For many different reasons, cycling is being embraced by millions across the country. Some take up cycling for the health benefits. Riding a bicycle has been associated with improved mental health, weight loss, and an increase in heart health. Other people embrace cycling in an effort to cut down their environmental footprint. It is a great way to get from place to place without having to worry about carbon emissions.

Injuries from bicycle crashes are often severe. Even if you were wearing a helmet, injuries to your body can result in pain, dysfunction, and disability. One of the most severe injuries is traumatic brain injury. A concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury. As we have learned recently from football and other sports, concussions can lead to lasting brain damage. This damage can increase your risk of Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease. It also raises suicide rates significantly during a period of up to two years after the concussion. This is why we encourage all cyclists to wear helmets, no matter their age. If you have a head injury, it is crucial to have an attorney on your side.
