A Potentially Life-Changing Injury

A head injury is one of the most potentially damaging types of injuries a person can sustain. Brain injuries can alter a life permanently or lead to a need for long-lasting, intensive medical treatment. When someone else's negligence is to blame for a head injury in a car accident or another incident, the injured person and their family should not have to shoulder the cost of treatment and recovery. At Edwards & Kautz, our savvy legal team is dedicated to pursuing maximum compensation for individuals and their families who have suffered the effects of a traumatic brain injury caused by another's negligence. Call us at 270-908-4914 to learn how we can help.

Brain injuries are generally categorized as open or closed, depending on whether the skull fractured from the impact. Closed injuries can be more damaging, as swelling from the injury presses against the inside of the skull. With nowhere to go, the pressure can cause bruising and other damage to the brain.

The Importance Of Seeing A Doctor

It's possible to walk away from a car accident thinking nothing is wrong, only to experience symptoms later that indicate a concussion or a more serious brain injury. Don't assume you're fine after you hit your head in an accident. Both for the sake of your health and for the sake of documentation for a potential personal injury claim, it's essential to get checked out by a doctor after a blow to the head.
