Common Types of Injuries
Bike accidents result in severe injuries to the bike riders. Even though most riders wear helmets, one of the most common types of injury outside of broken bones is a traumatic brain injury. Helmets help protect cyclists’ heads in accidents but the forces can be so strong that traumatic brain injuries still occur. Traumatic brain injuries can be life altering and sometimes may not even show up on tests such as a CT scan. This area of medicine has made great leaps forward and has been in the forefront of the media wit the recent NFL Lawsuits. There are many symptoms of brain injuries that can occur over a long period of time including post-concussive syndrome, headaches, loss of ability to perform activities of daily living, depression, suicide, severe mood swings, personality changes, and much more. If you or a family member has suffered a brain injury as a result of a negligent driver, it is important to hire a brain injury lawyer.
