Alabama motorcyclists understand just how dangerous sharing the road with other vehicles can be. Because of your size and the speeds you may travel at, it is common for motorcyclists who get involved in a crash to end up with the worst of the injuries. Among these, head injuries can be some of the most common and brutal.

The Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) has a page dedicated to understanding traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Causes of TBI are always external rather than internal, and may result in a loss of consciousness, amnesia, or damage to the skull or brain. This damage can often be seen by the naked eye, but in other cases it may only be picked up by a brain scan. You may also experience seizures in the aftermath of a TBI.

Wearing a helmet can indeed have an impact on the severity of the brain injury you may face. However, it doesn't completely guarantee that you won't suffer from head trauma at all. The speeds at which vehicles travel can make any impact potentially harmful. However, minor brain injuries are much easier to deal with than TBIs. The recovery time is shorter, and often a person will only need rest and possibly minimal physical therapy in order to make a recovery. TBIs, on the other hand, can result in months of intensive therapy. In some cases, you may not be able to attain the prior quality of life that you had before the crash.

Because of how harmful crashes can be for you as a motorcyclist, it is important for you to have strong representation in court. An attorney may be able to give you the edge you need when seeking damages.
