Examining types of head injuries

As warmer weather moves in many people in Pennsylvania are choosing to ride a motorcycle. These smaller vehicles can be easy on the budget and fun to ride. Whatever reason people choose to ride these vehicles, they should be safe from other negligent drivers. However, they often aren't. Negligent drivers often fail to notice motorcyclists on the roadways and cause serious motorcycle accidents. 

These motorcycle accidents can result in a variety of different injuries to riders. These can include head injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, broken bones and more.

There are a variety of types of dangerous head injuries that can cause life-long consequences. These include a hematoma. A hematoma is a blood clot or brain bleed that can put pressure on the brain. There is also a hemorrhage. A hemorrhage is an active and uncontrolled bleed in the space between the brain and the skull. This can also cause pressure to build on the brain and lead to serious complications. 

A person can also suffer a concussion. This occurs when the brain bounces from the skull. This can cause temporary or permanent issues including a loss of function. Brain injuries can also include skull fractures and edema, or swelling of the brain.

When one of these brain injuries is caused because of the negligence of another during a motorcycle accident, then people may have legal rights. Victims may have the right to compensation for their losses as well as medical expenses and lost wages. An attorney can help people determine if they have the right to compensation following a motorcycle accident and can take steps to seek this money.
