Boca Raton Head Injuries Lawyer Representing Motorcycle Riders
Head injuries are common in motorcycle accidents. Even when a rider is wearing a DOT or Snell-certified helmet, the forces involved in a collision can cause brain trauma—and this trauma can be life-altering in many cases. Due to the costs of treatment, recovery and living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is important to put an experienced Boca Raton head injuries lawyer on your side.
We represent motorcycle riders who have suffered head injuries in all types of accidents. Whether you or a loved one was injured in a collision, run off of the road or forced to go down, we can use our experience to fight for the financial compensation you and your family deserve. Once we investigate to determine the cause of your (or your loved one’s) motorcycle accident, we will then carefully calculate your long-term costs and work to obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
Common Head Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
Regardless of whether a rider is wearing a helmet, a motorcycle accident has the potential to result in multiple types of head injuries. While helmets can help reduce the risk of head injuries (and help reduce the severity of riders’ head trauma), they cannot prevent TBI and other head injuries entirely. With this in mind, common head injuries in motorcycle accidents include:
- Brain hemorrhages and hematomas
- Coup-contrecoup injuries
- Diffuse axonal injuries (DAI)
- Eye injuries
- Jaw injuries
- Nose injuries
Signs of a Potentially Serious Head Injury
In some cases, motorcycle accidents will result in bone fractures, external trauma and other physical injuries that are visible. However, with concussions and TBI, the symptoms can be much more subtle, and they will often progress over time. With this in mind, it is important for motorcycle accident victims and their family members to be aware of the signs of a potentially serious head injury—and go to their doctor (or go back to their doctor) if they have any concerns about their well-being. For example, some of the most common early symptoms of TBI include:
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling groggy or fatigued
- Losing consciousness
- Memory loss or difficulty remembering
- Severe headaches
- Sleep disturbances
Treatment Options (and Costs) For Motorcycle Accident Head Injuries
The treatment options for head injuries from motorcycle accidents can vary greatly depending on both the nature and severity of a rider’s injury. For example, some injuries (such as concussions) can heal with rest—and getting adequate rest can be an essential part of the recovery process. However, treatment for other types of head injuries can be much more intensive, and emergency surgery may even be required in some cases.
Regardless of the treatment that is necessary, recovering from a head injury can be extremely expensive. Injured riders’ medical bills can add up quickly, and they may need to miss weeks, months or even years of work due to their trauma. Serious head injuries can lead to scarring and disfigurement, brain disorders, anxiety and depression, chronic pain, and other long-term consequences as well. These are all losses that a Boca Raton head injuries lawyer can help you seek to recover.
How an Experienced Boca Raton Head Injuries Lawyer Can Help
While there are several steps involved in protecting your legal rights after a serious motorcycle accident, one of the most important steps you can take is hiring an experienced Boca Raton head injuries lawyer to represent you. When you hire a lawyer at The Grife Law Firm for your motorcycle accident head injury claim, your lawyer will:
1. Prove Liability for the Accident
Your lawyer will investigate the accident to determine exactly why the accident happened and who (or what company) is to blame. If you were wearing a helmet, this includes determining if a defect in your helmet is partially responsible for your head injury.
2. Calculate Your Financial and Non-Financial Losses
Your lawyer will also calculate just compensation for your financial and non-financial losses. This includes not only your losses to date but also the losses you will incur in the future as a result of your motorcycle accident head injury.
3. Fight for Maximum Compensation
After determining who (or what company) was at fault and how much you are entitled to recover, your lawyer will fight for maximum compensation on your behalf. Your lawyer will work to negotiate a favorable settlement if possible, and your lawyer will take your claim to court if necessary.
