Car Accident Lawyer Handling Brain Injury and Concussions
Athens attorney who fights back against insurance companies
Many people suffer head injuries in car accidents. These injuries are very frightening because they can have life-changing consequences, such as concussions and other brain injuries. If a negligent driver in Henderson County caused a car accident that left you with a head injury, you deserve financial compensation.
Recovering compensation can be a complicated process. Negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible, and they have lawyers fighting for their best interests. You need a lawyer who is concerned about your needs. Weinstein Law is ready to fight for you.
In a car accident, a person’s head can whip forward and then backward with great force, causing damage to the brain. A person’s head can also suffer blunt trauma through contact with the windshield, headrest, window or steering wheel. The result can be a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Symptoms of concussion or TBI can take days or even weeks to appear. Symptoms can include headaches, confusion, nausea or slurred speech. There can be serious long-term effects, such as loss of memory, problems with motor function or problems with vision or hearing. Some people experience personality changes or suffer from depression.
Because the brain is so complex, concussions and TBI can be difficult to diagnose and treat. You may need to see specialists and undergo physical, occupational, cognitive or speech therapy. Medication may be needed and, in some cases, surgery. Medical expenses can add up quickly and become overwhelming.
You shouldn’t have to pay if a negligent driver caused the accident that left you injured. But a negligent driver may deny causing the accident – even though they were speeding, texting, operating recklessly or falling asleep at the wheel.
Insurance companies may question the seriousness of your concussion or TBI or the need for certain types of treatment. They may blame you for causing the accident. Another tactic they may use is to offer you a settlement. They’ll say it’s the best they can do, but it won’t come close to covering all the damages you have suffered.
