Head Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
Although motorcycle helmet technology has come a long way, wearing a helmet does not always prevent you from suffering head trauma in motorcycle accidents. No matter what safety gear you wear and how conscientiously you drive, if the driver of a car crashes into you, you could suffer extremely serious injuries.
Automobile drivers should be aware of everyone around them. However, if a driver acts recklessly, their negligence could result in head trauma and potential lifelong damages to motorcyclists. If you have suffered injury in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Common Forms of Head Trauma
The amount of head trauma that a motorcyclist suffers in a collision depends on whether or not he is wearing a helmet, as well as the type of crash. If you choose to ride without a helmet, you can suffer from:
- Lacerations and punctures
- Skull fractures
- Intracranial hematomas
However, if you are wearing a helmet, you may be protected from lacerations and punctures. A helmet can lessen the extent of your injury as well. For example, a crash that may have caused you a concussion without a helmet may only give you a slight contusion, or bruise, if you are wearing head protection.
Serious head trauma can cause extensive brain damage that may leave you unable to work and provide for yourself and your loved ones. If you or someone you love has suffered from this type of tragic accident due to someone else’s negligence, contact the Wisconsin motor vehicle accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874 to discuss the facts of your case.
