Headache After a Car or Truck Accident

By Pottroff & Karlin LLC |

Frequent headaches can be common symptoms of a concussion, also known as a traumatic brain injury, blood clot or whiplash after a car or truck accident. Some people experiencing this may ignore and label it a normal headache. The truth is, it could be a sign of a severe medical injury, which may even become an emergency.

Are Headaches After an Auto Accident a Sign of Brain Injury?

Headaches after a car or truck accident should not be ignored since they could be symptoms of brain injury. This type of injury is invisible to the naked eye, which makes it difficult to be easily noticed, like in the case of a broken bone. While most first responders are very well trained, first responders are primarily concerned with ensuring you or your loved one is not in danger of dying. Thus, it is also easier for first responders to fail to make a proper diagnosis for traumatic brain injury. 

Signs of brain injury may include feeling pressure across your forehead, loss of memory, loss of appetite, inability to sleep, mood changes, anxiety, dizziness, blurry vision, nausea and vomiting, confusion, ringing in the ears, slurred or incoherent speech.  All these should never be ignored as soon as they are experienced first-hand.

Train crash cases are unique and complex with many different potential pitfalls, such as federal preemption. Anytime I get hired or even get a call from a train crash victim, my very first call is to Nathan’s firm. Nathan’s knowledge and experience in handling and trying cases against these litigation savvy railroad companies gives me the confidence to know that the clients and cases I refer to him are getting the best of the best.

James Perrin Lubbock, Texas

I have had the opportunity to work as co-counsel with Nathan on several railroad crossing accidents cases. In each case, Nathan always possessed an incredible knowledge of the law and the facts, possessed a great talent for aggressive - strategic legal planning and trial tactics while, at the same time, displaying great skill as an effective negotiator. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Scott McCluen Harriman, Tennessee

Nathan Karlin has my strongest endorsement in the field of railroad crossing cases and personal injury law. I had the pleasure of working with Nathan in a complex railroad personal injury case. I was impressed by Nathan’s knowledge, his work ethic, and his dedication to the client. I look forward to working with Nathan on future injury matters. I am also aware firsthand that he has obtained excellent trial and settlement results in numerous cases involving members of the public harmed by railroad companies.

Joseph M. Miller Mandeville, Louisiana

Nathan is a warrior fighting the railroads. As a fellow personal injury lawyer, I have constantly been impressed with his depth of knowledge and his capabilities from case to case. I’d take him into battle with me any day against the biggest railroads and insurance companies on the planet.

Jon C. Clark Austin, Texas

Bob Pottroff has fought for the victims of the railroads’ callous disregard for safety more than any other attorney that I know. I should know because I am currently Chair-elect of the Railroad Section of ATLA.

Robert Schuetze Boulder, Colorado

Mr. Pottroff has shaken the rail industry to its very roots. Settlements are now more common as a result of the way he has exposed the industry’s wrongdoing.

Mike Easley Arkansas

Bob Pottroff’s work in railroad safety law is unmatched and he has been the source of great advice and phenomenal creativity.

In addition to his substantive contributions to railroad grade crossing safety, I have personally observed his untiring efforts and contributions to improving the integrity of the legal system.
