Closed head injury victims often encounter challenges when they attempt to collect compensation from negligent parties or even make claims on their own insurance policies.
Although a brain injury is invisible to others after initial bumps or bruises subside, lingering complications often remain.
Common head injury symptoms may include:
- Enduring headaches
- Mood swings, personality changes and/or depression
- Difficulty concentrating
- Easily triggered feelings of sensory overload
The challenging aspect with regard to a personal injury claim is the fact that there are limited objective diagnostic tests for measuring head injury complications. MRIs and CT scans typically do reveal any diagnostic findings. In addition, clients of McGowan & Cecil, LLC often undergo neuropsychology evaluations to discern outcomes and assist the healthcare provider in the treatment of a traumatic brain injury.
