Did You Get a Concussion in a Motorcycle Accident?
Our law firm will fight for you
Motorcyclists don't have the same protective and safety features that most passenger vehicle drivers have. Helmets may be the only thing they have to protect themselves from sustaining head injuries in motorcycle accidents. Even while equipped with a helmet, head injuries, particularly concussions, can still happen.
The attorneys at Bretz & Young in Hutchinson, Salina, Wichita, Garden City, Dodge City, Liberal, and Hays have seen the devastation a concussion can cause to an accident victim. With decades of experience and a wealth of legal knowledge, we proudly serve injured motorcyclists across the state of Kansas. If you’ve been injured in a crash, contact us to discuss your options.
Take your concussion seriously from the start
A concussion may not seem severe enough to seek medical attention. In many cases, accident victims don't notice any symptoms until days after a crash occurs. Concussions often manifest in many different ways, including:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Confusion and disorientation
- Mood changes
- Memory loss
- Issues with balance and coordination
- Blurry vision
- Ringing in ears
- Light sensitivity
- Delayed responses
- Slurred speech
- Nausea and vomiting
- Temporary loss of consciousness
If a concussion is left untreated, the symptoms can become worse over time, potentially costing you more time spent in recovery and more medical bills. In severe cases, the damage can be permanent.
That's why after a motorcycle accident, you should always seek immediate medical attention - even if your feel fine. Furthermore, the longer you wait to see a doctor, the more difficult it will be to obtain compensation for your medical expenses when filing a claim.
