Head And Traumatic Brain Injuries From A Motorcycle Accident Attorney
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 22 percent of nonfatal motorcycle injuries are to the head and neck, often resulting in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Motorcycle accidents often involve the ejection of the rider striking another vehicle or the street. Even with a helmet, serious head injuries are a common result of this type of accident.

Common Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
A TBI is trauma-induced physiological disruption of brain function. TBIs can either be caused by a direct impact to the head or by a temporary displacement of the brain within the skull, usually as a result of a sharp back-and-forth motion of the head, a common occurrence in motorcycle accidents. Those who have suffered from a TBI often demonstrate at least one of the following symptoms:
- Loss of consciousness, even for a brief period of time
- Amnesia or loss of memory for events immediately before or after the accident
- Vomiting, dizziness or nausea
- Unusual irritability, nervousness or fatigue
- Forgetfulness or memory problems
- Blurred vision
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
- Alteration in mental state at the time of the accident, such as feeling dazed, disoriented or confused
The Effects Of TBIs
TBIs often result in long-term and debilitating disabilities, which can become permanent. These injuries can interfere with a person’s ability to engage in routine tasks of daily living, known as activities of daily living (ADLs). Tasks as simple as getting dressed, bathing, washing and eating can be impaired. People who have sustained a brain injury are often unable to think coherently or properly. In short, major TBIs can change a fully independent person to a completely dependent childlike victim who may require full-time or even round-the-clock care.
Some TBIs resulting from motorcycle accidents can be more subtle in nature. These moderate traumatic brain injuries may cause minor manifestations of the symptoms listed above, making them difficult to diagnose. Appropriate neurological examination and neuropsychiatric testing is necessary to properly evaluate and treat such injuries and to provide for rehabilitation. If left untreated, they can result in significant, long-term disability for the victim.
