A car crash or other accident that results in trauma to the head can cause a brain injury, even when there is no outward sign of damage. The person who is injured may not even realize (or may attempt to deny) that brain damage has occurred. Family members are often the first to notice that their loved one is not the same after an accident.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, we represent victims of mild and severe brain injuries in accidents. Our attorneys have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for our clients, including $6 million for a man who suffered a brain injury after the vehicle he was driving was rear-ended by a bus. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
What Are the Symptoms of a Brain Injury?
In the aftermath of an accident, the family of the victim may overlook troubling symptoms, thinking that they are caused by medication or pain. However, those symptoms could be an indication that their loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Symptoms may include:
- Personality changes such as irritability
- Difficulty following directions
- Dizziness or nausea
- Sensitivity to sound or light
- Insomnia or sleeping more than usual
While some brain injuries go away with time, others may be permanent. As your attorneys, our job is to ensure that your loved one's condition is properly diagnosed and treated.
