Are concussions considered a serious injury?
Concussions are classified as “mild” relative to other types of traumatic brain injuries because they are typically not life-threatening, but they should still be considered a serious injury. There is no such thing as a minor brain injury. Common symptoms of concussions include:
- Trouble concentrating
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Loss of balance
- Lack of coordination
- Vision problems
- Speech impairments
- Trouble with sleep
In some rare cases, a concussion victim will suffer from post-concussion syndrome where the symptoms of their concussion last for weeks or months after their accident. This can contribute to physical pain and emotional distress.
Can you get a concussion from a minor car accident?
Even relatively minor car accidents that take place at low speeds can cause concussions and other brain injuries. A concussion occurs when your brain crashes violently back and forth inside your skull and causes bruising, bleeding and tearing of the brain. While hitting your head on the steering wheel, dashboard, window, or another part of your vehicle during an accident can certainly cause a concussion, contact is not actually required. Having your head and neck jerked back and forth violently is enough to cause a concussion as the brain moves back and forth and hits the inside of the skull. Because concussions can have delayed onset symptoms, it’s always a good idea to get checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible after a car accident, even if you feel fine.
How much compensation do you get for a concussion?
There is no set amount of financial compensation you’re entitled to after suffering a concussion in a car accident, though you may be eligible to receive compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages from missed time at work
- Loss of earning capacity
- Punitive damages (common in drunk driving or hit-and-run crashes)
The best way to figure out how much your case might be worth is to talk with an experienced lawyer who knows how to maximize the value of your claim.
