Columbia Personal Injury Lawyer > Columbia Car Accident Concussion Lawyer

Columbia Car Accident Concussion Lawyer

Concussions are a common car accident injury, leaving motorists with pain and disabilities which can last for months. At The Stanley Law Group, our team is dedicated to promoting the wellbeing of our clients. We can file a personal injury claim with the driver who is responsible for the accident. Call us if you’d like to talk with a Columbia car accident concussion lawyer about your accident and the legal rights you have.

How Do You Suffer a Concussion?

This is a relatively mild traumatic brain injury which millions of people suffer in the U.S. each year. Typically, a person suffers a concussion when they strike their head on something or their head shakes so violently the brain slides around inside the skull. This motion can twist and tear brain tissue, including axons which transmit neurological signals. As a result, a person suffers various impairments because of brain damage.

In a car wreck, our clients usually suffer a concussion when they strike their head on the steering wheel or inside of the car. It’s also possible to smack your head against a passenger. In other cases, you’ll suffer a concussion at the same time you suffer whiplash.

You might not immediately know whether you have suffered a concussion. Pay attention to the most common symptoms:

  • Painful headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering details
  • Loss of balance or coordination
  • Dizziness
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Depression or mood swings

For most of our clients, rest is the only method of recovery. There’s no pill or surgical procedure which can heal the brain. The healing process happens slowly over several months.

It’s critical to avoid a second concussion, which could have life-threatening consequences. Recovering from a second concussion is much harder, and your symptoms can be much stronger. Your doctor will recommend resting at home. Many people cannot work because they need to avoid electronic devices like computers or phones. Difficulty concentrating makes it hard for many people to return to work.

As you can imagine, concussions are expensive injuries. While stuck at home, our clients lose out on income or wages. They can also struggle with pain. Other expenses include the cost of doctor’s visits, diagnostic tests, and medication for sleep disorders or depression. Physical pain and emotional distress also warrant compensation from the defendant. Our team will fight for meaningful financial compensation after your accident.
