An attorney who builds strong cases built on facts
There are different ways your head can become injured in a car accident. The force of impact can whip your head back and forth with tremendous force. Or you can suffer head trauma if your head hits the windshield, dashboard or steering wheel. Many people suffer concussions after a rear-end accident because the brain is shaken, resulting in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Even a minor car accident can cause a concussion.
Concussion is generally considered a mild TBI, but still has very serious effects. Symptoms can include headache, confusion, nausea and vomiting. You may experience a lack of coordination and memory problems. Other symptoms of a brain injury can include sleep problems, mood changes and excessive fatigue. You may also suffer from post-concussion syndrome (PCS), which occurs when symptoms continue after the average recovery period.
It’s important to diagnose a brain injury as quickly as possible. A doctor may assess you using the Glasgow Coma Scale and order a CT scan or MRI. Treatment for mild brain injuries typically includes rest and medication. Some people may need therapy to regain physical and cognitive skills. In cases of severe brain injury, surgery may be needed.
A car accident concussion or other brain injury can affect you physically, emotionally and financially. You may not be able to work or take part in your usual activities. Medical expenses can add up quickly and become overwhelming.
Call the lawyer with a long track record of results
If a negligent driver caused the accident that left you injured, you deserve financial compensation, but negligent drivers often don’t accept responsibility for causing a crash. They may deny doing anything wrong – even if they were speeding, driving recklessly, texting or falling asleep at the wheel.
Don’t expect much help from the insurance companies. They are always concerned about money. They try to keep their profits as high as possible by keeping payments as low as possible. They may question your diagnosis of concussion or other type of brain injury, or the need for certain types of treatment.
