Signs that you may have a head injury after an accident

Many people in California are injured in auto accidents and do not realize it until well after the fact. Whiplash is probably the most common of these internal injuries that do not manifest until later. However, the same result can occur with internal head injuries that begin with mild to moderate pain. They typically occur when the victim suffered some form of trauma to the head but had no particularly bad symptoms or pain at the time of the incident. These occurrences are called post-concussion injuries, and they can lead to a condition that intensifies as time goes on.

Recognizing there is a problem

Just because a passenger is still mobile after an accident does not necessarily mean there is no internal physical damage. Many individuals who suffer mild to moderate head trauma do not seek medical attention until the symptoms worsen. The truth is that most head injuries actually worsen when the injured parties procrastinate seeking treatment for concussion injuries. This can also give respondent insurance providers a defense for reducing claim values.

Symptoms of post-concussion trauma

While the specific injuries associated with post-concussion trauma can vary significantly, the symptoms will often be similar. This is not an exhaustive list, but the primary associated difficulties can include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Insomnia
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of concentration
  • Light sensitivity
  • Tinnitus
  • Anxiety

Head injury compensation

Compensatory damages for head injuries can be central to any accident claim, especially when there are both physical and mental anguish elements in the claim. The physical injury alone will often result in long-term implications that the victim must deal with through life, and the inability to cope mentally after the fact can be extensive as well. California personal injury attorneys understand this dilemma with concussion injuries, so they may work diligently in maximizing the amount when settling head injury claims.
