You had a motorcycle helmet on at the time of your crash. You didn’t suffer a traumatic brain injury nor did you suffer a skull fracture. However, the helmet didn’t protect your from being significantly injured in a Missouri motorcycle crash.
Helmets Aren’t Designed to Prevent All Motorcycle Accident Injuries
The helmet that sits on your head may reduce the likelihood of a head injury and some kinds of spinal cord injuries, but it won’t protect you from all serious injuries. Specifically, you may still be at risk of suffering:
- A spinal cord injury.
- Significant road burn.
- Broken bones.
- Internal injuries.
- Other injuries.
These injuries can be painful, they can be permanently disabling, and they can be life threatening. Accordingly, it is important to know what to do so that you can protect your potential recovery.
