Our law firm has dealt with complex brain injury and catastrophic impairment cases. A brain injury is life altering and is an injury that changes the brain's neuron activity. The normal function of the brain is affected. There are 2 types of brain injuries: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). A TBI can be caused by an injury to the head, where an ABI may occur as a result of lack of oxygen to the brain affecting its normal functioning. A Neurologist or Neuropsychiatrist will often be involved in a case of brain injury, and they will order tests such as an MRI, MRS, PET, and SPECT scans. Other treaters may become involved as well, such as occupational and physical therapists, speech therapists, and Neuropsychologists. A specialized team of treaters is important to your case.
Our Personal Injury Lawyers have experience dealing with traumatic brain injury cases and spinal cord injury cases. Traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries can result from a car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, gun shot wounds, abusive head trauma, workplace injury, sports injury, falls (including grocery store, mall, apartment, commercial properties), trucking, cyclist accident, construction accidents, boat accident, ATV or snowmobile accident, ski accident, occupier's liability, birth brain injury (lack of oxygen to the brain of a baby) or any other type of accident. Brain injury often times may result in coma, vegetative state, or minimally conscious state. Injured victims of brain injury often require long-term rehabilitation and care. Sometimes there are no visible wounds after a car accident, but the impact may result in the brain colliding with the skull causing serious injury. A person may begin to suffer from bruising of the brain or hemorrhaging.
Some victims may experience Mild traumatic brain injuries, with symptoms including headaches, loss of consciousness for a few moments, nausea or vomiting, difficulty sleeping, loss of balance, memory loss, concentration difficulties, mood changes, anxiety, depression, dizziness, fatigue, confusion or disorientation. Serious traumatic brain injuries can involve loss of coordination, serious confusion, slurred speech, ongoing nausea, ongoing headaches, loss of consciousness for hours.
