What TBI Signs to Look for After a Crash

Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Attorney Explains

As motorcycles are much smaller than the average car, many drivers have difficulty seeing motorcyclists on the streets. This difference in size often leaves motorcyclists in great danger. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that a motorcycle operator is at 35 times greater risk of death than an automobile driver in a traffic accident.

This means that a motorcyclist mortality rate is approximately 35 percent higher than drivers in all other types of vehicles. When motorcyclists and passenger vehicles collide on Georgia streets, the results can be catastrophic or even deadly for the motorcyclist involved in the motorcycle accident.

Motorcyclists also have a 16 times greater chance of sustaining a serious injury, and head injuries are one of the most common yet serious injuries that occur in motorcycle crashes nationwide.

Some signs of head and brain injuries to be aware of after a motorcycle accident:

  • Trouble balancing
  • Slurred speech
  • Bleeding from the ears or nose
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Horrible headaches
  • Memory loss

Sadly, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the number one cause of disability in the nation, and many victims of TBI suffer this injury in motorcycle crashes. Other types of injuries motorcyclists suffer include road rash, broken bones, internal injuries, disfigurement, paralysis, and even death. If a severe injury—such as quadriplegia, paraplegia, or brain injury—has left you with extensive medical bills, unable to return to work, and in need of constant care, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, therapy, lost wages, and more.

It is important to talk with a skilled injury attorney to find out if you have a case and what the best course of action is to take.
