Helmets save lives. There’s no question about that. But, strapping on a helmet and calling yourself good to go isn’t necessarily the safest way to traverse the roads.
Serious injuries can do more than cause a few weeks of inconvenient recovery. They can end careers, disable bodies and cause lasting psychological trauma as well as physical pain. But few injuries are more serious and long-lasting than brain injuries.
Any injury can feel like a robbery. People must spend precious time in recovery, they have high expenses at a time when it is harder to earn and some lifestyle changes may last for a lifetime. Some accidents and actions are dangerous enough to cause death, and survivors of victims can feel quite lost.
