Common Brain Injuries Caused By Car Accidents

Posted by: Kemmy Law Firm

Some of the most devastating injuries that can be caused by a car accident include head and brain injuries. However, not all brain injuries are alike. There are various severity levels and different types. But those suffering from brain trauma because of a reckless driver and those caring for them should not have to deal with everything on their own.

If you or a loved one experienced a traumatic brain injury in a car accident, we understand the stress you are facing. By working with a car accident lawyer, you can reduce your anxiety and pursue the financial compensation you need.

Traumatic Brain Injuries are Common After a Car Accident

Head and brain injuries are common in car accidents because of the force against the body that is exerted in a wreck. When the head moves forward and back repeatedly or hits something hard, the brain can be slammed against the inside of the skull.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may be mild, moderate, or severe.

  • Mild TBIs often result in headache, nausea or vomiting, difficulty sleeping, ringing in the ears, or other mild symptoms.
  • Moderate to severe TBIs can result in persistent headache, repeated vomiting, seizures, dilation of pupils, clear fluids from the nose or ears, difficulty staying awake, loss of coordination, slurred speech, and other concerning symptoms.

If you are in a car accident and have any of these symptoms, even days after the crash, you should seek medical treatment right away.

Types of Brain Injuries You May Suffer in a Car Accident

Some common brain injuries that you should be aware of include:

  • Closed Head Injury – This occurs when there is no open skull fracture, but the brain suffers injury due to an impact.
  • Open Brain Injury – If the skull does fracture, the brain is open to injury and can be damaged by debris or part of the skull itself.
  • Frontal Lobe Injury – An injury to the front lobe of the brain can result in problems with cognitive skills, including emotions, memory, problem solving, and more. These injuries can also result in aggressive behavior or other changes in emotions.
  • Brain Bleeding or Hemorrhage – If you suffer bleeding of the brain, it can damage cells and result in additional harm to the brain.
  • Concussion – A concussion is a TBI caused when the brain strikes the inside of the skull. Although they are normally temporary, concussions can be severe and result in lasting damage.

How Kemmy Law Firm Can Help After a Brain Injury

Brain injuries often result in high medical bills, an inability to work, and the need to completely restructure your life to compensate for your TBI symptoms. You should be focused on healing and recovering – not dealing with insurance adjusters. Let Kemmy Law Firm handle the legal process and deal with the negligent party and their insurance company.

These large insurance companies know that TBI claims are often expensive to appropriately pay out. That means they have a vested interest in offering you less. We know the types of medical evidence that make TBI injuries hard to refute, how to make insurance companies offer what you will realistically need to recuperate, and are not afraid to take them to court to make sure.

With over 50 years of combined legal experience and millions recovered for our clients, we will handle every part of your claim and get what you are entitled to under the law.
