Each year, nearly 2 million people in the U.S. suffer a traumatic brain injury. Many of these brain injuries are the consequence of accidents caused by the negligence of others, and sadly, result in permanent disability or even death.
The effects of a traumatic brain injury can be devastating, not only for the individual who suffers the injury, but for their family, as well. Our personal injury lawyers have a true understanding of the difficulties and burdens that accompany a traumatic brain injury.
Brain injury symptoms include dizziness, confusion, slurred speech, headache, blurred vision, nausea or vomiting, weakness or numbness of limbs, emotional or behavioral complications, loss of coordination, seizures, and learning difficulties. In more sever situations; victims are left in a coma or vegetable state.
If a brain injury occurred to you or a loved one, due to auto or truck accident, where another person was at fault, there may be grounds for a brain injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania. Litigation may be necessary in other circumstances, such as medical malpractice from a doctor’s failure to exercise reasonable care or a slip and fall where the premises was not properly maintained.
A blow to the head is not necessary to cause a brain injury. In many occurrences, a high impact resulting in a shaking or jolting, such as a car or truck accident, can cause a brain injury.
Individuals who play contact sports, such as football or hockey are at a greater risk of developing a traumatic brain injury. These individuals are more likely than any other demographic to get a second concussion before an existing concussion has fully healed. This can often lead to permanent traumatic brain injury that will diminish quality of life. If you or a loved one has received any type of traumatic brain injury, you should immediately seek medical attention. A neurologist should order a CAT scan to fully assess the extent of your brain injuries. Soon thereafter you should call an experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer to review all of your legal options.
