Brain Hemorrhage Injury Following A Motorcycle Accident

A brain hemorrhage injury following a motorcycle accident may cause a victim to suffer permanent brain damage. Head hemorrhage, or head injuries, are some of the most devastating injuries that motorcyclists can suffer in an accident. While wearing a motorcycle helmet can reduce the motorcyclist’s risk of sustaining brain damage from impact, it does not give the motorcyclist complete protection. Motorcycle accident injuries can be reduced by wearing protective gear while riding.

When a motorcyclist is involved in a motorcycle accident, he bears the risk of having his brain shaken violently within the skull if his head hits the pavement or an object. If this occurs, it may cause a brain hemorrhage. Brain hemorrhaging can occur when arteries and blood vessels burst and bleed inside or outside the brain. Generally, when a victim in a motorcycle accident suffers brain hemorrhage(s) as a result of the accident, the brain hemorrhage puts pressure on the brain, which reduces blood supply to brain tissues. Oftentimes, brain hemorrhage injuries can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention.
