Being involved in an accident is not just traumatic to begin with, but if you are injured then it becomes an even bigger issue. If you are unlucky enough to have a brain injury from an accident then you could have a much more concerning diagnosis, mostly because it is not immediately obvious that you have had a brain injury. Because of how difficult it can be to tell whether or not you have had such a serious injury, it is a good idea to have a doctor check it out if you have hit your head during the accident or if you feel dizzy as you may not remember hitting your head.
The trouble with a brain injury is that the full extent of the damage and how it effects a person is not immediately obvious. In fact, you may not know how greatly the injury changed things until you are confronted with it head on. When you contact a Brain Injury Attorney in San Francisco it is important to be able to provide any and all documentation from a doctor’s office or hospital as well as any confirmed changes that have happened since you got a brain injury. By having confirmed information and documented changes it will be easier for your lawyer to take the appropriate action. Even if your symptoms do not show themselves immediately, you can still file a lawsuit against someone who has caused you to have a brain injury after it has been documented.
It is best to face the fact that very few people are going to go to the hospital to have x-rays done just because they have a bit of a headache after getting in a car accident, especially if they consider that car accident to be of the minor variety. Or maybe the accident was serious and you just did not get around to going to the hospital among all of the confusion. In either of these cases, they are both a perfect representation of how and why people do not realize how seriously they were injured until a while after they are, especially in the case of a brain injury.
