Automobile, motorcycle and commercial truck accidents are among the leading causes of brain injuries in the United States. During a car accident, drivers and/or passengers can hit their heads on the steering wheel, windshield or doorframe. In a motorcycle collision, riders are frequently thrown from the bike and strike their heads against the hard pavement or other objects in the area. Any blow to the head causes the brain to move violently in the skull. This is the common cause of a brain injury.
Brain injuries should be taken very seriously. Even mild brain injuries can result in permanent, life-altering medical conditions that victims and their families must cope with for the rest of the victim’s life. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) require extensive, on-going medical and personal care. The tragic reality is that many brain injuries could have been prevented or mitigated by the use of seatbelts and airbags.
