Every year, 1.5 million people suffer from a brain injury in the United States. Did you know that is six times the combined number of people who are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, suffer a spinal cord injury, contract HIV/AIDS, and who are diagnosed with breast cancer?
The San Diego personal injury attorneys at our firm know that traumatic brain injuries like concussions and bleeding in the brain (subdural hematoma) are likely personal injuries because of the force generated from a car accident.
Motorcycle accidents and truck accidents can also cause these same head and brain injuries as well. Motorcycle accidents are most likely to cause traumatic head and brain injury because of the lack of size and safety features.
Head and brain injuries are commonly caused by motor vehicle accidents. Not wearing a seat belt can lead to a driver or passenger getting ejected from the vehicle leading to head and brain injuries causing concussions.
Not wearing a helmet while riding is also a large cause of head and brain injuries. Many states require motorcyclists to wear a helmet, but others do not. The states which do not have that requirement have a higher rate of traumatic brain injury and wrongful death.
Our personal injury lawyers in San Diego want to take this opportunity to address the possibilities of getting into a car accident or motorcycle accident that can lead to serious head and brain injuries, require extensive medical treatment, and that can possibly cause wrongful death.
