What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Head Injuries/Concussions Attorney

Car accidents are a leading cause for a variety of serious injuries. Among the most grave are head injuries, especially those that affect the brain. The brain is a relatively vulnerable organ, and damage to any part of it can have severe consequences in a person’s life. Even relatively minor injuries like concussions can have long and painful recovery periods.

Jacksonville head injury attorney Don Guthrie, PA, understands the frustration of suffering a serious injury due to someone else’s negligence. Our law offices are committed to helping car accident victims win the compensation they need for medical treatment. To learn how we can help you, contact our offices at 904-296-1088.

Concussions: Symptoms and Prognosis

The most common traumatic brain injury is a concussion, which is caused when a strong force causes the brain to slide against the skull. Symptoms may be experienced immediately, or may not be apparent for hours or days. If you have experienced a blow to the head during a car accident, it is always a good idea to seek medical attention, just to be on the safe side.

There is currently no cure for concussions. Patients have no choice but to wait for the symptoms to go away. This can take a few weeks, months, or possibly even years. In the meantime, patients are left with potentially debilitating problems such as:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Vision problems

If you have received a concussion from a car accident, you may have grounds for a Jacksonville bodily injury claim to cover your medical expenses.

Other Head Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are never a simple problem. They can be difficult to detect until the symptoms become severe, and are not always treatable. Potential long-term effects of a severe head injury include cognitive impairment, coma, seizures, memory loss, or emotional disturbances. Living with these difficult problems generally requires costly long-term therapy.
