Head Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
Help For Injured Motorcyclists
Motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in head injuries. This is simply because motorcyclists do not have the protection provided by other vehicles. The only buffer they have against an impact is a helmet, and there is no guarantee that even that will prevent brain injuries. Even with a helmet, the brain can bounce against the inside of the skull, resulting in what is referred to as a closed head injury.
What if the victim was not wearing a helmet? In Ohio, motorcycle riders are not required to wear helmets, so the lack of a helmet does not prevent the victim from seeking compensation if he or she was hit by a negligent driver. Action can be taken.
