Not Wearing a Helmet When in a Seattle Bicycle Crash Could Be a Grave Mistake

Seattle is one of the best places in which to view from a bicycle. Because we have so many bikers sharing the road with motorists, serious accidents occur frequently. Unfortunately, not everyone wears a helmet, which can make getting into a Seattle bicycle crash a life-changing event.

Concussions

Concussions occur when the brain is shaken in the head. Bicyclists often experience them when their heads hit the ground or other objects. Helmets can absorb the brunt of the blow, but they can’t prevent the trauma from happening completely. Not wearing a helmet could result in even more injuries, such as lacerations on the head and broken bones in the skull.

Brain Injury

A helmet acts as a barrier between your head and the rest of the world. It absorbs a lot of the shock of a collision. When you’re not wearing a helmet and your head crashes into another object, you could experience damage to your brain, which could result in a variety of problems that can affect the way you talk, move, and live your daily life.

Death

Your brain is vulnerable, and when you don’t put a helmet on your head while biking, you leave it exposed to anything. Your skull is only so strong, and when you are in an accident in which your head is affected, you could receive a brain injury so severe you can’t pull through.
