Traumatic Brain Injuries
Cases of Traumatic Brain Injuries: Motorcycle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle can be an enjoyable and freeing experience. Unfortunately, it also puts a rider at a much-increased risk for very serious injury should an accident occur. One of the most devastating injuries that one can sustain in the impact of a motorcycle crash is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Wearing a helmet is always wise, but even this safety measure cannot fully protect a biker. When the head goes through any serious trauma, such as can be experienced in a roadway incident, the brain actually moves with impact and strikes the skull. While some injuries can be more minor, many are potentially life threatening. After receiving immediate medical care, you should be in touch with a Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer for important help.
Brain injuries can be very frightening, as we all understand the importance of the brain in most all physical and psychological functions. Sometimes TBI symptoms appear immediately, but in many cases they are slow to develop and can have lingering or permanent consequences. Even a more minor brain injury can lead to personality changes, memory loss and confusion. More severe damage can cause:
- Vision or hearing problems
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Reduced motor skills and cognitive function
- Severe headaches
- Problems with concentration
- Reduction in speech capabilities
- Reduction in body control
- Wrongful death
Careless and distracted drivers who cause motorcycle accidents must be held accountable for their actions and fair settlements and judgments must be pursued.
