear your helmet.

If you turn out to suffer from a trauma to the brain, you need to do what you can to invest in the best medical treatment you can take.

Not all people who suffered from a severe head injury can fully recover from the accident. So you should do everything in your hands to increase your chances of recovery.

Fortunately, the law protects you from those situations since getting the proper treatment to recover from a motorcycle accident is not inexpensive. Some moderate and mild brain injuries even need surgery, which increases the financial resources you need to pay for everything.

However, you don’t need to worry about that since you can hire a Los Angeles brain injury attorney.

Motorcycle Crash Tips

An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure. Remember to always wear a helmet to protect yourself from brain injuries caused by other motorcyclists or car drivers that are being irresponsible while driving. Your safety is a priority riding among other vehicles.

If the injured person survives a crash after being thrown they’ll probably need money for long terms costs covering long-term care and transportation to and from your doctor.

Never hesitate to call us to get the amount of money you seek to cover these impairments as you heal. Bad motor vehicle accidents are our specialty. We can help you recover money for moderate traumatic brain injuries, to life-threatening injuries. Unlike other lawyers, we will make progress right away on your behalf with investigations and evidence gathering.

Loose Lips Sink Ships

Injured motorcyclists should never speak to the insurance company after motorcycle crashes. Both non-helmeted and helmeted riders will require compensation from that at-fault party.

This is what motorcycle accident victims need to pay for your treatment, surgery, and any other thing you require to receive expensive, extensive treatment for your traumatic brain injuries (subdural hematoma, moderate TBI, wrongful death, etc.).

The coma patient, of injured person’s ability to pay their bills, will be hindered by lost wages, contracts, and time off work. The longer you wait to hire a motorcycle lawyer, the harder it will be to recover damages and get your case settled.

A patient / motorcyclist can avoid complications by getting an MRI or CT scan. Passengers and riders can protect their rights by contacting a contingency fee lawyer right away about their concussions or brain swelling rehabilitation protection.

We will help these wounded occupants significantly when they need support most over their damages claim (contusions, internal bleeding, infection, seizures, mortality, and morbidity).

Parties with liability will be held to account on behalf of survivors and patients left behind with mental / behavioral, speech, and other physical impairments requiring hospitalization till you or your loved one is stabilized.

Motorcycles are inherently dangerous to ride when compared to passenger cars. As we mentioned before, motorcyclists are sometimes involved in vehicle-related accidents with serious injuries.
