It should come as no surprise that motorcyclists are at a higher risk of severe injuries when involved in accidents due to the lack of protection they have when they’re involved in an accident. Even the most minor of falls can result in extraordinary pain, with most of the pain occurring in the days, weeks or even months to follow. Many motorcyclists mistakenly believe that they are not injured following a fall or accident due to the initial shock, trauma and subsequent adrenaline, only to find weeks later that they are, in fact, injured. Thus, it is very important for motorists to contact a medical professional and local accident lawyer immediately following an accident to make sure they have a proper work up.
If you are a motorist who has been involved in an accident, you should consult with a doctor regardless of whether you feel okay. Aside from the visible scratches and bruises, more severe and less visible injuries include a traumatic brain injury, a mild traumatic brain injury and/or nerve damage.
