If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury you should consult an Attorney as soon as possible to discuss your possibility of a lawsuit is someone has been negligent and at fault for your injuries.  

 

EXAMPLES OF TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Some people have come into our office and stated they woke up in an ambulance a little fuzzy and unaware of exactly how they got there.  They are taken to the emergency room and treated.  The emergency room had given the recovering person a concussion recovery handbook.   The individual doubted there were any long term affects of the concussion.  However, they discover later that their focus has been affected.  

CONCUSSSIONS

Mild traumatic brain injuries are under diagnosed.  They hide in the margin.  The patient will "deny loss of consciousness" in the same ambulance report that notes his repetitive questioning.  

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF TRAUAMATIC BRAIN INJURY

A mild traumatic brain injury can seem mild to the treating nuerologist.  However, it can be anything but mild to the person being affected.  

Cloudy thinking

headaches

difficulty reading

some executive functioning deficits

These can be difficult and make life very problematic.

RECOVERY

The recovery from traumatic brain injury could take a long time. The majority of people that suffer mild brain injuries do recover however there coud be long term problems and this makes the amount of money you recover problematic because you may not know how much you need to fully recover.  

And if you suffer even a small brain injury the chances of having a much worse brain injury down the line is incrased.  For example you suffered a mild brain injury and you again suffer a mild brain injury the damage the second time could be much worse.  

If you are an injured person you should consult both legal and medical help to get all the compensation you may need for your brain health and to make sure that you do not have recurring problems.  Or at the very least you are properly compensated for the care of the current injuries.  You may need to speak with a neurosyphologist and a vocational rehabilitation expert to illustrate the individuals income or lost income potential, lost earning capacity, and so forth.

So if you have any questions give us a call at 559441-1418.
