Crash course in brain injuries stemming from motorcycle crash

As you go for a joy ride on your motorcycle, everything feels right with the world. However, all of a sudden, you see another motorist cross into your lane, and he does not stop. The next thing you know, both you and your bike are on the ground, and your head is pounding -- so much for a joy ride.

Another driver's negligence in California can quickly cause you to become a motorcycle crash victim. A serious bike accident may lead to severe injuries, of which brain injuries are among the most critical due to their potential long-term impact. Fortunately, if you have suffered brain injuries in a motorcycle crash, you have the right to seek justice.

What is a brain injury?

Symptoms of a brain injury usually begin to appear not long after an injury. Injuries to the brain are the result of a sudden impact that prevents your brain from functioning normally. An example of such an impact is a jolt or a blow to the head. You may also suffer a brain injury if an object penetrates your skull during a motorcycle accident.

What are signs of a brain injury?

You can tell you have a brain injury if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Weak feeling in your legs or arms
  • Excessive drowsiness
  • Feeling confused or losing consciousness
  • Losing your vision or feeling dizzy
  • Severe headache
  • Numbness

Seeing a doctor right away is critical to diagnose your brain issue and address your symptoms. However, your symptoms might not show up immediately. Therefore, if you don't notice strong symptoms but still feel that your brain might have suffered an injury, seeking medical assistance as soon as possible may be a wise move.

Your rights following the motorcycle crash

You have the right to seek compensation if another driver caused you to suffer brain injuries due to his or her carelessness behind the wheel. Compensation may help you to pay for your brain injury-related medical bills -- past, present and future. You may even use the compensation to cover lost wages if your injuries kept you from returning to work right away. A monetary award cannot undo the events that resulted in your injuries, but it may help you to more easily move forward from the unfortunate motorcycle crash.
