Understanding the Challenges Posed by Brain Injuries
Brain injuries typically occur due to a sudden and forceful blow to the head, such as a collision with a steering wheel during a car accident. The symptoms can vary depending on the specific area of the brain affected and the accident’s severity.
Victims of such injuries may experience the following:
Mild Brain Injury or Concussion can include temporary confusion, headaches, and dizziness.
Moderate Brain Injury: Symptoms may involve nausea, memory loss, chronic headaches, and difficulties with cognitive function.
Traumatic Brain Injury: This category encompasses more severe symptoms such as convulsions or seizures, extensive memory loss, persistent headaches, mood swings, personality changes, and the inability to function as before.
It is common for individuals who have sustained a brain injury to feel relatively normal immediately following the accident. They may experience slight dizziness or fatigue but decline any medical treatment. Unfortunately, this can be a critical mistake, as brain injury symptoms may not fully manifest until later. By then, it may be too late to address the issue effectively. Therefore, it is imperative for anyone who has suffered any form of head injury to seek appropriate medical screening and treatment promptly.
Pursuing Compensation for Your Losses
Once we accept your brain injury or wrongful death case, our first step is to conduct a comprehensive investigation to establish the exact cause of the injury and identify all parties who may be held liable. We then pursue compensation from the relevant insurance company or workers’ compensation benefits. Rest assured, our attorneys will build a strong and compelling case with the assistance of trusted physicians and specialists who specialize in brain injuries.
We invite you to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your brain injury concerns. It is important to note that all personal injury matters are handled contingently. You do not have to worry about upfront legal fees, as we only collect payment if we successfully recover your compensation.
A brain injury after a car accident can be a life-altering event, affecting the injured individual and their entire support system.
