Brain injuries are extremely common injuries suffered after a Dallas-Fort Worth motorcycle collision. Even if the rider is wearing a helmet (it is not state law to do so in Texas) a blow to the head caused by a traffic wreck can still result in significant damage to the brain. It is vitally important, even if you feel okay, that you seek immediate medical attention from a doctor specializing in head injuries. If you go untreated, you are increasing the risk of potentially fatal blood clots. Be aware also that even if an initial MRI scan shows no evidence of brain damage, that does not mean that brain injury does not exist, so further neurological testing may be necessary in order to fully assess and accurately determine the true extent of your injuries.
Closed-Head Injuries Suffered By Motorcycle RidersThe majority of motorcycle crash brain injuries are not immediately visible as they are closed head injuries, meaning there is not necessarily significant visual damage on the head's exterior. There may be no bruising, swelling or bleeding, but that does not mean that no injury has occurred. Symptoms to watch out for include headaches, nausea, dizziness, ringing in the ears, loss of short-term memory and increasingly aggressive behavior/personality.
