Can I get help for my brain injury by a personal injury claim?

Most people try to be safe and cautious drivers, so many never expect to be involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, there is nothing that a safe driver can do to avoid encountering a negligent or reckless driver. For those who were involved in an accident and are now suffering from a serious injury -- such as a brain injury -- recognizing symptoms, getting treatment and covering related expenses is a top priority. In Connecticut, victims often find that pursuing personal injury claims can be helpful for addressing some of these needs.

A brain injury is the result of an impact to the brain, interfering with normal brain function. While most people might associate brain injuries with physical hits to the head, a sudden jolt can also cause a brain injury. This means that even if a person does not hit his or her head on anything in a car accident, the force of the impact can still cause a brain injury. Vehicle collisions are one of the most common causes of brain injuries.

A victim of a brain injury will usually begin experiencing symptoms soon after an accident. Some common symptoms associated with brain injuries include numbness, weakness in limbs, dizziness, excessive drowsiness, loss of consciousness and more. A victim may experience all of these symptoms or only one or two. However, experiencing any of these symptoms can be the result of a brain injury or other serious trauma, and indicates a need to seek medical care right away.

For some people, life is never the same after a brain injury. In some situations, a victim may require ongoing or even life-long medical care, which can be both expensive and physically taxing. Others lose the ability to continue working. This is why many brain injury victims in Connecticut choose to pursue personal injury suits, which can often yield necessary compensation.
