New York Head Injury
Each year millions of Americans will suffer from a head injury due to an auto accident. At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC our New York Truck Accident Lawyer team has discovered that individuals that are involved in a truck accident often face a more serious form of head injury, as compared to those individuals who are involved in a typical car accident.
A head injury involves any type of injury to the head or skull, whether with a traumatic brain injury or without a traumatic brain injury. Accidents can cause an injury through sudden acceleration or sudden deceleration or from blunt trauma to the head. A motor vehicle accident is a common cause of a head injury. Other causes of severe head injury can include a slip and fall accident, violent physical assault, and a workplace accident, such as in a construction accident or possibly from a fall as seen in a scaffold accident.
In any of these accidents, a head injury can be severe. With a severe head injury, an individual can face symptoms like confusion, seizures, vomiting, abnormal headache, marked drowsiness, personality changes and nausea. These symptoms would not appear for a minor head laceration but would be noticeable for a moderate concussion, penetrating skull injury or a severe depressed skull fracture. Our experienced New York Injury Lawyer staff has learned that a moderate head injury can cause symptoms that eventually result in brain damage or possibly result in a wrongful death.
A severe head injury caused by a truck accident can cause the injury victim thousands in lost wages and lost pay and thousands more in medical expenses and bills. If you are involved in a truck accident caused by someone’s negligence contact our New York Truck Accident Head Injury Lawyer staff to discuss filing a potential claim against the negligent party.
