Scott Carr Discusses Traumatic Brain Injuries

Watch as Scott Carr, Attorney at Law, discusses traumatic brain injuries with Good Day Tulsa.

The 3 main symptoms that we observe are:

  1. Physical symptoms: you can have many physical symptoms from a TBI such as headaches, vision issues, blurry vision, double vision, ringing in your ears, fatigue, and loss of balance or coordination.
  2. Cognitive symptoms: a person suffering from a TBI might be more forgetful or have difficulty concentrating and sometimes they have brain fog or lack of sharpness. They don’t have the same mental capacity as they did before.
  3. Emotional symptoms: most suffering from a TBI don’t feel like the same person as they were before. They may be more irritable or may have a personality change. They may feel anxious or depressed.

Can you get a traumatic brain injury without something physically hitting your head?

A violent jostling or jarring of the head is enough to cause a TBI. The brain has a soft almost gelatinous-like consistency and the inside of the skull has a number of sharp and bony edges. If you have a whiplash type of event, the brain can move within the skull. Those sharp, bony ridges can damage the brain and lead to hemorrhages or bleeding.

Can you have a TBI without it showing up on a CT Scan or MRI on the ER?

The goal of a CT Scan in the ER is to determine if you are someone that needs emergency brain surgery, not to determine if you have another type of TBI that will affect you long term.

If you have been injured, call Carr and Carr offices in Oklahoma City or Tulsa today for a free consultation.

Distracted Driving is an Ongoing Issue Across Oklahoma

Watch our interview with Michael Carr as he discusses distracted driving with Good Day Tulsa.    

What are the most common things people get distracted within the car?

The most common is a cell phone and many cars today have come equipped with hands-free device technology to help combat this distraction. However recent studies have shown that even if you are using hands-free in the car, if you are speaking with someone it lessens your ability to pay attention to the road.

Who is most at risk to be driving while distracted?

Teenage drivers are the most at-risk drivers to be distracted drivers. For teenagers ages 15-20, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death. Teenagers don’t typically drive by themselves; they have other teenagers in the car and they don’t typically stay quiet.

What happens if you are hit by someone that is clearly driving while distracted?

If you are involved in a collision and the other person was distracted or on the phone, you can receive compensation for medical bills, time off work, and your pain and suffering. Call Carr and Carr Attorneys today to speak with an attorney today.
