Many of the most frustrating, and potentially severe injuries from motor vehicle wrecks aren’t the bruises or scrapes, but the lingering internal injuries. Be aware of injuries that can’t be visualized or may not be so obvious – often affecting the head, neck, or back – some of which can be difficult to diagnose, such as the following.
- Head Injury/Concussion
- Neck Injuries (Whiplash)
- Back Injuries (Herniated Discs, Cervical Injuries)
- Internal Bleeding
- Soft Tissue Damage
Keep mindful of your symptoms or changes in how you feel post-wreck. It’s crucial you see a medical professional right away after a motor vehicle accident to ensure you don’t have internal bleeding, head injury, neck injury, or other “hidden” injuries.
If not treated properly and timely, these long-lasting injuries can become even more serious. If your injury was caused due to someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, loss of function, and other costs that resulted from your personal injury accident.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be among the most difficult diagnosis’ one can receive. Often, this type of injury can be life-altering, making previously simple tasks either much more difficult or impossible. Brain injuries are commonly a result of negligence, resulting in the need for a personal injury attorney. If you have a TBI or another head injury due to a personal injury accident, contact a brain injury lawyer at Cory Watson Attorneys.
