Common causes of severe head injuries

A severe head injury can arise from seemingly benign circumstances, including:

  • Vehicle collisions
  • Construction accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Sports injuries
  • Faulty products
  • Assault or other intentional acts

How can I tell if I have a head injury?

It’s important to seek medical attention immediately after any accident.

Symptoms of head injuries include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, confusion or difficulty concentrating
  • Slurred speech or loss of balance
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Memory problems
  • Unequal size pupils

Even if you initially feel fine, it’s important to see a medical professional.

The adrenaline you experience after an accident can mask the symptoms of a head injury. Seeing a doctor will also give you a record of your head injury, which can be important evidence if you decide to pursue legal action.

Common types of head injuries

Head injuries can range from mild to severe. Some common head injuries include:

  • Concussion
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Skull fractures
  • Contusions and lacerations
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Anoxic brain injury
  • Hypoxic brain injury

How much is the typical settlement in a head injury lawsuit?

The amount of a head injury settlement varies depending on the facts and circumstances of each case. Generally, head injury settlements typically cover economic damages and non-economic damages.

  • Economic damages may include medical bills and lost wages.
  • Non-economic damages can include pain and suffering, disability or disfigurement.

In Missouri, there is no cap to the amount of damages you can be awarded, but all head injury lawsuits must be initiated within five years of the date of the accident or injury.
