Motorcycle Accidents and Traumatic Brain Injury

Head injury is one of the most common injuries sustained by motorcyclists. Even with a helmet on during a crash, the rider may suffer head injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), one of the most severe and costly injuries an accident victim can sustain. TBI can lead to a lifetime of disability and result in months of rehabilitation and substantial long-term-care expenses. Motorcyclists with a TBI are less likely to be discharged home and more likely to require rehabilitation or to be discharged to a long-term carefacility following their hospitalization, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
