Head injuries can be some of the most serious injuries that someone can suffer, and not just because of the direct impacts of the injuries. There are many secondary consequences of a serious traumatic brain injury, and they can get even worse if left untreated. In many unfortunate instances, someone who suffers a brain injury does not seek medical attention, since they can not actually SEE the injury that they have suffered. This is extremely dangerous and could lead to things like coma, permanent brain damage, mood disorders, and more.
If you have suffered from a head injury, you may be at risk of more issues than you can immediately recognize, and these issues can impact the rest of your life. A traumatic brain injury should never be taken lightly, and should always be addressed by a trusted medical professional.
If you have suffered from a head injury such as a concussion or another type of traumatic brain injury, contact us as soon as possible to schedule a free initial consultation to learn about your legal rights for compensation. If your injuries are the result of an accident or situation that another party caused by either negligence, malpractice, recklessness, or some other action (or inaction) that puts them at fault, you may be able to seek additional money from either them or their insurance company depending on the situation. These additional damages go beyond your medical bills and lost wages and seek to compensate you for things like the emotional trauma that you must endure as well.

A traumatic brain injury is a blanket term for any type of injury that a brain experienced due to an impact or another type of trauma like a blow to the head or something else that causes the brain to rattle around in the skull. This could be something like blood clotting, nerve damage or disruptions to the normal brain activity, bleeding, concussions, or other issues that seriously affect a victim’s ability to utilize their brain and normal cognitive functions.
The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can include (but are not limited to) the following:
The symptoms listed above can be experienced all together, separately, in various combinations, and in varying degrees of severity. The brain is one of, if not the most, complicated organ in the body, and each injury manifests itself differently in each victim.
