Car Accident Brain Injury

Brain Injury in Car Accidents

Auto accidents are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States, affecting an estimated 280,000 crash victims annually. This accounts for roughly 20% of all brain injury cases.

If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury after a car wreck, the experienced lawyers at Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter can help you seek the justice and compensation you rightfully deserve under the law.​

Should I Hire a Brain Injury Attorney?

image of doctor reviewing a brain injury brain scan Over the course of a lifetime, a traumatic brain injury can cost millions of dollars. In fact, some studies estimate that the average expense of a traumatic brain injury, from the time of the injury until death, costs an average of $3 million, although many TBI injuries can result in even higher costs. When facing immense expenses like these, it is crucial to seek the counsel of an experienced TBI lawyer.

If you suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Ongoing care and therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced ability to earn a wage
  • Pain and suffering

The best way to determine if an attorney can help you is to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your case. During your initial case evaluation, our attorneys will assess the merits of your case and explain your legal options.

Symptoms of a Brain Injury After a Car Accident

Brain injuries in traffic accidents do not require impact. Any violent or uncontrolled head movement can harm the brain, causing bruising and tearing.

Symptoms of TBI include:

  • Clear fluid draining from the ears or nose
  • Asymmetrical or irregular pupil dilation
  • Memory loss or confusion
  • Loss of consciousness

The signs of TBI aren’t always immediately apparent. It is important to seek medical attention after a car wreck to determine the true extent of your injuries.
