Most people think of whiplash and back strain as common injuries from car accidents, and they are. But the same jarring shock and impact that causes soft tissue injury can also cause brain injuries, ranging from the mild (concussions) to the severe. If you or a loved one has suffered brain trauma from an auto accident, it's important to retain an experienced Tampa accident attorney as soon as possible.
Concussions are a very mild form of brain trauma, but they can still have serious effects. Symptoms of a concussion can include fatigue, dizziness, slurred speech, memory loss, headaches, and more. If you think you may have a concussion, you should seek professional medical attention right away.
Signs of more serious brain injury from a Tampa auto accident can include seizures, vomiting, convulsions, slurred speech, numbness or tingling in extremities, and even the inability to wake up.
An experienced Tampa auto accident attorney understands that the effects of more serious brain trauma can last a lifetime, even if a person received medical attention right away. Some auto accident injuries can require surgery with long recovery times that take people out of work and leave them unable to pay bills. Other personal injury accidents can take years of treatment and physical therapy to recover from, leaving the victims in deep medical debt or unable to afford the care they need. And in the worst-case scenario, a car accident victim may never recover and require specialized care for the rest of their lives.
