Concussions and Motorcycle Accidents
We help the injured recover financial compensation
Head injuries are some of the most common - and most serious - injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents. These types of injuries can have life-changing consequences and leave victims with a permanent disability. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan help the injured get justice.
We know that most motorcyclists are responsible and safe on the road. But it only takes one act of negligence by another driver to cause a motorcycle accident that leaves you with a serious head injury. Blunt force trauma from a blow to the head can cause a wide range of problems. These include:
- Concussions - The brain is jolted and slams into the skull.
- Brain Contusions - This can happen during a concussion and a bruise develops.
- Second Impact Syndrome - If there is a second brain injury soon after the first, damage to the brain can be doubled.
We're focused on your injury
Motorcyclists can crash their head into the car that hit them, or into the ground after being thrown from their bike, or both. Helmets provide some protection, but some damage can occur even with a helmet depending on the force of impact.
People who suffer concussions and other head injuries may experience memory loss, loss of coordination, chronic headaches or migraines. Symptoms may take several days to appear. Recovery can take months. Some people are left with a permanent disability. That's why it's important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident.
Head injuries may require extensive medical treatment. Expenses can quickly become overwhelming. And if your injury leaves you unable to return to work, you can suffer a loss of income. This makes it harder for families to make ends meet, often resulting in severe financial difficulties.
