Long-term pain and suffering possible after a serious car wreck

Pennsylvania residents know that a car accident can cause both short and long-term problems for a victim. Certain serious injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, can leave a victim with pain and suffering, both mentally and physically, that can have an impact for years after a car accident. These medical conditions typically carry serious financial implications for the victim and family.

Tracy Morgan, the famous comedian, sustained a TBI in a motor vehicle accident nearly one year ago. He still complains of headaches, nose bleeds and memory loss, all of which are common side effects of a TBI. Brain injury experts say that recovery from a brain injury can take years, and it is not known if Mr. Morgan will ever be able to perform as he once did. 

Even a mild brain injury, such as a concussion, can cause pain and lingering headaches. It can compromise a person’s ability to work, drive and do other activities that he or she once enjoyed. Pennsylvania residents will note that a brain injury does not have to be severe in order to have a major impact on life. 

When an individual is injured because of the actions of another driver, there is no reason that he or she should have to endure the pain and suffering alone. Those who have endured a brain injury of any kind deserve a complete physical recovery. After a serious accident, it is wise to ensure that the right to seek financial compensation is protected by seeking the assistance of a lawyer who is knowledgeable in personal injury cases.
