Traumatic Brain Injury Accidents
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by impacts to the skull. Our attorneys have handled some of the most complicated injury claims and can assist you if you’ve been injured by the following:
- Car accident
- Motorcycle accident
- Contact sports
- Violent assaults
- Falls from elevations
- Any other accident that causes an impact to the skull
Accidents are often caused by the negligence of other parties. Even in cases where you may believe that the accident was your fault, a traumatic brain injury lawyer will evaluate the details of the accident to determine liability. For example, in car crashes where there were no other drivers involved, an investigation might uncover problems such as:
- Manufacturing defects (e.g. faulty tires or brakes)
- Improper repairs or maintenance
- Dangerous road conditions
Treatment and Long Term Complications
Long term complications of traumatic brain injuries are often contingent on which area of the brain is damaged. Patients might suffer permanent disabilities such as:
- Changes in personality
- Memory loss
- Trouble controlling emotions
- Difficulty interacting socially
- Trouble with speech
- Problems understanding what people are saying
- Difficulty forming a thought
- Chronic headaches
Treatments for traumatic brain injuries usually focus on helping patients regain as much independence as possible while they learn to cope with new limitations and challenges. Speech therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy can all help. A traumatic brain injury lawyer can assist you not only by helping secure the financial resources needed, but will have many contacts for the specialists needed for treatment.
