Motorcycle accidents and the effects of a concussion

On Behalf of | Apr 14, 2017 | Blog |

Even with a helmet on, a motorcycle rider could suffer serious head injuries if he or she is ever in an accident. Despite the fact that a California victim could look perfectly fine on the outside, the internal impact of a serious head injury could take a negative toll on that person’s life. One common type of motor vehicle accident injury is a concussion.

Often dismissed as minor types of injuries, concussions are actually a type of traumatic brain injury. TBIs can affect cognitive function and have other side effects that can impact a person’s ability to work and enjoy a certain quality of life. If you were in a motorcycle accident and suffered a concussion, chances are that you were not fully aware of the true nature of your injury. Despite this, you may still have the right to a full recovery.

The true impact of a concussion 

There is no way to truly gauge the actual impact of a concussion right away. In fact, people who suffer from concussions may find that they do not recognize some symptoms until days or weeks later. Some of the signs that your concussion could be serious include: 

  • Trouble thinking clearly
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Prolonged headaches
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Vision problems
  • Inability to work for long periods of time
  • Trouble with daily activities 

You may not know how your concussion will impact your life until days or weeks later, but that does not mean that you lost your right to medical care. If you suffered your concussion as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of another person, you are entitled to necessary treatment and recompense for your recovery needs.

Who is responsible for my accident?

Unfortunately, bikers are often victims of the reckless actions of other drivers. Many motorcycle accidents are preventable, and collisions often happen because a driver is not paying attention, driving too fast or is unaware of how to safely share the road. You could have grounds for a civil claim if any of the following caused your motorcycle accident: 

  • Distraction
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Ignoring road signs
  • Aggressive driving

Even if you are unsure of how your accident happened or what factors eventually led to your concussion, you have the right to know your options. By reaching out to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney, you can find the support and guidance necessary to help you obtain a full recovery. Bikers have rights, and you do not have to suffer through a violation of your rights without help.
