What Is a Concussion?

A concussion is a medical term for an injury to the brain often caused by a blow to the head. In terms of car accidents, concussions often occur when someone’s head strikes the dashboard or another part of the car. A car accident concussion can also occur if someone’s head is violently thrashed forward and backward during the accident.

Symptoms of a concussion often include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sleepiness

If something doesn’t seem right after a car accident, seek immediate medical treatment. It’s also important to realize that some symptoms may not appear right away. So, if your accident occurred several days ago and you’re just now starting to experience some of these symptoms, see a doctor right away. You could have a serious concussion.

  • What if I can’t come to your office?

    That’s not a problem. We understand that an accident may have left you injured and that traveling may be difficult or impossible. We care about your well-being and comfort. So if you can’t come to our office, we will come to you. One of our lawyers can meet you at your home, in your hospital room or anywhere else that is convenient.

    We’ll review the details of your case and ask you some questions. Then we can review your legal options and give you an idea about what to expect. We can also answer any questions that you have about your case.

  • How long will it take to resolve my case?

    It depends on many factors, such as the complexity of your case and how much money is at stake. In general, a case may take anywhere between a few months to a year. If your case goes to trial, it can take even longer.

    Insurance companies try to delay the resolution of a case as long as possible. They don’t want to pay you the compensation you deserve. They are hoping that the longer they delay your case, the more likely it will be that you will give up or accept a lower settlement offer. We will guide you through the process every step of the way.

  • Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?

    Soon after your accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company. They are offering you a settlement! It may not be for as much as you were hoping, but they are promising quick payment. This offer will fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered. The insurance company just wants to save money.

    You should never agree to any settlement unless you have first discussed the offer with an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer. You can get a much better settlement when an insurance company knows you have a personal injury attorney willing to go to trial on your behalf.

Why Are Car Accident Cases Involving Concussions or Tbis So Complicated?

Car accidents that result in a concussion or another type of TBI often turn out to be very complicated legal cases. Some of the reasons why include:

  • The driver who caused your accident denies doing anything wrong.
  • The at-fault driver claims you caused the accident.
  • The other driver’s insurance company denies your accident claim.
  • The family member who sustained a head injury can’t remember the car accident.

There are so many different legal issues that can come up when dealing with a head injury caused by a car accident. That’s why you need our legal team on your side, fighting for your rights. We know how to handle complex cases. We know what questions to ask and what evidence to look for. We often frequently work with experts who can evaluate your case in detail. If necessary, we may even recommend seeing a medical specialist who can further evaluate your head injury. There’s a reason why our lawyers are highly respected throughout the Rio Grande Valley. We go the extra mile in pursuit of justice.
