Dealing with a Traumatic Brain Injury? Why You Should Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
When you've been in a car accident, your life is never the same afterwards. Even if you're not physically injured, it can bring on anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms. Suffering a physical injury can mean you have to take time off work, incur high medical bills, and are not there to support your family as you normally would. A brain injury is very common and if this has happened to you or someone you love, you may want to contact a car accident lawyer to see what your rights are.
What Counts as a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury is classified as any brain dysfunction that occurs due to an outside force such as a violent blow to the head. This can happen if someone hits you, or if you are in a car accident and your head hits the dashboard, window, or windshield. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include headaches, confusion, blurry vision, memory loss, or difficulty concentrating. If the injury has happened to an infant they may express this through persistent crying or irritability.
What Happens When I Meet with a Car Accident Lawyer?
When you contact a car accident lawyer, they will schedule a time to meet with you and hear more about the accident. They will ask to see police records of the accident, proof of medical visits, and any documentation your doctor can provide about the traumatic brain injury. Be prepared to tell the lawyer about the occurring symptoms, what you've done to mitigate them, and your doctor's prognosis for your continued health.
What Happens When I Go to Court?
When the lawyer brings your case to court, he or she will tell the judge and jury about what happened to you, why the other driver was at fault, and explain what your doctor has to say about your condition and your future after having suffered this injury. If the jury believes that the other driver was at fault in your case, they will be required to compensate you for the agreed upon sum, which will typically include funds for medical bills, time off work, and any physical therapy or medications you are now taking.
