San Diego Helmet Law Attorneys
Motorcycle accident victims often sustain severe head and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in accidents caused by other drivers. Sometimes helmets prevent or mitigate the consequences of these injuries; sometimes they do not. The helmet law attorneys at San Diego’s Traffic Accident Law Center represent motorcycle riders and their families in seeking financial compensation for their medical bills and other losses.
San Diego Helmet Law Lawyers for Head and Brain Injuries
California’s motorcycle helmet law requires all motorcycle drivers and passengers to wear approved safety helmets. The law specifies that all riders’ motorcycle helmets must comply with the standards established by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. You can read about these detailed specifications here.
The California and federal helmet laws and regulations are intended to protect motorcycle riders in the event of an accident—and there is no denying that helmets save lives. However, the sad fact of the matter is that hundreds of riders are still killed and thousands more are injured every year, often in accidents caused by negligent drivers. Our San Diego motorcycle accidents lawyers have represented numerous accident victims who sustained serious injuries in vehicle collisions even though they were wearing proper safety equipment at the time of the accident.
Head and Brain Injuries in California Motorcycle Accidents
The San Diego helmet law attorneys at the Traffic Accident Law Center have helped countless individuals and their families obtain compensation for head and brain injuries sustained in California motorcycle accidents. Even if you or your loved one was not wearing a proper helmet (or was not wearing any helmet at all), you may still be able to obtain at least a partial recovery. Our experience in helmet law cases includes representing individuals who have sustained various types of head and traumatic brain injuries.
It is often difficult to assess the severity of your injuries immediately following an accident. In addition, the effects of TBI can take days or even weeks to fully manifest themselves after you sustain a trauma. If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the following symptoms, you should seek medical attention right away and contact a San Diego helmet law attorney about seeking compensation for your injuries:
- Blurred vision
- Trouble concentrating
- Memory problems
- Slurred speech
- Behavioral changes
These all may be indicators of a traumatic brain injury sustained in a motorcycle accident.
