A closed head injury is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). One of the most common causes of closed head injuries is in fact car accidents. Contrary to what many people believe, symptoms do not always appear right away. Therefore, many victims do not always realize they have a brain injury following an accident. Those who survive such injury often face effects lasting a few days to disabilities which may last the rest of their lives.
Victims who suffer a closed head injury as a result of a Michigan auto accident do have legal rights. In addition to filing a third party claim, victims may be entitled to file a first party claim also known as no-fault benefits. Not all states offer this benefit, however Michigan is a no-fault state. This means that your own insurance company pays most of the economic losses you suffer in an auto accident, regardless of who was at fault. Benefits can include medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care and more.
