Traumatic brain injuries can have devastating and life-altering consequences for both the victims and their families. Accidents in cars and other vehicles are the primary cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI), but slip-and-falls, accidents at work, sports injuries, and physical assaults are also common reasons someone might suffer a brain injury.
Doctors use phrases like “closed head injury” or “post-concussion syndrome” to describe these types of brain injuries. Sometimes there are associated symptoms like seizures, skull fractures, subdural hematomas, brain hemorrhaging, amnesia and contusion of the brain. On the other hand, the more mild traumatic brain injury cases can be hard to recognize.
In some cases, a person with a TBI might seem normal, and regular medical tests may not catch the injury. These types of cases sometimes require various medical professionals as part of the legal team, to help understand and prove the cause of the injury.
Recovery from any type of brain injury is a long process and financial issues can make it seem even longer. It is frequently impossible for the victim to return to work right away, and some cases may require more long-term care options. The brain injury attorneys at East Coast Trial Lawyers can help you get the settlement or verdict you need, allowing your family to face the future with a little more security and stability.
