Brain injury is a common consequence of motorcycle accidents. Even in cases where protective gear such as helmets are worn, impact to the head can have lasting and potentially fatal complications. If you or someone you love has sustained brain injury in a motorcycle accident the Seattle attorneys at the Hornbuckle Firm can help. Please call us today at (425) 679-0742 to schedule your free and informative case evaluation.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle helmets are 67 percent effective at preventing brain injury when worn properly. Accidents in which bikers are wearing helmets are also 37 percent less likely to result in fatal injury. This is why Washington State has made wearing a helmet mandatory for all riders and their passengers.
Helmets can help prevent serious and fatal injury, but cannot be relied on to prevent all types of head trauma. When you sustain head trauma in a motorcycle accident, you need an attorney on your side who is prepared to take your case as far as necessary to secure for you the maximum compensation you are due.
