Concussions and Car Accidents

Our Dallas car accident attorneys explain how system works

Car accidents in Dallas often result in severe injuries. And right near the top of the list of severe auto accident injuries is concussions, a type of head injury or TBI (traumatic brain injury) that can affect injury victims for weeks or months, or even permanently.

Awareness of the severity of concussions has increased in recent years. But many people still might not realize just how serious concussions can be for injury victims. What's worse, what might seem like a mild concussion could turn out to be a serious, life-threating TBI.

Don't underestimate the seriousness of your concussion caused by a Dallas car accident. Seek immediate medical attention. Then contact Tracey Fox & Walters. Our dedicated Dallas auto accident lawyers can handle all the legal issues associated with your crash.

Common causes

Concussions are generally classified into three main categories - mild (Grade 1), moderate (Grade 2) and severe (Grade 3). Why concussions occur in Dallas car accidents can be more complicated. Some of the common causes include:

Other circumstances often apply. What matters most is that you or a loved one seek immediate medical treatment at a Dallas hospital such as UT Southwestern Emergency Room or Baylor University Medical Center.

Warning signs

Warning signs that you or a loved one could have a concussion after your Dallas car accident can be severe or subtle. If something seems wrong, see a doctor right away. Warning signs that you or a loved one could have a concussion include:

  • Ringing noise in ear
  • No memory of accident
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Confusion

Take your warning signs seriously right from the start. Don't try to diagnose yourself. Seek medical attention. Then schedule a free case evaluation at our Dallas office.
