Brain injuries impact victims’ entire lives
With head injuries, symptoms often do not appear until months or years after an accident, and when they do begin to show, they can be severe and last the rest of your life. Recently, there has been a lot of attention on former professional football players and the issues they often experience once their playing days are over. In very serious cases, these individuals suffer debilitating mental health conditions, resulting in memory loss and violent mood swings. We often work with clients dealing with issues stemming from motorcycle accidents, sports injuries, slips and falls, and other accidents. There are many different symptoms of traumatic brain injury, including:
- Persistent headaches
- Difficulty making decisions
- Easily forgetting people’s names
- Lack of motivation
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Memory problems
- Problems with numbers and letters
- Trouble focusing on tasks.
The costs to treat these injuries can be astronomical, sometimes involving multiple surgeries, long-term rehabilitation and permanent disability. Our firm can help you get the compensation you need after a serious injury.
Taking legal action after a head injury
How you proceed with a personal injury lawsuit depends on the severity of your head injury and the current and future medical care required. Regardless, it’s critical that you maintain thorough medical records and continue to document the symptoms of your injury on a daily basis. You should also speak with a skilled lawyer from our firm as soon as possible to find out if you can seek damages from the individuals or entities at fault. If your claim is successful, you may be able to receive compensation that covers medical bills, loss of income, the costs of rehabilitation, your reduced quality of life, and the pain and suffering you’ve had to endure.
