Head Injuries Most Commonly Suffered in Oklahoma Car Accidents

By Car Accident Help on June 7, 2016

Car accidents are terrifying for everyone involved, and can cause numerous types of injuries. Brain or head injuries, however, can often be the most severe and mysterious.

Even in a minor collision, the head and brain are often left exposed, and any driver involved should seek medical attention right away in case of internal bleeding or a concussion.

At the time of an accident, a concussion can seem insignificant considering the severity of other injuries typically associated with car accidents, but they shouldn’t be taken lightly. They can also be tricky to diagnose, as signs of a concussion are often not noticed until days or even weeks after the event.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) can also occur in a car accident, and is the result of any force that breaks or penetrates the skull—this can include hitting your head on the steering wheel or windshield. TBIs can even occur without the blunt force of your head striking an object. In the case of a car accident, the sheer force of the vehicle stopping can cause the brain to collide with the hard interior of the skull. This occurs because as the head comes to a complete stop, the brain continues its forward momentum until it is stopped by the front of the skull.

When a head injury does occur, medical costs can increase in a hurry. MRI and CT scans are not cheap, and it is important to consider your legal options when facing the hefty sum the hospital will surely show you shortly after recovery. These expenses do not even include the cost of fixing or replacing your vehicle, and can look a bit overwhelming if you don’t know your options.

If you’ve suffered a head injury due to a car accident that you did not cause, you can seek financial retribution for the injuries involved. The compensation received will be the result of medical expenses, lost income, or pain and suffering. The first two are the most common, as it’s easier to put a mathematical sum on the amount of money lose in income while injured or the medical expenses accrued during that time period.

Regardless, it’s important to have a good lawyer on your side. If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury in a car accident, call Car Accident Help for a free consultation at (800) 539-0652.
