A concussion after a Detroit crash is a serious injury, but it is often undiagnosed and thus goes untreated. This can have disabling and debilitating, long-term effects on a car accident victim’s cognitive functioning. In some case, an untreated concussion can be life-threatening.
A concussion can be caused when a victim’s head hits something during a crash or when his or her head is violently thrown forward and backward due to force of the crash.
Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals can miss the signs of a concussion. Frequently, the signs and symptoms of a concussion are mistakenly attributed to other injuries that a car crash victim has suffered.
Talking to an experienced personal injury lawyer after you have suffered a concussion is very important because your attorney will help you get the benefits you need to pay for your medical bills and lost wages and the compensation from the at-fault driver that you are entitled to for your pain and suffering.
