Traumatic brain injuries can occur anytime there is a serious impact with the skull. The long term effects of these injuries can be permanently disabling and often alter the personality of the patient. The aftermath can be difficult not only for the injured, but for family members who have to adjust to a new reality.
If you or your family is dealing with these consequences because of the negligence of another party, you should consider speaking with an attorney about your legal rights. The injury lawyers at Aitken * Aitken * Cohn have a proven record of success handling the most complicated cases involving catastrophic injuries and can help you recover the compensation you need to face the challenges ahead.
Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation
Traumatic brain injuries are often the result of accidents such as:
- Car accidents
- Falls from heights
- Construction accidents
- Sports injuries
The most frequent cause is car accidents. Even in cases where the accident in question seems to be your fault, investigations may prove that there were defective parts, inadequate repairs or governmental liability over hazardous road conditions. It will be important to speak with an experienced attorney about your legal rights and options as soon as possible.
Traumatic Brain Injury Information
Long term complications depend on the severity of the injury, and the area of the brain that is damaged. Common symptoms include:
- Memory loss
- Emotional outbursts
- Social awkwardness
- Speech problems
A traumatic brain injury lawsuit will focus not only on the damage done, but on the lack of earnings potential for people dealing with these effects, as it can be difficult for the victims to hold down a job.
Brain damage is irreparable, meaning there is no magic cure. Therapy focuses on allowing the patient to regain as much independence as possible. Types of therapy include speech therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Traumatic brain injury litigation can help pay for these therapies, all other related medical costs, lost income and compensate you for your pain and suffering.
