Car Accident Head Injuries
Head injuries caused by car accidents are often concussion which can also become traumatic brain injuries. These are caused by the severe impact to the head or shaking which causes the brain to hit the walls of the skull. Such injuries will affect day to day activities like memory, balance, personality, and other physical symptoms. With these symptoms, it can be difficult to also handle the insurance claim and insurance adjuster in negotiations for a settlement.
An insurance adjuster will look to the following to determine whether to pay out, and how much. The factors include who was at fault for the accident, or rather, your degree of fault. Whether the victim did anything to prevent injury, or prevent further injury. The victim’s life circumstances will be taken into account, such as age, career, medical history and other vitals. The insurance adjuster may also take int account whether the offending party was a “bad actor”, such as whether the driver was impaired.
