Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Despite a widely-held belief that traumatic brain injuries are rare occurrences, everyday mishaps—such as sports-related incidents, slip-and-falls, and bike collisions—lead to debilitating brain injuries on a regular basis. Unlike other physical injuries, these head traumas are particularly worrisome because of the lingering possibility of cognitive damage that may affect memory, motor skills, and core personality traits. Furthermore, symptoms of traumatic brain injury commonly have a delayed onset, meaning a brain injury victim may not feel the extent of their injuries until weeks later. This can lead to additional medical complications, such as a misdiagnosis or shirked emergency room visit. While these injuries can arise out of unlucky circumstances, negligence from another party is the cause of brain injury all too often. Brain injuries caused by negligence are common in automobile collisions, motorcycle accidents, and instances of a defective product.
Brain injuries range in severity and can be anything from a mild concussion to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Although most head traumas are mild-to-medium brain injuries, any type of impact to the head can be devastating for victims and their loved ones alike. Not only is there the pain of dealing with the immediate aftermath of the injury, but there is also the difficulty of coping with whether or not full functionality of the brain will ever be restored. At Mokaram Law Firm, our well-versed brain injury lawyers understand that these injuries require a specialized degree of care than other physical injuries. There is the need for immediate medical treatment along with emergency room services, physical therapy, rehabilitative services, and other necessary accommodations can cause expenses to rise exponentially. Our legal team believes that the difficult recovery process of a brain injury should not be deterred by financial strain, especially if the injury was caused by the careless actions of another.
Types of Brain Injury
The symptoms and recovery rate for a brain injury vary with the kind of injury suffered. Usually, brain trauma will cause some extent of dizziness, memory loss, concentration problems, slowness in thinking, or change in mood and behavior. Common types of brain injury include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Closed brain injury
- Open (penetrating) brain injury
- Acquired brain injury
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
In children and developing infants, a brain injury may manifest in the loss of new skills, irritability, balance problems, or changes in behavioral patterns. These symptoms may be harder to detect than adult brain injuries.
