Traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and head injuries are some of the most serious car accident injuries you can sustain in a collision. Even relatively minor car accidents at low speeds can result in a severe head or brain injury because all it takes is one blow to the head to inflict serious and potentially life-altering brain damage.
These types of injuries commonly occur in crashes because of the jolting, violent nature of most car accidents. The sudden acceleration and deceleration involved in a crash can cause your brain to crash violently back and forth inside your skull, which can lead to bleeding (brain hemorrhage), bruising (brain contusion) or tearing of the brain (diffuse axonal injury).
You can sustain a brain injury by hitting your head on the steering wheel, dashboard, window, or any other part of your car during a collision. A blow to the head from a projectile or having a foreign object penetrate or fracture your skull can also result in a traumatic brain injury.
Common symptoms of concussions and other types of traumatic brain injuries include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss
- Problems concentrating
- Mood swings
- Speech impairments
- Blurry vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Loss of coordination
- Lack of balance
- Sleep problems
Enduring the symptoms of a concussion or any other traumatic brain injury can cause a lot of emotional distress, along with pain and suffering. Some brain injuries can also be fatal. Treatment for traumatic brain injuries may include rest, prescription medication, surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other types of rehabilitation.
If someone else was responsible for your head or brain injury, Tampa car accident lawyer Armando Edmiston can meet with you at your convenience, listen to what happened, talk about your legal options, answer your questions, and help you figure out what steps to take next.
How much is my brain injury claim worth?
The value of your brain injury claim will depend on the specific details of your case and the overall impact your brain injury has had on your life. No two cases are exactly the same, but in general you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses, including the cost of long-term care, rehab, surgery, therapy, prescriptions, etc.
- Lost wages from missed time at work
- Loss of earning capacity if you are no longer able to work
- Replacement services, such as housekeeping and childcare
- Pain and suffering/punitive damages
Some severe brain injuries result in irreversible brain damage that causes the victim to remain unresponsive and in a vegetative state. If you’re the family member of a brain injury victim who’s suffered permanent damage like this, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim.
