Recovering after a car accident

In a car accident, it is possible for a driver or passenger to experience a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. A TBI can be mild or severe, and there may be a variety of symptoms that a person can face after experiencing one. Those who are in a car crash in Illinois or anywhere else should seek medical treatment even if they don't feel dizzy or lose consciousness.

In some cases, an individual may need to relearn basic life skills after experiencing a TBI. Residential facilities may spend up to five hours a day with patients teaching them how to get out of bed or walk on their own. Other skills such as talking or eating may need to be learned again as well. For those who have a relatively minor TBI, it may be possible to drive again in the future.

Medical professionals may be able to work with injured individuals to help them overcome both physical and mental hurdles to operating a motor vehicle in the future. This may include checking for vision or balance issues that could make doing so dangerous to the driver and others on the road. Individuals are encouraged to create a support system to help overcome emotional problems such as fits of anger or depression after a crash.

If an accident victim experiences emotional problems or other issues after an accident, he or she may be entitled to compensation. This may help to pay medical expenses or other costs related to the crash, such as lost wages or lost future earnings. An attorney may review video or other evidence to determine if negligence caused the crash to occur. In some cases, multiple parties might be liable for paying damages that an accident victim incurs in its aftermath.
