Closed Head Injury Bulletin

During the over 20 years I have practiced law many clients complained of symptoms such as headaches and dizziness after an accident. Their Doctors offered no explanation. Many of those suffering had worn seatbelts.

The complaints continued and for the most part were ignored by their doctors. Some doctors just prescribed pain medication and told their patients that the symptoms would probably get better with time. Many never got better.

Outwardly the person suffering with a closed head injury appears to be normal. In some cases relatives and friends may notice an attitude or personality change. However, only the victim of this type of injury can appreciate the physical and emotional harm associated with a Closed Head Injury.

These injuries are commonly caused from trauma to the brain such as when the head strikes a windshield, steering wheel, head rest or deployed airbag. They are also caused by the violent movement of

the head forwards and backwards and from side to side without any contact.

My curiosity was aroused and I began to learn about Closed Head Injuries. I attended seminars with doctors who are aware of and treat Closed Head Injuries. I also attended legal seminars dealing with the issue.

I learned that many doctors did not realize what was going on with their patients and failed to treat this often disabling and serious injury. Even with proper medical treatment it is an ordeal for the injured. If left untreated it can quickly become a disaster.

A good personal injury attorney must be aware of this type of injury so that he can properly prepare and help manage his client’s case.

If you are experiencing unusual symptoms after an accident of any kind contact an attorney immediately. I would also encourage you to read our list of Closed Head Injury Symptoms that follows.

What rights do I have if I am in an automobile accident?

Since 1977 I have personally handled serious personal injury and automobile accident cases. During the time I have been privileged to represent the injured I was fortunate to develop an understanding regarding Closed Head Injuries as well as other Injuries.

Automobile accident cases can be caused by driver negligence, defective automobiles, defective highways and other things. You may be entitled to bring a lawsuit against the driver or owner of vehicles involved in an accident, an auto manufacturer or government entity. This may be done under certain circumstances even if you were partially at fault.

Under Michigan law you may also have important and valuable rights to benefits from an automobile insurance company. Many of these benefits are guaranteed and must be provided in most cases no matter who is at fault when an automobile accident occurs

Wage Loss
Medical Expenses
Replacement Services (Household chores etc.)

Medical Transportation Expenses
Survivor’s Benefits
Other Expenses

I would suggest that if you or a loved one have been involved in a car accident or other type of accident and do not have an attorney that you immediately consult with one. In addition to handling "Closed Head Injury" cases I also handle personal injury cases involving other types of injuries.

It is important that your case is properly prepared and handled. Evidence must be preserved and your rights secured. This is best done by an experienced attorney. Act today to preserve your rights..
