Document, Document, Document: From a legal standpoint, we recommend you write down your account of the head injury, and keep a journal from the day of the incident onward of any abnormal feeling about your body. Take photos of any bruises, bleeding, and have witnesses and physicians take detailed account. The more detail you have the easier it is for an attorney to assess your case.
