Headaches are an unfortunately common neurological symptom that may emerge after a serious vehicle accident. These are often tied to a mild traumatic brain injury. The continuation of the pain from post-traumatic disorder can be severe and can develop into other problems like anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Headaches, following brain injuries, can occur after truck, car and motorcycle accidents, slip and falls or even dog bites. If you are suffering from severe headaches after an accident, you may be living with post traumatic headache symptoms, a sign of a traumatic brain injury. You should always report your concerns directly to your medical professional and get a consultation from an experienced injury attorney.

What seems like a persistent headache could actually be your body’s way of telling you that you have a critical injury.

Client Reviews
When my mom, who is suffering from dementia, faced a slip and fall personal injury lawsuit, I contacted Stephen Bilkis of the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates. Not only did he provide a strategy for defending the claim, he also advised me on steps to take to avoid future personal liability. Whether you are the defendant or plaintiff in an injury case, I highly recommend Mr. Bilkis. S.M.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
I had my first encounter with Mr. Stephen Bilkis three years ago over the phone. He and his staff have been nothing but courtesy and professional. Their hard work ended with a large six-figure settlement for my case. I would highly recommend you contact his office. I want to give a special THANK YOU to Ms. Tricia Krapf. She always made me feel like a priority and was always kind and professional over the phone and email. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation. Celesta
