About 5:07 p.m., the 56-year-old man hit the rear of a pickup truck that was turning left onto the 1600 block of West Irving Park Road, Chicago police said.

As seen in the above Lake View motorcycle collision, there can be many different types of accidents that result from a motorcycle crash. As seen in many Illinois motorcycle accidents that have been discussed on this site, among the most potentially serious accidents are head injuries. On this site, head injuries and the many issues that can arise from them are discussed on the “Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) And Concussions” page. As discussed on that page, brain injuries can range from mild concussions to severe brain injuries. Severe brain injuries can be immediately life-threatening.

One aspect of head injuries is that symptoms can be delayed. As such, those who hit their heads during accidents may have a brain injury and not realize it for a significant amount of time. If the brain injury is serious in nature, and medical treatment is not immediately administered, serious adverse health problems may occur. Whenever someone is hurt in an accident, it is recommended that a thorough medical exam is performed. This is further discussed on the “Reasons For Getting A Medical Exam After A Motorcycle Accident” page.
