Symptoms of a Closed-Head Injury
Many motorcycle accident victims suffer from what are called “closed head injuries.” The symptoms of a closed-head injury may include:
- Loss of short-term memory
- Ringing in the ears
- Increasingly aggressive personality
Sometimes closed-head injuries do not immediately have obvious physical symptoms. Injuries to the head may not be immediately visible at the time of the accident, and there may be no bruising, swelling, bleeding or tearing of the brain or related membranes. This is why it is so important to get continuing medical treatment after a medical treatment.
Obtaining Proper Treatment of Brain Injuries
Following a motorcycle accident, an emergency room physician will perform a minimal examination to identify, diagnose, and treat life-threatening head injuries. However, since injuries to the head and brain are often invisible injuries, they may be undetectable by objective examination.
Even if an MRI scan is negative, the victim may have symptoms of a closed-head injury and need further neurological testing. If you experience any symptoms, seek medical help immediately and contact a lawyer for advice.
Attorney Tom Reinecke will be your advocate not only in dealing with the insurance company but also in advising you about your treatment options.
