The Catastrophic Consequences Of Traumatic Brain Injury

Every year, nearly 2 million people suffer some form of traumatic brain injury. When these injuries are the result of another party's negligence, you are entitled to compensation.

To be brain injured does not automatically mean you lose all your mental faculties. Brain damage can seem relatively minor, like memory lapses or the inability to control emotions. But in fact, even these "minor" injuries to the brain are catastrophic, preventing you from working in the same job position, from enjoying life in the way that you used to or causing you continual embarrassment in the outside world.

The High Cost Of A Transformed Life

And — it does not take a violent accident to trigger serious brain damage. All it takes is a shaking of the brain inside the skull. Vital connections are stretched and torn. Brain tissue suffers serious bruises. Suddenly you are not quite the same person you were before the crash. The entire economics of your life have been transformed.

Here are some of the common signs that your brain has been affected:

  • Losing consciousness, even for just a moment
  • Dilation of the pupils
  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Balance problems and dizziness
  • Sleep problems
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensory changes, including smell
  • Memory problems
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Confusion that doesn't go away
  • Slurred speech
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fluid draining from ears and nose
  • Seizures
  • Numbness

Our firm represents victims of car crashes, construction accidents, accidents occurring in stores and places of business, and injuries brought on by defective products, like auto brakes or athletic equipment.

Money can't put everything right. But financial compensation can go a long way toward keeping you independent, toward feeding your family and paying your bills. Let us calculate down to the dollar what your needs will be. And then let us go get this money from the other side.
