Birmingham car wreck attorneys who take head injuries seriously
Head and brain injuries that victims suffer in collisions are serious and demand strong legal action to hold the negligent driver accountable. Head and brain injury victims can suffer from severe pain and emotional distress, along with other symptoms that greatly reduce their quality of life. Head and brain injuries can also force someone to accrue astronomical medical expenses and lose wages from missed time at work. Sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a car accident is common, as it is the result of a forceful blow to the head. This force results in brain dysfunction and can also cause bleeding, swelling, tearing or bruising of the brain. Common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:
- Losing consciousness for any period of time
- Leaking clear fluid from the ear or nose
- Loss of memory
- Slurring of speech
- Blurry vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Lack of coordination/dizziness
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Sleep problems
- Irritability/mood swings
Some of the most common traumatic brain injuries that people suffer in car wrecks are concussions, which are technically classified as a “mild” TBI. While they may be called mild, concussions should be taken seriously. Concussion symptoms are mostly the same as the symptoms for a TBI, and if you show signs of any of these symptoms you should seek the attention of a medical professional right away. Multiple concussions can cause permanent brain damage.
Let a Birmingham car accident lawyer take on your head injury claim
Hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized every year for traumatic brain injuries, and more than half of those people sustain their TBI in a car accident. Tragically, these injuries were most likely caused by the negligence of another driver. Whether they were texting and driving, drunk driving, distracted driving or asleep at the wheel ─ the person responsible for causing your car wreck needs to take responsibility and be held accountable for their actions.
If you suffered a head or brain injury in a car accident, the last thing you should be thinking about is how you’re going to pay your mounting medical bills or how you’re going to make up the income you lost from missed time at work. You shouldn’t have to worry about dealing with the insurance company and their insulting settlement offers that won’t even come close to covering all your accident-related expenses.
