Your brain is one of the most sensitive organs in your body. It can suffer an injury, even in a minor car accident. Some victims with a concussion find they have permanent brain damage. The consequences of injuring your brain will vary from accident to accident, which is why it is crucial to hire an experienced Ohio brain injury attorney.
At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, our legal team can help you assess how serious your head injury is and help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Please do not make the mistake of assuming you can tell how severe a head injury is by looking at it without a doctor’s assessment.
A head injury is either closed or open. Closed head injuries do not break the skull, whereas an open head injury is a penetrating one. Something breaks through the skull and enters your brain. Some of the most common types of brain injuries we see in Ohio car accidents include:
Diagnosing a brain injury after an accident is imperative. You should seek treatment immediately following an accident, especially if your head made a direct impact against something.
Since brain injuries are not something you can see when looking at a person, you need to monitor yourself for symptoms after an accident. Watch for signs such as:
If you experience any combination of these symptoms, it is imperative to seek medical treatment right away.
If you sustained a head injury after an auto accident in Ohio, please contact Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC today to schedule an initial consultation. Let us protect your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve.
