A traumatic brain injury is one of the most severe types of injuries people sustain in auto accidents. These are common when accident victims are ejected or hit their head during the crash. Even a seemingly small concussion can cause an injury which leads to a reduced capacity to control your emotions, remember, concentrate, comprehend and function. All too often, these injuries are chalked up to ‘getting older’ when they were actually caused by a concussion sustain in a crash and were never properly diagnosed.
Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
- Neck pain or headaches that persist for long periods of time
- Reduction in the speed of your thinking, remembering or decision making.
- Difficulty controlling your emotions

Head injuries and other severe injuries can lead to countless other future problems such as high healthcare costs. These injuries often result in having to switch careers due to the inability to function at the same level as before the crash. Fighting to be fairly compensated for these injuries is often difficult because a head injury can’t be seen like a broken bone. The insurance company will fight any diagnosis of a head injury and claim it either doesn’t exist or wasn’t a result of the crash. Not only should you be compensated for all you’ve been through, but all the medical bills, wage loss and pain and suffering you’ll encounter in the future.
You may be wondering how future wage loss and medical treatment are calculated. There are doctors that specialize in serious injuries and they’re trained to calculate future medical needs and bills based on current injuries. Economic experts are also retained to predict the total amount of future earnings potential you’ve lost due to the inability to function at the same level as before the crash. These are all important aspects to every serious injury case and should not be overlooked. If you sustained a serious injury in a Nebraska auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
