Understanding The Connection Between Motorcycle Accidents And Head Injuries | Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyers

Unlike those who ride in cars, trucks, or buses, those who ride motorcycles are not surrounded by a protective cage and strapped in with a seat belt during an accident. While most of us can avoid a serious head injury or brain injury by buckling up, motorbike riders are more prone to traumatic brain injuries. In fact, brain injuries are the most common motorcycle accident injury, even for those wearing a bike helmet.

Wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle is the number one way to prevent a motorcycle accident head injury. Not only is wearing a motorcycle helmet the law in Washington State for both on-road and off-road bikers - it is also the best way to prevent serious injury, death, permanent disability, and long-term health problems.

Each year across the country, 50,000 people are injured in motorcycle accidents and an estimated 3,000 people die. Wearing a helmet reduces the risk of serious injury or death by a very significant 40 percent. Head injuries and spine injuries can lead to memory problems, paralysis or partial paralysis, cognitive issues, behavioral problems, personality changes, nerve damage, trouble speaking, trouble hearing, trouble concentrating, and a bevy of other long-term health issues.

Motorcycle accident head injuries often have serious, expensive, and ongoing consequences. Those suffering from motorcycle brain damage may have trouble returning to work, supporting their families, or returning to their most loved hobbies. In addition, those suffering from serious traumatic brain injuries may be home care, ongoing therapy, special equipment, or even 24-hour care.
