Concussions and Houston Car Accidents
How much compensation do you get for head injuries and whiplash?
Car accidents in Houston often result in serious head injuries, including concussions and other Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs). Graded on a scale of 1 to 3, concussions can range from mild (Grade 1 concussion) to moderate (Grade 2 concussion) or severe (Grade 3 concussion).
Depending on the severity of your concussion, you might not be able to work for several weeks or months while you recover. You or a loved one could even sustain permanent brain damage due to a severe concussion.
