Aggressive Representation For Brain Injuries After An Accident
Brain injuries can be immediate and obvious after an accident, or they can be latent and not appear for years after the repetitive trauma has occurred, such as in the case of sports injuries. Recovering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) – tearing, swelling, bruising or bleeding of the brain within the skull – frequently happens in stages, if at all. Many times, the consequence of any type of brain injury is catastrophic life-altering changes.
Brain injuries can result from a vast range of accidents, including:
- Car or truck crashes
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Slip- or trip-and-fall accidents
- Near drownings
- Birth injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Blunt force trauma from falling objects
- Criminal assault
- Repetitive or one-time sports injuries
- Hunting accidents
There are several types of head trauma wounds that may result in traumatic brain injuries, such as:
- Open head wounds
- Skull fractures
- Spinal cord trauma
- Closed head wounds
- Prescription misdiagnosis
Closed head wounds can be difficult to prove and diagnose. Specialists physicians will use a range of evaluative procedures and equipment including a computerized tomography scan (CT scan) to determine the extent of damage.
You Have Two Years To File A Traumatic Brain Injury Claim
Your head injuries – or your loved one’s – following any type of accident will need medical attention right away, even if there is no immediate sign of blood or trauma. Symptoms of brain injuries may include:
- Seizures or convulsions
- Clear fluids from the ears or nose
- Headaches that do not go away or worsen
- Uneven dilation of the eyes
It is important to keep all medical records and to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer right away.
