During the over 20 years I have practiced law many clients complained of symptoms such as headaches and dizziness after an accident. Their Doctors offered no explanation. Many of those suffering had worn seatbelts.
The complaints continued and for the most part were ignored by their doctors. Some doctors just prescribed pain medication and told their patients that the symptoms would probably get better with time. Many never got better.
Outwardly the person suffering with a closed head injury appears to be normal. In some cases relatives and friends may notice an attitude or personality change. However, only the victim of this type of injury can appreciate the physical and emotional harm associated with a Closed Head Injury.
These injuries are commonly caused from trauma to the brain such as when the head strikes a windshield, steering wheel, head rest or deployed airbag. They are also caused by the violent movement of the head forwards and backwards and from side to side without any contact.
My curiosity was aroused and I began to learn about Closed Head Injuries. I attended seminars with doctors who are aware of and treat Closed Head Injuries. I also attended legal seminars dealing with the issue.
I learned that many doctors did not realize what was going on with their patients and failed to treat this often disabling and serious injury. Even with proper medical treatment it is an ordeal for the injured. If left untreated it can quickly become a disaster.
A good personal injury attorney must be aware of this type of injury so that he can properly prepare and help manage his client’s case.
