Many people underestimate the force of a car accident until they experience one firsthand. In addition to the property damage, an unexpected jolt to the neck or blow to the head can cause lifelong disabilities or worse.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, car crashes are responsible for more than 14 percent of all brain injuries in the United States. A traumatic brain injury can have one or several symptoms. WebMD reminds readers that it is critical to see a physician if they notice persistent headaches, dizziness or confusion after a wreck.
Treating a brain injury is often exorbitantly expensive. Some patients require multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation; others can never return to their career or enjoy the lifestyle they had before the accident. This is where an accident lawyer may be able to help.
