Brain Injuries Caused By Motorcycle Accidents

Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorneys

Motorcycle accidents are notorious for being one of the most dangerous, if not the most dangerous, type of traffic collision on American highways. Riders are thrown from their vehicles at even slow speeds and are nearly guaranteed to suffer some sort of bodily injury. A properly-fitted helmet is always necessary for a rider to wear but it might not be enough to prevent a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

If you are a motorcycle rider who has suffered a brain injury despite your best efforts to be responsible and safe while riding, you must take action quickly to seek compensation and set things right. Contact Laynas & Georges, P.C. today and let our Philadelphia brain injury lawyers know what happened. Our case evaluations are free and we work for contingency fees – we do not get paid unless we win you a settlement – so you do not have to worry about paying upfront or out of pocket for our services.

Compensation for Lifelong Treatments

A brain injury is considerably more damaging than any other sort of bodily harm due to the fact that in many cases, once it has been done, it cannot be undone. Treatments may be used to reduce the overall impact of what a TBI has caused but a complete reversal is often impossible. For this reason, people who live with brain injuries generally need medications and therapy for the rest of their lives, which can become notably expensive.

Your injury claim should pursue compensation that helps pay for:

  • Initial medical treatments
  • Ongoing rehabilitation procedures
  • Medications and prescriptions
  • Reduced income potential
  • Damaged standard of living
  • Emotional depression or grief

Identifying TBIs Early is Crucial

There is a distinct possibility that you have suffered a brain injury after being in a motorcycle accident and not realize it yet. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 80% of motorcycle accidents will cause the rider to experience death or serious injury, most commonly brain or spine damage. Due to the adrenaline a crash victim experiences in the moment of impact, subtle brain injuries might not be readily apparent but this does not make them any less dangerous. This information is not meant to scare you, it should hopefully motivate you to see your doctor as soon as possible if you have not already.

Symptoms of underlying brain injuries caused in a motorcycle accident are:

  • Insomnia or excessive hours of sleeping
  • Blacking out
  • Unexplained seizures or vomiting
  • Sensory deprivation (deafness, blindness, numbness, etc.)
  • Uncharacteristic migraines
  • Difficulty talking or understanding speech
