My mom was in a car accident and hit her head on the doorframe. It wasn’t much of a hit, but the doctor said she might experience traumatic brain injury symptoms that get worse over time. Should she talk to a personal injury lawyer?

The doctor is correct. Many people who have been involved in vehicle accidents do experience head trauma. They may lose consciousness right away or seem fine only to develop symptoms later. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are often complex injuries.

Many people do not realize that a hit to the head, whether mild or not, has the potential to result in long-term health issues. The more severe the head trauma, the more serious the disabilities that may accompany it.

It would be a good idea to speak to an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney and find out what your mom’s legal rights are, how TBI may affect your her, what she may expect as she recovers and what you may expect to receive in compensation in a settlement or as the result of a jury verdict.
