A previous post on this blog reminded Cary, North Carolina, residents to be on the lookout for motorcycles on the area’s roads as the weather warms up during the spring months. Unfortunately, although it is a relatively simple thing to watch out for motorcycles, many North Carolina motorists will forget to do so and thereby cause an accident.
Serious injuries can and often do result from a motorcycle accident. For instance, even when a rider wears a helmet, and especially if he or she chooses not to, there is real possibility for serious head injury. The most serious head injuries can leave a person dead or permanently comatose, but brain injuries can affect people’s lives in many other ways.
For example, someone suffering from a brain injury may no longer be able to remember important details or be able to pay attention to simple tasks. They may also not be able to process instructions as quickly and may even have physical symptoms like headaches or the loss of the ability to smell or taste. Depending on what a person did prior to a motorcycle accident, a brain injury could mean that he or she will not be able to continue in his or her profession.
Whether a motorcycle accident leaves an individual in a coma, permanently disabled, or suffering from what might be a less obvious brain injury, the reality is that any brain injury, whether from a motorcycle accident or otherwise, will in all likelihood be an expensive problem to treat. It will also likely involve ongoing costs associated with recovery and rehabilitation. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney in North Carolina may be able to help a victim recover some of these costs via a personal injury lawsuit if the injurious accident was caused by a negligent driver.
