Understanding Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are severe injuries that can potentially lead to long term or permanent consequences.  Traumatic brain injury sufferers may require surgery and long term treatment.  These serious injuries can render accident victims unable to perform daily living tasks and work obligations.  They have considerable financial and physical consequences that may be ongoing for the life of the accident victim.

The personal injury lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano have assisted several clients who sustained traumatic brain injuries in car accidents, falls, workplace accidents, and more.  We understand how severe these injuries can be and the impact they will have on every aspect of the sufferer’s life.  Our attorneys diligently fight to see that our brain injured clients receive the compensation they deserve from the party responsible for their injuries.

Signs of a Brain Injury

It is not always easy to detect a brain injury.  If you have been injured in a car or other traffic accident, it is important that you know the potential signs of a traumatic brain injury so that you can receive the medical treatment you deserve.

The signs of a brain injury include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Vision changes
  • Forgetfulness

Anyone who has potentially sustained a head injury in a car or other accident should seek medical assistance right away.  Prompt medical attention can help to diminish the risk of permanent damage.

Causes of Brain Injuries

There are numerous potential causes of brain injuries.  Some of the most common causes include: car, truck, bike, and motorcycle accidents, workplace accidents, slip and falls, and more.  Any accident that potentially involves the head striking another object or the ground, or a sudden impact that flings the head back and forth, can inflict head damage.  Wearing protective gear or your seat belt can help to reduce the risk of head injuries, but at times they cannot be prevented.

Evaluating Your Brain Injury Claim

If you have sustained a brain injury in an accident that involved negligence, you may be able to seek compensation from the party responsible for the accident.  Brain injuries can result in considerable medical expenses.  Their treatment could require hospitalization, doctor’s visits, surgery, rehabilitation, and missed time off work.  Severe brain injuries can prevent accident victims from ever returning to their jobs or their previous way of life.

Brain accident victims can seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.  It is important that they act quickly after the accident as they have a limited time within which to file their claim against the at-fault party responsible for their brain injury.
