Traumatic Brain Injury After a Motorcycle Accident
If you or someone you care for has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you’ll want to contact a Naples law firm that specializes in personal injury cases right away.
This is especially true if you’ve sustained a head injury. You’ll want to keep in mind that the signs of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not be immediately evident, and injuries of this nature often require long-term care.
The impact of a TBI is often more significant than people can imagine. In some cases, they lead to debilitating, life-altering changes.
A cautionary tale
One client we spoke with told us the cautionary tale of a TBI that her brother, “John” sustained. He was an extreme sports junkie, and when it came to transportation, he always preferred his motorcycle to his car.
About 15 years ago, she said, John was struck by a passenger vehicle that failed to stop at a stop sign. And while he “knocked his head pretty good” at the time of the accident, John didn’t appear to have sustained any major injuries. As such, he declined a full medical exam and when the at-fault party’s insurance company called to settle, he took the early offer.
Signs of his TBI didn’t begin to emerge until 10 years later, and today, he requires ongoing medical care. His doctors believe the injury is a direct result of the years-old accident.
Things to remember
When it comes to filing a personal injury case for motorcycle accident injuries, it’s not only about ensuring you’re compensated for immediate medical expenses, it’s about making sure you’re compensated in a way that help with future medical care.
This is why seeing a doctor, documenting injuries and speaking with an experienced Naples law firm is paramount. Your lawyer will be able to evaluate the circumstances of your case and they’ll be able to advise you on how to proceed.
