Assessing The Causes Of Your Injuries
Any sort of head trauma, whether suffered in a car accident, a slip and fall incident or another situation, has the potential to cause permanent brain injuries, affecting a person's ability to function normally in the long term.
While a skull fracture can cause immediately obvious damage, closed-head trauma can cause concussions and other serious injuries such as cerebral edema or hematoma. Some symptoms may not become fully apparent until sometime after the accident.
Post-concussion syndrome is a frequent result of head injuries, causing symptoms such as headaches, difficulty in concentrating, memory loss and emotional problems that can be temporary or permanent. In extreme cases, head injuries can cause permanent brain damage and paralysis.
Pursuing Your Case For Compensation
If you have suffered a head injury in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, that person may be legally responsible for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, life care, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Many brain and head injury cases require the involvement of experts such as neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, vocational experts, life care planners and economists to demonstrate the damages sustained by the injured person over their lifetime. Our attorneys are experienced at working with qualified experts in these types of cases.
