Blunt Force Head Trauma from a Car Accident
There are a number of risks associated with a car accident. One of the most serious risks is suffering blunt force trauma to the head, which may result in severe brain injury. Over 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury every year in the United States and many of them happen are a result of motor vehicle accidents. Due to the significant medical bills and other consequences of a brain injury, insurance settlements are unlikely to fully address crash-related costs and legal action may be needed.

Common Effects of Brain Injuries
Even at fairly low speeds, in the event of a motor vehicle collision, one’s head may be violently cast against the steering wheel, dashboard, window, or body of the automobile. The force of this impact can cause your brain to be jarred inside the skull, inflicting severe damage. The following are some representative examples of the possible effects of such an incident:
- Loss of memory
- Vision or speech impairment
- Difficulties with spoken or written communication
- Loss of balance and coordination
- Impaired motor skills
