Traumatic Brain Injuries Resulting From A Missouri Car Accident

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are one of the most severe types of injuries. These injuries are sustained when a significant impact occurs to your head. These are often seen after auto accidents when a person hits their head on the window, windshield or is ejected from the vehicle. Even a seemingly small concussion can cause a brain injury resulting in the reduced capacity of your brain to function. People most often see this injury present itself in difficulty with memory, computation or concentration after an accident. All too often, these injuries are chalked up to ‘getting older’ when they were initially caused by an auto accident and we never properly diagnosed.

Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injury

Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:
  • Headaches or neck pain that persists for long periods of time
  • Decrease in the speed of your thinking, remembering or making decisions
  • Easily irritable
  • Changes in personality
  • Getting lost or confused
  • Sudden erratic mood changes
  • Dizziness and loss of balance
  • Blurry vision 
  • Ringing in your ears
Traumatic brain injuries and other serious injuries can lead to countless future problems such as high healthcare costs and having to switch careers due to the inability to perform your job. Fighting for compensation for these types of future costs are pivotal in serious injury cases. Not only should you be compensated for the injuries, pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages you’ve endured, but also those you’ll endure in the future.

You may be wondering how such future losses are calculated. Doctors that specialize in serious injuries are trained to calculate future medical needs based on current injuries. Medical professionals are then tasked with determining the future medical costs along with loss of earnings you’ll likely endure due to these injuries. This evidence is then used to demand fair compensation.
