3 Legal Options for Recurring Headaches Due to a Concussion After a Car Accident

Schedule a Free Consultation

Injuries from a car accident can have a long-term impact on your life, especially concussions, which are in fact brain injuries. 

Even if you seek treatment for the concussion right away, you may still get recurring headaches that make it challenging to focus on your work and other important activities. This may be called “post-concussive syndrome.” Headaches, and other symptoms such as dizziness, forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating, behavior/mood changes, sensitivity to light/sound, migraines, and other symptoms may be indicators of a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Because these headaches and other symptoms result from an injury caused by another party, you may have legal options to pursue justice, including contacting a lawyer, filing a claim, and recovering compensation for your damages.

If you start to have recurring headaches after having a concussion from a car accident that resulted from another party’s negligence, it is crucial to seek appropriate medical attention from a neurologist, concussion, or brain injury specialist right away. 

Further, you should reach out to an experienced brain injury lawyer right away. Doing this creates a medical and legal record of your condition and gives you the best chance of achieving the compensation you deserve.

Recurring headaches after a concussion can be frustrating, but you may not know where to start in pursuing treatment and compensation. With the following legal options, you may hold the at-fault party liable for their negligence and secure a fair settlement:

Contacting an Experienced Lawyer

Acting quickly after suffering recurring headaches from a car accident-related concussion is critical due to the complex medical knowledge an attorney is required to have to understand how to prove a brain injury, and the significance of a TBI. At Jassim Law, we handle every aspect of your claim with the utmost care and attention, including the following:

  • Thoroughly investigating every detail of your case IMMEDIATELY
  • Discussing and understanding your TBI injury with your medical providers
  • Collecting and preserving vital evidence and witness statements
  • Hiring the best experts your case requires
  • Analyzing the accuracy of the police report
  • Interviewing critical eyewitnesses
  • Obtaining 911 audio/dispatch and video records
  • Filing all paperwork correctly and on time
  • Advocating for your rights and interests inside and outside of court
  • Helping you get your vehicle repaired or replaced without delay
  • Determining if the negligent party was on the job at the time of the accident
  • Determining whether additional parties or entities are at fault
  • Answering your legal questions
  • Keeping you updated on the status of your case
  • Negotiating with all parties on your behalf

We understand the complexities of navigating the legal process, so we provide comprehensive services that allow you to focus on recovery while having the best chance of achieving a fair settlement.

Filing a Claim

When investigating your case, we consider every detail to determine if you can file a claim and who is at fault for your TBI or recurring headaches. This may include the party who caused the car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, or other type of injury that caused your concussion injury. 

Once we determine a liable party and build a strong case that proves their negligence directly caused your recurring headaches, we can file your claim, fight for your rights, and go to court if necessary.

Recovering Damages

Recurring headaches or other symptoms from a concussion brain injury can have a physical, emotional, and psychological impact on your life and may even result in missing work, and impacts nearly all aspects of your life and well being. 

At Jassim Law, we believe these damages deserve recognition, so we work hard to accurately calculate your losses to advocate for just compensation. Depending on the severity of your headaches and your unique circumstances, you may recover the following costs:

  • Non-Economic harms (Pain and suffering)
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Physical Impairment
    • Mental suffering
    • Disfigurement
    • Emotional distress
    • Pain
    • Anxiety/Grief
    • Inconvenience
  • Medical expenses (past and for the future)
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation expenses
  • Cost of prescription medication
  • Lost wages or income (past and for the future)
  • Loss of companionship
  • Damages for the injury to a spouse or registered domestic partner (Loss of Consortium)
  • Wrongful death damages
  • Punitive damages

We understand the tactics insurance adjusters use to undermine your claim, such as blaming you for the accident, claiming a pre-existing condition caused your headaches, claiming that you did not suffer a concussion or TBI, and denying your claim, so you can rely on us to advocate for a fair settlement on your behalf. Our tenacious lawyers are also prepared to go to trial if necessary.
