Recovering From Head Injuries After a Miramar Car Accident

Each year, Miramar car accidents cause serious head injuries. For Miramar head injury patients, the road to recovery can be long and difficult. These types of injuries often cause emotional upset, lost mobility, memory problems, cognitive issues, and other frightening symptoms. Head injuries are also a leading cause of fatalities in Miramar truck accidents and car accidents. When the head is crushed against or hits a hard surface, the soft jelly-like mass of the brain crashes against the inside of the skull, causing bruising and bleeding. In some instances, the injuries are so severe that the patient does not recover. If you have sustained a head injury after a Miramar traffic accident, you will want to aid your recovery by:

1) Keeping a journal of any symptoms you may have. In some cases, you may not notice symptoms of a head injury until you keep track of symptoms. If you do have a brain injury, keeping detailed notes of your symptoms can help your doctor with diagnosis and treatment. If you decide to file a legal claim in your case, your notes can help your attorney develop a strong case on your behalf.

2) Getting medical attention, even if you think that you do not have a head injury. One of the traumatic things about brain injuries is that in many cases patients do not realize that they have been injured until it is too late. Getting prompt medical treatment can literally save your life. A doctor can examine you to determine whether you have a concussion or another type of injury. If you have been in a Miramar traffic accident and have hit your head hard, consult with a doctor as soon as possible to get a thorough check-up, even if you have no symptoms or only mild symptoms.

3) Not signing documents from the insurance company until you have considered all your options. Insurance carriers want to settle cases quickly and inexpensively, but in general you will not immediately know the extent or costs of your injuries. Treating head injuries may require many months or even a lifetime of care, so it is important to consult with a qualified Miramar personal injury attorney to determine the value of your case. A qualified attorney can review the offer made by an insurance company and may also be able to pursue a fairer settlement on your behalf.

4) Getting copies of all your medical records. Copies of your medical records can help your Miramar personal injury attorney evaluate your case and can help you seek out a fair settlement that covers more of the costs of your injury.

5) Taking good care of yourself. After a head injury, it may be important to avoid playing sports or taking part in any activities where you may sustain a secondary head injury. Getting a concussion while you are already healing from a head injury can lead to life-threatening complications. Always consult with a qualified physician and follow their advice when recovering from a head injury.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
