There are some very simple steps to help reduce the risk of a brain or spinal cord injury. In car accidents, these injuries are often caused by hitting one’s head against the dashboard, windshield or side of the car. Seatbelts play an integral role in lowering the risk of this happening. Motorcycle and bicycle accidents can also lead to these types of injuries, and simply wearing a helmet can provide significant protection if against them.
Of course, some accidents caused by negligent drivers can be so devastating that these simple steps will not prevent the injury – in which case you should seek the advice of an experienced Seattle injury attorney to help you get the money you need to cover your damages.
