Traumatic Brain Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries in Denver and throughout the United States. A motorcyclist may sustain open or closed head trauma in a motorcycle accident, usually depending on whether he or she is wearing a helmet. In Colorado, riders over the age of 17 are not required to wear helmets. However, there are many indications that wearing a helmet may prevent traumatic brain injury and fatalities caused by motorcycle accidents. According to NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) statistics from 2008, it is estimated that helmets saved more than 1,800 lives and would have saved more than 800 more if all riders had been wearing helmets.

Even when wearing a helmet, a motorcyclist may sustain non-penetrative trauma to the front of the head, causing brain damage that affects speech and other higher functions. A motorcyclist who is not wearing a helmet will be at greater risk of sustaining penetrative injuries that cause damage to the skull and may even perforate the brain itself. These traumatic brain injuries may have an immense impact on a victim's life. The brain is the control center of the body, responsible for thought, memory and the control of bodily functions. A traumatic brain injury may result in a concussion, coma, memory loss, loss of cognitive skills, personality changes and various other conditions that may change all aspects of the victim's life and future.

Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injuries in Denver

Recovering maximum financial compensation is of the utmost importance in relation to a traumatic brain injury sustained in a motorcycle accident. You may be entitled to compensation for medical care, lost earnings, future medical treatment, emotional damages and even more, but without the help of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer your ability to recover the damages you need may be at risk. That is why we recommend that you contact our offices as soon as possible to discuss your case.
