  • Motor Vehicle Accidents and Brain Injury – An Overview

    October 12, 2015

    Motor vehicle accidents invariably result in some kind of injury to those traveling in the vehicles and it is extremely rare for people to emerge completely unscathed following such an event. Soft tissue injury, broken bones, laceration, cuts, internal bleeding, brain and skull injuries, organ damage, dental and facial injuries, spine and neck injury, burns, sprains, strains, concussion, contusions etc are some of the physical injuries. Apart from these, there are psychological and emotional problems that could result from an accident, especially a serious one in which fatalities have occurred.

    Brain Injury and MVA

    Millions of people all over the world are killed in motor vehicle accidents and many millions more suffer minor, major and long-term injuries. Injuries from MVAs are one of the primary causes of long term disabilities and place a huge financial burden on the individual, family and the state. Head injuries are common following head-on collisions, side-swipe, single-vehicle crashes, ATV related accidents, motorcycle and bicycle accidents. In some accidents, pedestrians and bystanders may be hit by the vehicles, resulting in serious injuries. In all these cases, the head region absorbs direct impact and all the forces involved in the accident.

    Focal and diffuse injuries are the two most commonly seen types of brain injury following an MVA. Internal hemorrhaging, lacerations and contusions to the brain, skull injury, fracture and swelling are some of results of severe brain trauma.

    Brain injury is also the most common cause of death following an MVA. The longest average stay in hospitals arises from brain injury cases. Morbidity in survivors may be of a long-lasting or short term nature. Disabilities include motor, visual, memory loss, hearing, psychiatric, hearing, sensory and cognitive problems.

    Legal Aspects of Brain Injury following an MVA

    In legal terms, the “case value” of a serious MVA that results in brain injury is extremely high, running into millions of dollars. However, the expenses involved in such cases are also equally high. Medical bills can run into the million range. While assessing a traumatic brain injury case, our no win no fee lawyers can assist you with putting together a strong claim. There is an enormous amount of paperwork that needs to be done. Typically, the expenditure following brain injury would include:

    • Court expenses
    • Independent medical experts’ fee
    • Damage assessment experts’ fee
    • Costs of garnering evidence
    • Costs of interviewing witnesses

    These costs could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars, even by conservative estimates, apart from the time and effort involved. Hence, our long term disability lawyers have the knowledge, experience and expertise to make an initial assessment of the case and give you an honest opinion of the merits.

    The Complex Nature of Brain Injury Litigation

    Since brain injury cases are extremely serious and complicated, they require to be dealt with by experts. Our serious injury lawyers have experience and skill to understand the complexities of this type of injury, deal with medical experts presented by insurance companies.

    One of the issues commonly faced by patients is that following a brain injury, there may be symptoms which manifest later on in life. There may have been signs and symptoms which were so subtle that they were initially overlooked, ignored or misdiagnosed. Inexperienced personal injury lawyers may not recognize the significance of these symptoms and may even settle for a smaller amount. Hence you require the services of specialist brain injury lawyers who can interview you and the family to detect any subtle changes in behavior following an MVA. Emotional changes, mood swings, depression, phobias, chronic headaches, slurred speech etc could be some of the manifestations of brain injury later in life.
