Brain injuries are one of the most potentially devastating aspects of a personal injury claim.
Speech, damage to the senses, body control, and changes in consciousness are all obvious consequences from a major brain injury.
However, other areas such as memory, balance, and even appetite and mood control can also be affected. These consequences can be life-altering, but can be very difficult to diagnose, since the brain injury itself may prevent the injured person from understanding or even knowing what is happening.
Trucking collisions and high-speed car accidents often cause brain injuries, but they can come from any kind of injury, whether accidents while riding a motorcycle or bicycle, being struck as a pedestrian, hitting your head after being knocked down by an animal, or any number of other injuries caused by someone else’s negligence.
If you suffer a head injury, have it checked by a doctor. If a friend or family member suffers a head injury, keep an eye on them. Are they suddenly moody, sensitive to light, have trouble standing or walking, do they easily become confused, or are they unable to think of words? These are all potential symptoms of a brain injury.
The personal injury lawyers of the Miller Law Group, with over 50 years of combined experience, have seen diagnosis and treatment of brain injuries evolve significantly in the last few decades. Still, observation by friends and family is still one of the most critical tools in diagnosing and treating these injuries, because that’s often the main factor in getting the injured person to a doctor.
