These effects could have a disastrous impact on you and your family’s life. The attorneys at Anzellotti, Sperling, Pazol & Small are highly knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to representing victims of traumatic brain injuries. We’re ready to protect your rights after an accident has left you with physical limitations and overwhelming medical bills.
Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury
It’s important to understand that a traumatic brain injury is much different from other injuries, in that it disrupts the normal functionality of the brain. This type of injury occurs when the victim sustains either a blow or penetrating injury to their head. Not every head injury will result in TBI. However, when it happens, it can alter the victim’s mental state and even cause personality changes in more severe cases.
For victims of TBI, the recovery process can be extremely difficult. In fact, some individuals need treatment for the rest of their lives. Relearning simple motor skills, speech therapy, and mental health counseling may all be necessary. Some victims are never able to resume life as they knew it before the accident. If this has happened to you, it’s important you get the compensation needed to help you with things like the cost of ongoing medical treatment and lost wages. Our legal team can work with you to determine if negligence was involved in your accident and seek the appropriate damages for your injury.
Symptoms of TBI
While a traumatic brain injury is always serious, it may initially seem like a minor head injury. Sometimes victims don’t notice anything until weeks, even months down the road. That’s why it’s important to see a doctor right away, regardless of the severity of the accident. If you suspect you’ve suffered a TBI, but aren’t sure, there are a number of warnings signs to look for. These can include:
- Trouble sleeping
- Memory issues
- Suddenly feeling confused
- Mood swings
- Blurry vision
- Unexplained anxiety or depression
- Sensitivity to light
If you’re noticing any of these symptoms after a head injury, it’s important to visit a doctor for a diagnosis. There’s a chance the accident you were involved in was a lot more serious than you thought. If you’ve already been diagnosed with TBI and feel it was a result of the negligent or reckless behavior of someone else, you need personal injury representation right away.
