Brain Injuries in Rear-End Collisions

Many drivers may walk away from a rear-end collision and feel lucky that the accident was not more serious. They may believe that they only experienced a minor accident. This is especially true if the damage to their car was not extensive. While this may in fact be true, it may also be the case that the accident was more severe than originally thought.

Damage to the Car Is Not Equivalent to Damage to the Driver

Drivers who are in seemingly minor accidents are still at risk for more severe medical conditions, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBIs are not only serious brain injuries that cause immediate impairment, they may also develop over time.

Brain injuries occur due to the brain shaking inside the skull during a traumatic event, which can also result in a concussion. Often, people may believe that a concussion is a minor injury that lasts only a short period of time. While this could be the case, a concussion can also cause long lasting effects and it may not be detected immediately.

After a rear-end collision, drivers should always be evaluated for injuries that are not immediately noticeable. It is important for others to be included in medical care conversations in case a concussion does become apparent within 24 hours after the car accident.

When to Suspect a Concussion

Symptoms of a concussion includes a headache, nausea, blurred vision, and sensitively to light or sounds. A concussion can also present itself as difficulty in balance or confusion. A person suffering from a concussion is often not able to detect these changes, this is why it is important to be monitored either by a medical professional or a loved one during this sensitive time.

Link Between Rear-End Accidents and Head and Neck Injuries

Forcibly hitting objects, like hitting your head against the headrest, can also cause brain injuries and head and neck injuries. Forceful shaking can also cause whiplash or a muscle strain in the neck and can damage the cervical spine. It is always important to get evaluated by a medical professional soon after a car accident to help determine the possibility of a hidden injury.

Why Clients Choose Deborah

Heather A
I have known Deb for years now and it all started in 2009 when I got hurt and needed legal help with my workers comp. I randomly chose Deb because of the things I read on her website and I liked that she had a take charge attitude about just about everything. She out-lawyered someone and got me more in a settlement for that and then also worked with me on another case and won that one as well for me. If you get to know Deb and her personal story, you will get to know an amazing single mom who has had her own struggles and has come out so much stronger. She will fight for you if you do your part as a client and follow her guidance. I have now used two women lawyers in Media and three men and I actually found the two women far more effective and both won my cases that the men lost. Without Deb and my other lawyer winning the cases for me that they did - I could have found myself disabled for good with no money to pay for the life I live because I can’t work now. I credit my ability to be able to eat and have transportation and all. I couldn’t be more grateful for their hard work they did for me. Deb has won two of my cases and I would absolutely refer others to her for the same kinds of cases and I would use her again if I ever needed her help again!
Daveen Carpenter
Deborah's team went above and beyond to get my case settled quickly. I am forever grateful
Rebecca Porter
If you ever need a worker’s compensation attorney, I highly suggest using Deborah Truscello. I had a work accident injury and was referred to Deborah. She was with me every step of the way, with this long-drawn-out process. She was there any time I had questions or needed advice on my rehabilitation. Now my case is settled. I am very happy how things turned out and I owe it all to her. I can't thank her enough. I will use her again if I ever need too.
Jackson Jones
Deborah is an excellent lawyer. She was professional, knowledgeable, and made me and my case feel important. She was always accessible and answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend Debbie to anyone injured at work and in need of legal services.
I am a client of Deborah Truscello and also a woman of color. Deborah Truscello is not a bigot nor is she a racist. I hired Ms. Truscello back in 2016 for a very nasty custody case against a crazy man who has a history of dragging all his children through the court system. Ms. Truscello has been nothing but professional and well organized. She is very reliable and always available. I could contact her any time of the day or night and she is always responsive to my text messages, calls, and emails. If you are considering hiring her as your attorney I highly recommend you schedule a consultation and see for yourself you will not be disappointed.
