Head Injuries

A head injury from a car accident often results in serious problems that last a lifetime. Like other types of car accident injuries, head injuries may not be apparent at the time of the accident. You may feel OK, only to find your condition has deteriorated hours or days later. Other times, a head or traumatic brain injury is apparent at the scene of the accident. No matter how or why a car accident happened, head injuries often have dire consequences to accident victims and their families for years after the accident. Get immediate medical attention if you suspect you injured your head in an accident.

McDaniel Law Firm, PLC understands that head injuries can be absolutely devastating. People with head injuries, or traumatic brain injury, may become permanently disabled. They may face long-term medical bills. They may not be able to ever work again. The physical, emotional and financial toll can be overwhelming.

How do car accident head injuries happen?

Auto accidents are the leading cause of head and brain injuries. High-speed accidents involving a driver or passenger's head striking an object such as a steering wheel or windshield can cause head trauma. Traumatic brain injuries are frighteningly common in rollover crashes. But it's important for accident victims to remember even a seemingly minor accident can cause unseen head trauma. A low-speed rear-end crash can yield similar results.

Common signs of head injuries can include:

  • Headaches
  • Sight problems
  • Mood or personality changes
  • Loss of memory
  • Confusion

Whiplash

Jonesboro whiplash injury attorneys ready to fight for you

Whiplash is a common injury in a rear-end accident. Despite safety features in modern cars, such as seat belts and airbags, a driver or a passenger can still sustain a whiplash injury due to the significant forces of an accident. In a whiplash injury, the victim's head generally moves violently back and forth. At McDaniel Law Firm, PLC, our whiplash attorneys in Jonesboro understand accident victims may face a lifetime of pain and permanent restriction in their activities due to their accident.

What are the symptoms of whiplash?

Symptoms of whiplash primarily include neck pain and swelling. Tenderness along the back of the neck and muscle spasms in the side or back of the neck are common. Injury victims who experience difficulty moving the head, headache, and pain shooting from the neck into either the shoulder or arm should seek prompt medical attention. Whiplash may also involve the following symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Pain in the shoulders, arms and hands
  • Reduced ability to turn and bend
  • Lower back problems

A driver or passenger may sustain whiplash in an accident. The technical term is cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) trauma or syndrome. Whiplash involves an injury of the vertebrae of the neck and the muscles and ligaments that support them. But despite the frequency in which accidents report pain after an accident, whiplash injuries remain difficult to diagnose by medical professionals.
