Brain Injury Lawyers


 

Many types of serious accidents can result in a brain injury. The traumatic effects of a brain injury can often last a lifetime; leaving the victim of the injury and their families to cope with a potentially debilitating injury.

A brain injury or traumatic brain injury can be the result of a blunt trauma to the head. Every year, over 1.3 million Americans suffer from some form of impact or trauma to the head/skull.

Head injuries and trauma that result in brain damage may require years of consistent rehabilitation, treatment and ongoing medical care. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, over 1 million victims are treated every year for suffering some type of brain injury. Falls, such as slip and falls, trip and falls or falling over objects account for over 28% of all entire brain injury incidents. Car accidents, traffic accidents and other motor-vehicle accidents make up 20% of brain injury incidents with the remaining roughly 30% being caused by assaults or strikes.

Brain injuries can cause many different types of functional and thought-process effects including the inability to properly speak, think, loss of sensation, loss of mobility and loss of language skills.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury it is important to seek proper legal advice and representation for your claim.

Accidents that May Cause Brain Injury:

Some of the common signs and symptoms of a brain injury are:

  • Headaches or neck pain that will not go away
  • Persistent dizziness, loss of balance, or light-headedness
  • Difficulty remembering, concentrating, or making decisions
  • Slowness in thinking, speaking, acting, or reading
  • Mental, psychological, or physical fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Mood changes, such as feeling sad or depressed or angry for no reason

 

If you experience any of these symptoms, especially after a blow to the head or being violently shaken, you should go to the emergency room immediately. You may have bleeding in the brain that needs immediate medical attention to prevent more serious injury or even death.  A CT Scan or MRI will show the bleeding.
