If you have been involved in a car accident or a collision with a truck in Louisville it is very possible you hit your head as a result of the forces at impact. It is important to know brain injuries are not always obvious after a car accident and can take weeks or months to present symptoms of injury. This is why it is so important to see a physician within 24 hours of any accident for a thorough examination. You may not have lost consciousness, and may not even realize your head made contact with the frame of the car, the steering wheel or any other internal obstacle. The forces associated with a motor vehicle accident are quite severe and it is far better to be safe than sorry.
At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington we have a special interest in Severe TBI or Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) resulting from an accident. One of HLH’s partners is a member of the Brain Injury Foundation, a non-profit organization of doctors, lawyers and other professionals who work together to learn more about brain injuries and how to improve the life of those who experience a brain injury.
Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI can be mild or severe. There are thousands and thousands of cases each year where an accident victim thought they were fine after an accident. They may have dismissed what happened as a few bumps and bruises. After a few weeks, their spouse or family start to notice subtle changes in their behavior. Accident victims may experience challenges with concentration, multi-tasking or sequencing the steps required to complete nominal activity such as grocery shopping. This is why it is so important to see a doctor after any car accident or motor vehicle collision.
