How an Automobile Accident Lawyer helps Your Injury

In Descartes’ treatise “First Meditation”, he posits the now famous maxim cogito ergo sum, or, as we English speakers know it: I think, therefore I am. This ubiquitous phrase led to one of the core concepts of Western philosophy for centuries to come, that of the division between mind and body. However, what Descartes would call “natural science”, and what we just call science, has progressed a fair bit since the 17th century. Though perhaps mind and body can be conceived of as binary, the brain certainly has a very direct relation to the body.


Physical Symptoms of a Brain Injury


One of the most important tasks for an automobile accident lawyer is to provide their injured clients with a medical expert who can give an accurate, detailed account of their injuries. As such, any automobile accident lawyer will surely recognize many of these physical responses to a traumatic brain injury. If you’ve been in a serious car accident, or even if you feel shaken up after what seemed to be a minor fender bender, be vigilant for these symptoms:

  • Loss of consciousness, even briefly;
  • Headaches;
  • Severe, repetitive nausea or vomiting;
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus);
  • A seizure or other involuntary movements;
  • Swelling of the scalp;
  • Dizziness or poor balance;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Slurred speech;
  • Numbness or “pins and needles”; and
  • Problems with sleep patterns.

If you experience any of these, contact a doctor immediately. These symptoms are only the beginning—medical professionals know just what to look for if you suspect a brain injury.
