Concussions and Car Accidents
Our San Antonio car accident lawyers can help you
Car accidents in San Antonio often result in very serious injuries. And right near the top of the list of the most severe injuries we deal with at Tracey Fox King & Walters are head injuries due to motor vehicle accidents.
Head injuries (also often known as Traumatic Brain Injuries or "TBIs") cover a wide range. One of the most common head injuries is a concussion. Depending on the severity of your concussion, your recovery might take weeks or months, or perhaps affect you for life.
Knowing what to do after a concussion can be confusing. First and foremost, have a doctor diagnose your head injury as soon as possible. Your life could be in danger. Then contact our law firm. We can explain all the legal options available to you.
Types of concussions
Concussions are classified into three, main categories: Grade 1 (mild concussion), Grade 2 (moderate concussion) and Grade 3 (severe concussion).
- Grade 1 concussion victims have mild symptoms that often only last a few minutes. Another important aspect of this type of concussion is injury victims do not lose consciousness after their accident.
- Grade 2 concussions are more serious. Injury victims don't lose consciousness but the symptoms often last more than a few minutes.
- Grade 3 concussions are the most serious type of concussion. This type of concussion involves the person losing consciousness. Symptoms can also often be more serious and can have permanent consequences.
Telling the difference between different types of concussions can be difficult. And if you make a mistake, your life could be at risk. Talk to a medical professional. Then talk to us. Our San Antonio attorneys can help you every step of the way.
How we can help
"Why do I need a lawyer if I sustained a concussion in a car accident caused by another driver?" This is a question we often hear from people who contact us after a motor vehicle accident in San Antonio or elsewhere in Texas.
The simple reason is that your car accident will likely be far more complicated than you first suspected. The driver who caused your crash will likely deny doing anything wrong. And even if they do admit fault, their insurance company will likely do everything it can to reduce or deny your accident claim.
Such scare tactics don't intimidate us. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies and make them pay injury victims the money they rightfully deserve. When you have our legal team on your side, you can dictate what happens. Demand justice. Schedule your free case evaluation today at our San Antonio office.
