A brain injury is a serious risk if you get involved in a motorcycle accident. Even with a helmet on, the crash could still result in a hard hit to the head. No matter how extensive, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have a lasting impact on your life.
One of the first pieces of advice people will give you if you decide to ride a motorcycle is this: Always wear your helmet. No matter how far you're going, no matter what state you're in, and no matter how safe you feel. Always wear it.
