According to the Center for Disease Control, a person in the US suffers a brain injury every 21 seconds. Many brain injuries are severe and result in death or coma for the victim; other injuries can be less severe with symptoms that may be hard to recognize. Most victims can fully recover, although some symptoms, while they last, can be confusing and unsettling. For these reasons, brain injuries require immediate medical attention, and accident victims should also contact of our qualified brain and head injury lawyers.

Common causes of brain and head injuries
California Vehicle Code to Wear a Helmet
Motorcycle riders are required by California Vehicle Code to wear a helmet to protect the motorcycle rider’s head and brain from injury in a motorcycle accident. Although proper use of a helmet may reduce the magnitude of some head injuries, a motorcycle helmet cannot completely eliminate the risk of permanent injuries such as traumatic brain injury and other injuries to the head, brain, and skull.
That being the case, even if a rider was not wearing a helmet and suffered head injury, an aggressive motorcycle accident lawyer would argue that even if the client was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, the injury would not have been prevented by a helmet.
Full and Fair Compensation for Your Brain Injury
Motorcycle accident head and brain injuries affect not just the victim but also the victim’s family and close friends. Motorcycle accident victims who suffer from brain injury are typically unable to work, require full time care, extensive medical treatment, and often brain surgery among other medical attention. Given the serious nature of such accidents, injured bikers and their families often are entitled to huge compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, loss of earnings, loss of consortium (inability to have marital relations) and more.
As a motorcyclist, you should contact an attorney who has experience handling personal traumatic brain injury cases. At Wilshire Law Firm, our personal injury legal team and staff regularly handle accident cases involving substantial injury to the victim.

For those clients without medical insurance or other means of paying upfront costs for treatment, the firm can arrange for all required medical treatment by working with doctors and hospitals to accept payment on a lien basis.
