Motorcycle riders who wear a helmet may protect their head from significant injury. However, with or without a helmet, the reality is that a motorcycle accident may result in some type of head trauma.
If you were injured because of someone else’s negligence, compensation for your injuries may be available. To learn how you can protect your legal rights after a motorcycle accident, contact aMonongaliaCountypersonal injury attorney today.
Some of the more common types of head injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident include:
- skull fracture;
- bruising or bleeding on the brain; and
- traumatic brain injury.
Even mild injuries can cause significant pain and disturbances with vision, seizures, amnesia, and even changes in personality may occur with a head injury.
While some types of head injuries are treatable, others require long-term medical care. Some head trauma may even result in permanent disability or other complications that completely alter an individual’s life.
Trauma to the head is just one of the common injuries that riders may suffer in a motorcycle accident. To learn more about the types of damages to which you may be entitled for your injuries, it would be best to seek legal counsel.
