Motorcycle accidents, paralysis and depression

A motorcycle accident can lead to paralysis after a head injury, a neck injury or a spinal injury. Even riders with proper personal protection equipment and years of experience can get hurt. All it takes is one mistake by another driver.

For those who do become paralyzed, it is important to note that this physical disorder has often been linked to depression and similar mental/emotional disorders. The prestigious Cleveland Clinic even goes so far as to call depression common after such incidents.

Why is this? For one thing, you may never fully recover from paralysis. It's not like minor injuries, like a broken arm. Even with medical care and prompt treatment, you could have to live with this forever. That outlook can be hard for people to accept when they previously led a very active lifestyle.

Speaking of lifestyles, they often have to change significantly when living with paralysis. You may need care around the clock. Forget about riding a motorcycle again; you may not even be able to take a shower on your own. When your lifestyle changes this much, you may feel like you've lost much of what you loved.

It's also worth noting that head and brain injuries impact people in a variety of different ways. Could your depression simply stem from that initial injury and the irreversible damage that it did?

At the end of the day, depression is just one of many post-accident symptoms and disorders you may experience. If someone else caused that crash, you need to know about all of the legal options you have to seek compensation.
