Any kind of injury to your head is serious. If you are dealing with a car accident head injury, you want to be sure you have the best legal representation you can find. Never dismiss any injury to your head. Even though it might not hurt much at the time, it can have a long term impact on your day to day functioning and overall quality of life. A personal injury attorney will have the experience with the science and the law as is relates to head injuries caused by a serious car accident.
The amount of bleeding is not an indication of the extent of injury to your brain, scalp, or skull. It is the bruising or cracking of the skull that is an indication of damage. Even if your skull is not cracked, the brain might be seriously injured from the pressure of internal hemorrhaging. An opened skull also presents some of the worst, life threatening damage. At the time of a minor accident, you might not realize the severity of your injuries. However, 5% of head injuries lead to death, and permanent physical or emotional problems. That is why it is essential to be checked out thoroughly by a physician or emergency room staff. There might even be a delayed reaction before you experience symptoms such as blurred vision, amnesia, slurred speech, nausea, or a metallic taste in your mouth. Anything like that requires immediate medical attention.
A competent personal injury attorney will explain that each case has to be evaluated on its own merits. Although there are certain common factors that determine financial compensation such as medical expenses and loss of wages, there is no formula that is always used. In spite of what an insurer might want you to believe, every car accident head injury will be judged on its own impact and you will be compensated according to your situation.
