Accidents happen all the time, as most of us can attest to.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a brain injury after a recent accident, and you want to hold the other driver responsible, call us now for a consultation. 

What are Brain Injuries?

As one of our brain injury lawyers can explain, brain injuries are among some of the most common injuries for vehicular collisions, and can cause long-term or permanent changes to one’s health. This is especially true for injuries that are on a severe to critical range, where victims had to receive emergency care and lifelong support financially thereafter. Symptoms that a brain injury is present include:

      • Losing period of consciousness
      • Nausea and/or vomiting
      • Blurry vision
      • Memory problems
      • Changes in behavior/mood
      • Irritability
      • Persistent headache
      • Trouble sleeping
      • Sleeping more than normal
      • Confusion
      • Cognitive problems
      • Depression
      • Fatigue
      • Dizziness
      • Seizures

 

A concussion, which is a mild brain injury, may only result in a few negative symptoms that will clear up with some rest. By comparison, a penetrating head injury from debris or a weapon in the crash often requires urgent emergency care, otherwise the situation can turn fatal quickly. Depending on the brain injury, a person also may be vulnerable to an infection that can hinder neurological functions. Not all injuries to the brain are due to a direct outside force, and instead may occur from inhaling or being exposed to a toxic factor in the environment.
