Car accidents and brain injury

Almost every Cary resident will experience a car accident during their life. Fortunately, most car accidents are just fender benders. But, thousands of families are affected by a serious car crashes each year. One of the more critical injury a person can face is a brain injury.

A brain injury from a car accident is serious. A brain injury can range from a mild concussion to damaged brain tissues from a puncture wound. There are many symptoms of a brain injury. They can include memory loss, confusion, headaches, dizziness and personality changes, among others. Brain injuries often require long-term convalescence and treatment can be expensive.

Brain injuries that occur because of a car accident can result in bruising, tearing or swelling of the brain. Bruising or a concussion occurs when the brain hits the inside of the skill. Tearing can occur when an impact results in tissue damage throughout the brain. Tearing can impact the nervous system and cause serious impairment. Brain swelling is common after an accident and significant swelling can result in impairment or death.

If a person is involved in a car accident and suffers a serious brain injury, their families may wonder how they will afford the incredible medical expenses. If the accident is caused by a negligent driver, it is important to hold the driver accountable. An attorney who specializes in personal injury can help an accident victim. They can investigate the cause of the accident and hold the negligent driver responsible for their mistake. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.
