Sometimes the most simple, apparently straightforward motor vehicle collision can have dire consequences. Many times the significance of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle collision are not immediately apparent, even to the injured person. Sometimes a motor vehicle collision results in a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). A personal injury attorney with experience evaluating and litigating claims involving traumatic brain injuries can assist in evaluating your particular circumstances.

Many people that have sustained brain injuries live with cognitive deficits and disruptions for the rest of their lives. One of the more troubling aspects of a brain injury is that the injured person appears entirely fine and normal externally, but suffers cognitive deficits and personality changes that make their day-to-day affairs difficult, if not impossible. Also troubling is the fact that often MTBI may be overlooked following a motor vehicle collision if significant physical injuries are sustained, such as broken bones, lacerations, dislocations, etc.

There are many physical symptoms suggesting the possibility of a brain injury following a car accident including vomiting, nausea, dizziness, vertigo, headache,blurred vision, disturbance in sleep, fatigue and lethargy. Some of the cognitive deficits a person who has suffered a brain injury may experience include short attention span, concentration difficulties, memory difficulties, and speech and language concerns. Many times there are behavioral and personality changes noticed by friends and family members, including irritability, unusual frustration and difficulty expressing emotions.

We have handled numerous cases involving claims of brain injury. In one successful case, the firm's Client declined medical treatment at the scene following a significant collision. Six days later she first sought treatment with her primary care provider complaining of headaches, vertigo, and sensitivity to light. After consulting with a number of friends and family members who uniformly indicated the client "was just not the same" after the car accident, our firm soon after filed suit. The defendant's insurance carrier initially offered less than the total medical bills incurred claiming that the refusal of immediate medical care at the scene, lack of visit to the emergency room, and six-day gap between the collision and her first medical treatment meant there was not a substantial injury, and any injury sustained was not related to the wreck. After filing suit and conducting extensive discovery, the case resolved for the total insurance policy limits available.
