The importance of wearing a helmet was outlined in last week’s post on this blog, and the stark reality that many bikers in Ohio do not wear a helmet despite the benefits of it. But even those who wear a helmet can suffer severe head injuries, as helmet use does not eliminate the risk of injury, but only reduces it.
Since there is no outwardly protection, motorcycle drivers can end up flying through the air and hurting their head severely. Head injuries can include concussions and traumatic brain injuries that can even be permanent and affect the quality of the rest of the victim’s life.
Not only can it affect the quality of life physically, but also financially as head injuries can lead to extended hospital stays and repeated hospital trips. Continuing therapy and medication also come hand in hand with a head injury.
