Head Injuries

Raleigh Head Injury Lawyer

When someone suffers a head injury, there is the possibility that the effects of the injury will be much longer lasting than is initially obvious. What seems like a simple concussion, from which one quickly recovers, can later turn into personal injury with months or years of recurring headaches, dizziness, and memory and/or cognitive problems.

This type of long-term head injury often does not appear in the original diagnosis because its causes are often detected by sophisticated and expensive testing. Insurance adjusters know that head injuries can last a long time and can cause problems after recovery seems to be complete.

A head injury not only increases how much the claim is worth but often it also speeds up the negotiation process because an adjuster wants to settle the claim before further head injury-related medical bills are incurred.

Reporting Head Injuries to Your Doctor

Watch for these signs and report them to your doctor: concussion, a period of unconsciousness, however brief, dizziness, disorientation, nausea, difficulty with remembering or difficulty thinking clearly. If you have any long-term effects, report them to your doctor and emphasize that you are still suffering from the effects of your head injury.

Then, speak to an attorney knowledgeable about head injuries. An experienced and competent attorney will gather the pertinent information about the case and will ensure that there are no missed opportunities when it comes to receiving fair compensation for your head injury and your financial losses.

What Our Clients

Have Said...

Oliver and Sherrie M. – Car Accident

“We were hit head-on by someone who run a red light. I got bruised up real bad inside and I had just had shoulder surgery and it inflamed that. My wife was hurt the worst. It disfigured her right arm. We were referred to Mr. West through our son-in-law so we went up and set an appointment with him. We went in and met him for the first time and he is a very nice gentleman to say the least. He took over the case and found out who the [driver] was. It had totaled the car and I had just gotten it paid off. They didn’t even get hurt. Mr. West took the case and went way out of his way to help. The lady who hit us … they had only the cheapest insurance to get the car on the road … so he helped us get more money to help us pay the bills. We are very happy with how it turned out. Kelly and West, they’re good people. You can talk to them and they’re down home people.”
