Brain Injury

Brain Injury|Personal Injury Case

Traumatic brain injuries are one of the leading causes of death and disability in children and young adults. A brain injury may impair your cognitive, physical and psychological faculties temporarily or permanently. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1,700,000 people suffer a brain injury each year. .

A common misconception is that you have to hit your head in order to have a brain injury. Not true. For example, a brain injury can occur as a result of a car crash in which the head is never struck. On impact, the car comes to a sudden stop. At the same time, your head violently thrusts forward or backward. The sudden acceleration-deceleration can shear your brain's axons (nerve fibers).

Some common symptoms associated with a mild brain injury include: fatigue, headaches, loss of vision, memory loss, inability to focus, confusion, sleeplessness, loss of balance, emotionally instability, depression, seizures, nausea, loss of smell and sensitivity to light.

Symptoms of a brain injury may not occur until days or weeks after the accident. Thus, if you were taken to the emergency room from the accident scene, emergency room personnel may miss the diagnosis. As part of our initial case evaluation, we will attempt to determine whether you should be evaluated by doctors that specialize in brain injuries.
