Motorcycle accidents occur every day around this nation. Sadly, brain injuries are one of the most common yet severe types of injuries motorcyclists sustain. While many motorcycle riders die from traumatic brain injuries, some motorcyclists are left to deal with the effects of a brain injury.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury in a Florida motorcycle crash, it is important that you understand the effects of a brain injury, including:
- Behavioral effects. Depending on the part of the brain that is injured, a victim of a motorcycle crash can suffer behavioral and emotional changes, such as anger, aggression, impulsiveness, verbal outbursts, depression and negativity.
- Physical effects. People with traumatic brain injuries often suffer from headaches, seizures, loss of coordination, difficulty walking and standing, trouble balancing, and trouble with hand-eye coordination. Unfortunately, many victims of traumatic brain injuries can no longer work or enjoy their hobbies ever again.
- Cognitive effects. After a traumatic brain injury, it is likely victims will deal with concentration, attention, memory, and language problems.
- Financial effects. Because the results of a brain injury are very serious, victims of brain injuries will require ongoing medical attention and therapy. As a result of hospital bills and medical care costs, in addition to not being able to work again and make a living, the costs associated with a brain injury can quickly add up.
The behavioral, physical and cognitive effects injured motorcyclists have to live with are often lifelong, which is why victims of brain injuries need enough compensation to get the proper care and treatment.
