Have you or someone you loved suffered a head injury in a car accident? One of the most common injuries in a serious car accident is a head injury. The forces involved in a car accident tend to severely affect the head and neck as the body reacts to the impact. Impacts from the side can lead to an impact with the frame of the car, support beams or the window next to the victim. Head on and rear-end impact accidents can often result in open-head and closed-head injuries including traumatic brain injury or TBI. If you or a family member suffer a head injury in a car accident it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced injury attorney.
Head injuries can be quite severe, and victims of skull fractures and traumatic brain injury can require long-term care and even modification to their homes. My name is Rivers Morrell, and after more than 40 years of experience as a personal injury attorney I can tell you that these cases require expertise and skill to ensure that the maximum financial recovery is achieved for the client. Severe head injuries may require a “Life Care Plan” that provides for ongoing medical attention, and modifications to the home of the patient as well as medical supplies and hardware.
Head injury in car accidents is often under-diagnosed as it may take weeks or months for symptoms to fully manifest in these cases. Unfortunately, many accident victims who suffer a head injury do not realize that they have lost consciousness, or that the forces of the accident have injured their brain. This is why it is important to seek immediate medical treatment following an accident to ensure that an experienced medical professional can provide tests for concussion, brain injury and other symptoms that may not yet be noticeable to the patient.
