Head injuries are common during a motor cycle accident. Without the protection of a car user, it is often the case that the rider comes off worse. The most common type of head injury in is a closed head injury where upon impact there is a violent movement of the head which causes the brain to move around in the skull, causing damage.
Other common types of head injuries to bike riders are from shearing forces which involve a rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head (similar to whiplash injuries in a motor vehicle).
On average there are about 600 bikers a year killed on our (UK) roads and 7000 serious injuries. Head injuries are the main cause of death and serious injuries. A bike rider is 45 times more likely to be killed in a road accident than a car driver.
