Get a head tart on your claim after an accident-related TBI

Head injuries are one of the most common types of car accident injuries, and they can range in severity and impact. You may have suffered a concussion or other type of minor head injury, yet the impact of these can be quite significant for you. Even a minor traumatic brain injury can have a major impact on your life.

Some California car accident victims find that symptoms of brain injuries do not show up until days or weeks after the initial accident. In some cases, symptoms appear and linger for an extended amount of time, sometimes affecting a person for months. If you suffered even a minor brain injury in a car accident, you have no time to lose in seeking the full protection of your rights.

Do not underestimate the impact of your injury

Just because a doctor diagnosed you with a minor TBI does not mean that you will not suffer from effects that are quite severe. Your recovery could be lengthy, and you may need assistance in order to deal with the symptoms of your TBI. It can be helpful to understand the following about these types of injuries:

  • When the brain endures a traumatic event, the force of the impact can slam the organ into the skull, resulting in an injury.
  • Sometimes, these injuries can actually change the way the brain processes information.
  • Even a minor impact can result in physiological changes to the brain and cognitive issues for the victim.

Individuals who suffer from a minor injury may not expect serious side effects and an extensive recovery, but every case is different. Some victims may recover quickly from their TBI, while others may experience issues well after the initial accident. Some of the most common side effects of a minor TBI include persistent headaches, dizziness, trouble concentrating and problems with memory.

How can you pursue a full recovery?

Recovering from a minor brain injury is not easy, and it could take a long time. As you work to get better, you will need medical care and various types of support. Even if your symptoms did not appear immediately after your car accident, that does not mean you do not have a rightful claim to compensation.

As soon as possible after an accident or after the appearance of TBI symptoms, you may find it useful to seek a complete evaluation of your case. It is possible that you have a rightful claim to financial compensation for your medical care and other accident-related losses.
