MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT BRAIN INJURY PREVENTED WITH HELMET
We recently came across an article that shows that states (unlike Minnesota) with mandatory helmet laws have fewer people with brain injury cases from motorcycle accidents. The conclusion, of course, is that wearing a helmet while riding protects against a brain injury from a motorcycle accident. Here is a link to the article. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/284624.php. This is in addition to an earlier study we posted about a few months ago showing that mandatory helmet laws reduce deaths from motorcycle crashes.
Our MN motorcycle accident lawyers can tell you that a brain injury is among the worst, most tragic, injuries we see. There are great treatment facilities in Minnesota for a brain injury, and progress in treatment has been made, but there is just too little known about the brain to guarantee a good recovery in all cases. Living with a brain injury is difficult for the accident victim and their family. It really turns their lives upside down, and is just very different than other physical injuries. It makes so much sense to wear a helmet when riding. It may not be perfect, but it often makes a big difference in the outcome of a motorcycle accident.
