According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injury ranks as one of the leading causes of death and disability in this country. An injured person might have a variety of symptoms, including impaired memory, vision, speech or thought processes. Personality changes, including depression, have been known to occur following a brain injury.
Passengers and drivers involved in a motor vehicle accident might not immediately realize that an injury has occurred. Injuries to the brain can happen even without a telltale bump or bruise. Bruising of the brain might take place in a high-speed collision as the occupants and the vehicle come to a sudden and abrupt stop.
An individual experiencing headaches, dizziness, vision impairment, seizures, impaired coordination, speech impairment and vomiting following an injury to the head might not associate the symptoms with an injury to the brain. For this reason, it’s extremely important to seek medical attention any time you suffer a blow to the head.
Car accidents and slip and fall accidents are the most common causes of injuries to the brain according to the CDC. Other causes of brain injuries include:
An injury to the brain may require extensive medical treatment, including surgery, extended hospital stays and home health care following release from the hospital. Recovery might require physical and occupational therapy and rehabilitation that could prevent a victim from returning to work. Lost earnings coupled with mounting medical bills and everyday living expenses can take a toll on a victim.
Mr. Bloom is available to offer professional advice and guidance in order to help you through the recovery process. He will fight aggressively to protect your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve.
