People who are involved in a car accident can suffer from a hit to the head. In some cases, those injuries lead to the need for monitoring the pressure and temperature of the brain. Currently, that requires surgical placement of a monitor that is attached to a monitoring device. Ongoing research is working toward changing that invasive process.
People who ride motorcycles are often thought of as tough men who are rebels. That isn't usually the case. The vast majority of bikers are people who obey the law and just enjoy being on the open road. The preconceived thoughts about bikers can make it seem like an uphill battle for bikers who are injured in an accident that was caused by another vehicle.
When you fall off of a motorcycle after being struck by a car, there is a pretty good chance that you are going to hit your head on the ground or on your motorcycle. A bump on the head, even if you have on a helmet and even if the bump is seemingly minor, can lead to a brain injury known as a subdural hematoma.
As we discussed in our previous blog, settlements are sometimes possible in truck accident injury cases. We understand that it is important to prepare your case for a trial just in case a fair settlement isn't reached. That is something that we consider especially important because there is never any guarantee that a settlement will be reached.
