Drunk motorcyclist critically injures man, brain injury results

A multitude of people nearly every single day across the state of Texas could sustain a form of brain injury due to a variety of causes of trauma to the head. When serious, this kind of injury is known as a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. TBIs are sometimes not obvious and are difficult to properly diagnose, but their effects can be serious and sometimes life-threatening.

A recent motor vehicle accident in another state has resulted in a man being seriously injured. The accident occurred in mid-June and involved a cable car operator. After being struck by an allegedly intoxicated motorcyclist, the man sustained a traumatic brain injury.

The cable car operator, a 50-year-old man, exited the car for a moment. It was then that, according to police, the motorcyclist struck him. He was taken to a nearby medical center with what were believed to be life-threatening injuries, which included a brain injury as well as a fractured skull. The driver of the motorcycle was arrested for felony DUI.

No matter how minor it may seem, when someone in Texas receives a blow to the head, he or she must be aware of the long-term health results that he or she might potentially face as a result of a brain injury. After medical attention, and if negligence or recklessness is proved, it is often advisable to seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney well-versed in pursuing claims related to these kinds of injuries. A successfully filed claim of this nature can help mitigate some of the resultant medical costs incurred as a result of the injury.
