Have you suffered a brain injury from an accident? If so, you must have your case reviewed by an experienced brain injury attorney at Eltringham Law Group. Brain injuries are serious and can have lifetime effects on your ability to work, earn a living, and enjoy a good quality of life.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be mild, moderate, and severe. A mild TBI might lead to temporary confusion, behavioral changes, and blurred vision. But, even if you only have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, bleeding might be happening inside your head. A thorough medical examination will determine whether or not you have a head injury.
Common Causes of Brain Injuries
Car accidents are the common cause of brain injuries. Although car accidents often cause whiplash, whiplash can also cause TBI. Also, you can suffer a brain injury when your head strikes against any hard surface during the accident.
A brain injury can also occur when your head is struck by objects. Such kind of injury can take place during sports play, inside a business, or at the workplace. But, it is important to note that not all causes of TBI are from blows or force. TBI can also occur because of penetrating wounds and extremely loud sounds.
Head injury victims may suffer from impairments of their speed, muscles, hearing, vision, or taste, depending on the injured area of the brain or head and the extent of their injuries. Also, victims may experience short or long-term changes in their memory, personality, and behavior. Brain injury can lead to extreme mood swings, physical impairment, serious headaches, and emotional suffering. Victims can seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, lost future income, disabilities pain and suffering, as well as emotional distress.
