When you’ve been in a motorcycle crash, your injuries can be severe and affect you for the rest of your life. This is especially true if you have suffered any amount of brain damage as a result of your accident.

Even if you think you have suffered only a minor concussion and are still able to function on a day-to-day basis without help, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) such as a concussion could have lasting effects that impact the rest of your life.

With the assistance of a Boise motorcycle accident brain injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates, you can get your questions answered and seek compensation for all of the ways that your brain injury has affected your quality of life.


Recognizing the Signs of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Brain injuries can be challenging because you might not realize immediately after the accident that you have suffered a serious injury. Cuts and bruises are immediately visible, but if there is some injury to your brain, it can be difficult to identify at first.

Some of the signs of concussions and other traumatic brain injuries that you should look for after a motorcycle accident include the following:

  • Confusion
  • Lethargy
  • Memory loss
  • Headache and migraine
  • Blurry vision


Getting Medical Treatment for Brain Injuries

Some of these symptoms can be mistaken for minor injuries. Worse, you might at first think that these symptoms are occurring because of the stress of the accident, so they can be easily overlooked.

Because Idaho doesn’t require riders over the age of eighteen to wear a helmet, many motorcyclist experience some sort of trauma to their head during a wreck. It is important to ask your friends and family to let you know if you are acting strangely afterward, as changes in behavior could signal a brain injury.

Should you notice any of the above symptoms, seeing a doctor will help you determine what the problem is and allow us to begin properly valuing your injury claim.
