A car accident can cause serious injuries. One that you especially need to watch out for is a concussion. This is an alarming type of head and brain injury that needs to be treated as soon as possible. A Corpus Christi, Texas auto accident lawyer can help you pursue compensation and hold negligent drivers accountable after you get treatment.
What Are Common Indicators of a Concussion?
People can lose consciousness when they get a concussion, but not everyone does. That is why it is important to know some of the other common indicators of a concussion. We’re talking about:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurry vision
- An inability to remember the crash and other recent events
- Clumsy movements
- Mood swings
- Problems with light and noise
- Slurred speech
Do Kids Act Differently After a Concussion?
You have to be especially careful if there were any children in your car during the accident. Kids can also get concussions, and they are less likely to be able to tell you exactly what is wrong and how they are feeling. You should watch out for symptoms like:
- Coordination issues
- Changes in eating or sleeping patterns
- Nausea and vomiting
- Sudden lack of interest in usual activities and toys
Who Will Pay For My Medical Bills After a Car Accident?
Your own car insurance can pay for some of your medical bills, but if you and your passengers have serious injuries you should talk to a personal injury lawyer and consider suing another driver. If the other driver caused the accident, they should be held accountable.
You can sue to recover compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. You can also sue for damages relating to pain and suffering, mental anguish, and trauma.
