Concussions from Car Accidents

Concussions from Car AccidentsVictims of serious car accidents sometimes suffer bad head injuries, including concussions. A concussion – which is a type of traumatic head injury – can happen because of a strong impact on the accident victim’s head. When this occurs, the accident victim’s brain could strike the side of the skull, resulting in bruising.


While some concussions are relatively minor, others can lead to lengthy and sometimes permanent consequences. Short-term impacts of a concussion include headaches and temporary memory losses. However, more serious concussions can lead to long-term impacts which could leave an accident victim permanently unable to care for himself or herself.

How Accidents Victims May Suffer a Concussion in a Car Accident


There are several ways that a motor vehicle driver or passenger could suffer a concussion in a car accident. In many car collisions, the force of the impact causes the accident victim’s head to strike something inside the vehicle. For example, the accident victim’s head could strike the steering wheel, the headrest, or the driver or passenger’s side window, resulting in a concussion injury. In-car accident cases where the accident victim is ejected from the vehicle, the accident victim’s head could strike the ground or something else, resulting in a concussion.


After suffering a concussion injury in a car accident, the most important step is to seek immediate medical treatment at a hospital or urgent care center. After you have received the treatment you need, it is important that you speak with a Matthews car accident lawyer about your case.

Pursuing Monetary Compensation for Your Concussion Injury

If you suffered a concussion in a motor vehicle collision that was not your fault, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for everything that you had to go through. For example, you could pursue compensation for the following damages:


  1. The costs of your medical treatment for the concussion
  2. Compensation for lost earnings from not being able to work after your car accident
  3. Pain and suffering compensation
  4. Compensation for loss of earning capacity in the event of a permanent head injury that leaves you incapacitated
  5. Compensation for chronic headaches and other permanent problems resulting from the collision
