Austin Motorcycle Accident Brain Injury Lawyer
With our rolling hills, country roads, and highways, motorcycling in Texas is extremely popular. In 2014, there were a whopping 445,395 registered motorcycles in Texas—the third highest in the country.
Because of their vehicle’s smaller size and lack of safety features, motorcyclists are more prone to serious injury and death when involved in an accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there were about 88,000 injuries and 4,976 deaths as a result of motorcycle accidents in 2015.
Contacting an Austin motorcycle accident brain injury lawyer from Colley & Colley, LLP is critical if you or a loved one has suffered a head injury in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another.

Traumatic Brain Injuries Related to Motorcycle Accidents
Being thrown off a motorcycle after being hit by a car or truck can cause a biker’s head to slam against the ground or another object, such as a tree, pole, or another vehicle. Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild to severe, and many symptoms will not be present at the time of the accident.
This makes it important to seek medical treatment immediately—even if you were wearing a helmet during your motorcycle wreck.
Mild symptoms of a brain injury may include headaches, dizziness, confusion, fatigue, lightheadedness, behavioral changes, and memory problems. Severe symptoms may include headaches that won’t go away, seizures and convulsions, vomiting and nausea, and loss of coordination and balance.
The impact on you and your family can be devastating, not only physically and emotionally but also financially. After suffering a brain injury from a motorcycle crash, it’s crucial to obtain an Austin motorcycle accident brain injury lawyer to fight for your rights and recover the compensation you deserve.
