Car accidents can cause invisible injuries

If you experience a car accident, you should absolutely go get proper medical treatment as soon as possible. Even if you do not think that you experienced any serious injuries, the accident may leave you with a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can wreck havoc in many areas of your life.

These kinds of injuries can happen to anyone, but in America they are often overlooked in victims who do not speak fluent English or find it difficult to fully communicate with their medical care providers.

Many car accidents include some kind of blow to the head, which can shake your brain inside the skull and cause a variety of problems that may not show themselves until days or weeks after the accident.

If you experienced a car accident, then you should also consult with an experienced attorney who can help you understand the details of the law that may apply to your circumstances. This will also keep your rights protected while you recover from your injuries.

Mild TBIs are serious injuries

It may seem as though a mild TBI is not a big problem, but this is completely untrue. A mild TBI is only mild when compared to severe TBI, which can kill you, paralyze you or leave you in a coma.

A mild TBI will not leave you dead, paralyzed, or permanently unconscious, but it is still a brain injury.

A mild TBI can have many symptoms, and you might wait for several days or weeks after the accident to start feeling them.

Some of the most obvious symptoms might be ongoing headaches and nausea, or even seizures. These are serious conditions that can make daily living very difficult or make it impossible to work your job, especially if you work around large machinery or do manual labor for a living.

Beyond those rather visible symptoms, a mild TBI may mean that you have trouble thinking clearly, or cannot understand words the way you used to when talking with others. You may also get very frustrated easily and find it impossible to focus on simple tasks.

You may even experience some changes in your personality that drive away your close relationships. Especially when you have a close community, this kind of injury can be devastating.

On top of all this, the symptoms may persist for more than a year after the accident. Anyone who has difficulty concentrating on tasks or understanding conversations for a year will find it very difficult to maintain a job or relate to their family.

Clearly, a mild TBI is often a major injury.

Get the help you need to get well

Many victims of mild TBIs suffer tremendously because they do not get the help they need to get better. You deserve to have your situation evaluated by an experienced attorney who understands the details of the law.

With proper legal help, you can rest assured that your rights remain protected while you pursue justice and get the medical help you need to live a healthy, happy life.
