Traumatic Brain Injury from Auto Accidents – What You Need to Know

Going to The Hospital After Your Car AccidentAll auto accidents come with an inherent risk of a range of injuries. One of the most serious and most common types sustained in a wreck is a traumatic brain injury. Along with the potential lifelong damages from a TBI, the symptoms are often not apparent immediately following an accident.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a traumatic brain injury from an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Here’s what you need to know about these injury claims.

Seek Medical Attention

Depending on the type and severity of brain injury, symptoms could take anywhere from days to weeks to appear. Should you notice any changes, either physical or psychological, consult your physician. A neurological or brain imaging scan can help identify damage and diagnosis of an injury.

Compile Evidence

Once you’ve sought proper medical attention, you will want to compile all evidence regarding your case if you are considering the merit of a liability claim. Evidence should focus on the accident and its impact on your life, so plan to include…

  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Photographs
  • Witness statements (Accident and lifestyle)

Consult an Attorney

Once you’ve gathered all the information regarding your case, seek the advice of an attorney experienced in traumatic brain injury cases. Their experience, combined with your evidence and testimony, can help them recommend if you should pursue compensation for your injury. Depending on your case, you may be entitled to funds for medical expenses, loss of income, reduced quality of life, or pain and suffering.
