What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Traumatic brain injuries often occur as the result of a motorcycle accident and are the leading cause of death in persons under the age of 45.
Understanding the increased risk of head trauma after a motorcycle accident is particularly important in a personal injury case. The injuries can be extensive, debilitating, and potentially fatal.
Additionally, serious head trauma as the result of a motorcycle accident can often have long-term effects such as:
- Memory loss
- Inability to perform work duties or pursue hobbies
- Personality change
- Mood swings
- Other health complications
The medical costs associated with head trauma can also be quite extensive. Unlike minor injuries resulting from other less serious accidents, motorcycle accident victims often require extensive medical treatment and long periods of hospitalization. Even after a head trauma victim has been stabilized, they may require long term treatment or therapy.
These costs can accumulate quickly during a very difficult time. Contact an experienced Orlando motorcycle accident attorney at The Trial Professionals P.A. for a free case evaluation. We represent clients across the state, with offices in Fort Myers, Naples, Orlando, and Miami.
