Knowledgeable Brain And Head Injury Representation
Many accidents that involve impact to the head can cause serious injuries, including car accidents, truck crashes, motorcycle collisions, and bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Even if you were wearing a helmet, you can suffer a serious injury to your head. Brain injuries can be sustained in slip-and-falls, as well as due to defective products as well.
Brain and head injuries can lead to slurred speech, loss of memory, behavioral changes, mood swings and other negative effects. We handle all types of head injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury: The severity of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may range from mild (impacting your day-to-day life) to severe (rendering a person incapacitated and in a vegetative state). A TBI can also be fatal.
- Concussions: Even if you did not lose consciousness in an accident, you may have suffered a concussion due to the forces that were applied in the accident.
- Closed head injuries: When there are no visible wounds, people tend to think that they are fine. However, a closed head injury can cause many symptoms and last for years if not diagnosed and treated immediately following an accident.
- Open head wound: Most individuals will seek medical treatment if they see that their head has been split open in an accident. These injuries are often treatable, but may need antibiotics to deal with infection or plastic surgery to minimize scarring, depending on the location of the wound.
- Contrecoup injury: When the brain slides around in the skull during an accident, it may suffer a bruise on the opposite side of the head from where the force was applied. For instance, if you were injured in a rear-end crash, you may suffer a contrecoup injury to the front of your brain, located behind your forehead.
