Head Trauma & Brain Injury

Head Trauma & Brain Injury

Victims May Be the Last to Notice Brain Damage

Brain damage can occur in an accident even when there is no obvious sign of damage such as a head wound. Many victims do not even know that an injury has occurred. Family members are usually the first to notice that their loved one is not the same person since the accident.

What Are the Symptoms of Brain Injury?

A brain injury can be caused by head trauma such as striking your head on a sidewalk. It can also be caused by sudden deceleration in a car accident. If your loved one experienced a loss of consciousness or disorientation following an accident, brain damage may have occurred.

Symptoms of brain injury can include:

  • Irritability
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Loss of inhibitions

Family members often delay seeking help for a loved one’s brain injury, thinking that the symptoms will go away with time. Unfortunately, the symptoms are usually permanent.

Our goal in any personal injury accident is to make you whole — or as whole as possible given your injury — and to help your family obtain compensation for everything you have lost. Anyone who suffers a brain injury will need significant, long-term care and rehabilitation.
