Delayed onset brain injuries can be life-altering

Many people who have been involved in a collision in a car feel relatively fine after the incident. Although they may feel shaky due to the shock of the crash, they can feel the need to reassure their loved ones that they are not injured, and want to return home as soon as possible.

Unfortunately however, some injuries that occur as a result of the impact can take some time before they take effect. Perhaps the most dangerous of these delayed onset injuries are traumatic brain injuries. These can be devastating and possibly life threatening. This is why anyone involved in a car accident should get themselves assessed in a hospital even if they feel completely well.

What are the symptoms of a delayed onset traumatic brain injury?

A person who is suffering from a delayed onset traumatic brain injury may start to complain of a severe headache in the hours or days after the initial incident. Additionally, they may experience dizziness, nausea or vomiting, as well as problems with speech. If a person experiences any of these symptoms after a car accident, it is vital that they seek immediate medical attention.

How can I make sure that my loved one gets the damages that they truly deserve?

Many people struggle to get the damages that they deserve from their insurance company after suffering a delayed onset traumatic brain injury. Often the long-term effects of a brain injury can be severely underestimated, even by medical professionals. A patient may be able to function in day-to-day life, but they may have changed personalities completely as a result of the injury. Their family may feel that they have lost the person they used to know.

Taking action early and not compromising for a lesser settlement is the best way to approach personal injury claims after a car accident in Kentucky. It is important that all aspects of the injury are taken into account, from the entire cost of medical care and lost income, to the psychological effect the injury has had on the victim and their loved ones.

Make sure that you take action promptly to get the damages that you deserve after a devastating car accident.
