A car accident may cause you an invisible injury: A brain injury

You managed to walk away from your car accident not long ago, and you couldn't be more grateful that you are still alive. Perhaps the other driver struck your motor vehicle due to distracted driving, thus leaving you with injuries that you may not have been aware of in the immediate aftermath of the crash.

The fact is that not all of your injuries may be visible. The accident might have also caused you an unseen injury -- a traumatic brain injury. Fortunately, you have the right to seek compensation for this type of injury if someone else's negligence caused you to suffer.

The reality of traumatic brain injuries

Perhaps the impact of your recent car crash knocked you out when you were at the crash scene. Yes, you were relatively coherent shortly afterward. In fact, you exchanged insurance and driver's license details with the driver who hit you. However, you could have still suffered a brain injury without even realizing it.

Here is a glimpse at some brain injury symptoms you should be on the lookout for after a motor vehicle accident:

  • Memory issues
  • Depression
  • Communication/speech issues
  • Double vision
  • Trouble watching television or reading
  • Emotional issues, including anger or irritability
  • Having trouble falling asleep
  • Fatigue
  • Problems with planning out your day or organizing activities
  • Attention challenges
  • Headaches

If you experience any of these symptoms after your motor vehicle accident, it would behoove you to have a medical doctor examine you right away. This is because your brain could have slammed against your skull during the accident, thus causing you brain damage that impacts your emotions, thinking and behavior. Your doctor will assess your situation and get you on the path to receiving the treatment you may need.

Your legal rights after your injury accident

In addition to seeking medical help following an accident that causes you brain injuries, it is within your rights to file a personal injury claim against the driver who caused your injury. If you can establish his or her liability in the accident, based on a showing of negligence, you may receive a monetary award in an Ohio civil court.

Your award might help you to cover your medical bills. It may also help you to cover the loss of wages and any other losses resulting from your potentially life-altering motor vehicle accident.
