Did your accident or wreck result in a head injury?
If so, did you even know? Many times, symptoms of brain injuries are obvious: loss of consciousness, headaches, dizziness, or blurred vision or speech. But many times, the symptoms aren't so obvious.
Austin Brain Injury Attorney
Were you in an accident? Do you have trouble remembering things or coming up with words since then?
Or has your personality changed? Are you short with your spouse or children?
Or do you feel less coordinated and more clumsy?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you might have suffered a brain injury in your accident or wreck. And the scariest thing is, you might not have even noticed it.
Car wrecks and slip and fall accidents are two of the leading causes of head injuries. And yet, many times, these injuries go undiagnosed because they aren't obvious, particularly to the person with the injury.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a wreck or accident, keep an eye out for these symptoms to make sure that you get the care you need.
I understand the need for this first hand. For years, I've been able to help clients with head injuries. But in February 2014, I understood the problems a lot better. Because in February, my 11 year old son suffered a concussion.
Fortunately, my son is now okay, though he missed all or part of four weeks of school with his injuries. But just going through his ordeal, I have a better sense of the effect that head injuries have on victims and their loved ones.
I understand what it's like to sit and wait for a CT scan to see if there is a brain bleed.
I understand what it's like for you or your child to have headaches and not be able to participate in most activities.
I understand what it's like wondering whether your brain has healed or not.
I understand what it's like worrying about the long-term consequences of a head injury.
And I think that improved understanding makes me an even better advocate and lawyer for brain and head injury cases.
