Your Indiana Brain Injury Attorney Discusses Helmets
John P. Young is your Indiana Brain Injury Attorney. Mr. Young is a member of the National Brain Injury Association and the Brain Injury Association of Indiana, and has been for more than 15 years. Mr. Young is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Indiana Brain Injury Association of Indiana, a past Chair of the Board of Directors and now sits on the Emeritus Board of Directors. As part of the mission of the Brain Injury Association, Mr. Young has been discussing the best way to deal with brain injury – PREVENTION. Prevention is the key to stopping brain injury. One very effective means of preventing brain injury is through the use of a helmet. This includes not only while riding a motorcycle, but when riding a bicycle or when snow skiing.
A brain injury can happen in a number of different ways. Did you know that a stroke is an injury to the brain? The most common cause of brain injury, however, is trauma or a direct blow to the head. While a helmet cannot completely prevent brain injury, a helmet is highly effective at either eliminating or reducing the damage caused by a blow to the head. Many of the brain injuries that occur annually in this country can be prevented. Each year 140,000 persons die from brain injuries and 70,000 persons sustain severe brain injuries. The Bike Helmet Safety Institute provides quick answers on how to buy a helmet and other frequently asked questions.
At Young and Young, we encourage every motorcyclist, bicyclist, and skier to wear their helmet. We also encourage parents to teach their children about helmet safety. If you or a loved one suffers a brain injury as the result of another person’s negligence, please call John P. Young today for a private, confidential and free consultation. Call (888) 639-5161 or email Mr. Young at [email protected] today. We only charge if there is a recovery for your injuries. Put 22 years of experience helping Hoosier families on your side
