Head Injuries Caused by Albuquerque Car Accidents

Albuquerque Car Accident Attorney Discusses Head Injuries Caused by Car Accidents

No one plans for a car accident, but when they happen they can permanently impact a person’s life, and an entire family’s life.  This is particularly true when the victim of a car accident sustains a head injury.  Head injuries can random from temporarily stunning a victim, to permanently disabling a victim, or even leading to the victim’s death.  Head injuries should always be immediately evaluated by a trained medical professional.  Sometimes delays, even short delays, can result in serious consequences.

Head injuries should also be evaluated by an experienced car accident attorney.  Here are the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our experienced Albuquerque car accident attorneys have handled many head injuries cases caused by very serious motor vehicle accidents.  If you or a loved one has sustained a head injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident, even if you think it is just a minor head injury, contact us today for a FREE case evaluation by calling (505) 883-5000.  We will thoroughly investigate your claim and advise you how to protect your rights to compensation.

Types of Brain Injuries

There are two types of head injuries which a victim of an Albuquerque car accident may sustain.

The first is called an open head injury.  This type of brain injury is when the skull has been fractured, and commonly occurs in tractor trailer truck accidents due to the massive impact these vehicles cause.  Open head injuries create obvious trauma, such as physical damage to the brain and head.

The second type is called a closed head injury.  This type of head injury does not involve a fracture, but instead involves a direct injury to the brain such as a concussion.  Closed head injuries are very dangerous because they normally cause brain swelling which can create oxygen loss to compressed areas, structure damage due to the pressure, or blood clots.

Symptoms of Common Head Injuries Caused by Car Accidents 

Besides the obvious trauma of a head injury which could be caused in a car accident, some head injuries do not cause any obvious, physical trauma.  This can actually be the most dangerous types of head injuries.  Some common symptoms of head injuries include the following:

  • Headaches, ranging from mild or inconvenient headaches to very serious and severe headaches;
  • Weaknesses on one side of the body but not another;
  • Confusion;
  • Loss of memory;
  • Loss of consciousness, even if just for a moment;
  • Numbness or pins and needles on only one side of the body;
  • Unexplained fatigue;
  • Dizziness;
  • Vertigo;
  • Nausea and stomach aches;
  • Mood changes or mood swings;
  • Unexplained emotions, such as anxiety, angry, depression;
  • Loss or impaired vision; and
  • Many other symptoms.
