Meningioma After a Brain Injury Caused by a Car Accident

Car accidents leave over 100 people dead and thousands injured every day in the US. Several of them sustain traumatic brain injuries. Some die shortly afterward, many successfully recover, and several others develop long-term complications and health issues.

One of the health complications some people may subsequently develop after suffering a brain injury in a car crash is meningioma. Let’s learn what that is and what legal options you may have if you or a loved one develops the condition following a car accident.

What Is Meningioma?

Meningioma is a tumor of the central nervous system. It forms in the tissues/membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord, called meninges, making it the most common type of primary brain tumor. According to John Hopkins Medicine, about 30% of all brain tumors are meningiomas.

Can You Develop Meningioma Due to a Car Accident?

Meningioma is a slow-growing tumor and can exist silently for years before being identified, making it difficult to pinpoint its exact cause. However, considering that trauma is one of its known potential causes, healthcare experts believe that the trauma from brain injuries sustained in serious car crashes may lead to it as well. The chances are low, but the risk is there, and so is the law to ensure patients can get the required treatment.

What to Do If You Develop Meningioma After a Car Accident in Nevada?

Serious vehicle crashes and collisions can cause blunt-force trauma to the brain that might lead to meningiomas. Proving it in the court, however, can be challenging. The primary reason is the late diagnosis of the tumor in many cases. Hiring a lawyer can help!
