Medical Care for Traumatic Brain Injuries 

There have been countless stories in the news of Americans foregoing medical treatment because of the fear of high medical bills. One Gallup poll found that 29% of adults in America had done so between 2001 and 2021.  But if you’ve been in an accident, you need to seek medical care as soon as possible and follow the doctor’s orders to a T. If you do not, then you jeopardize the validity of your claim.  

The defense will do everything in their power to discredit your claim. If there is a significant amount of time between when the accident happened and when you sought medical care, they will try and pin the injuries on something unrelated to the event, thus placing blame on you and reducing the amount of compensation you are eligible for.  

Here’s what to expect from medical care for traumatic brain injury: 

  1. Assessment of the injury’s severity and long-term effects 
  1. Treatment recommendations, such as surgery or therapy 
  1. Monitoring of symptoms and progress 
  1. Support for managing any resulting disabilities or limitations 

Remember to keep a record of all your medical appointments, treatments, medications, and expenses related to your brain injury. This documentation helps your motorcycle accident attorney build a solid case for compensation. 

Symptoms of Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury 

A serious brain injury is not always obvious right away. Some people do not experience symptoms for days or even weeks afterward, and then when they do, they might not seek treatment right away. This is why it’s critical that you seek medical care as soon as possible. After the accident, you may experience symptoms such as: 

  • Headaches or migraines 
  • Confusion 
  • Memory loss 
  • Slurred speech 
  • Loss of consciousness 
  • Nausea or vomiting 

These symptoms can worsen over time and significantly impact your quality of life. They can make it challenging to keep your job or participate in activities you once excelled at. Head injuries can also impair your judgment or even make it difficult for you to seek help when you need it.
