Life With a Traumatic Brain Injury

Over the years, I myself, and our firm have represented numerous individuals that suffered a head injury after an accident. Most often I see it caused by an auto accident. The accident happens so quickly and boom! Your head hit the airbag and then jolted back into the seat or vice versa. I have had clients who had their head hit the window. A black out period typically happens. It can last a few seconds to much longer than that. A concussion is diagnosed by the emergency room and then you wonder, what is next? Next depends on the level of impact you suffered. I have represented those with a mild head injury who appear to be able to function during the day, but when you look close, you see what is really happening. I have also represented those with a more severe head injury that results in seizures and life long problems where a guardian needs to be appointed. In each case, no matter what level of head injury you call it, it is sad for the victim and sad for the family. I can’t do anything to make it go away. I can’t fix it. I can help make the symptoms easier to manage and deal with by making sure you get the treatment the doctor recommends paid by the insurance company. I can help make sure you get the money you deserve from the person who caused this accident and change in life. I can’t waive a magic wand through, which is what I would really want to do. I can across a great article written by someone suffering a brain injury from a fall. It details what she is going through. It helps you understand what is happening. If you have a loved one suffering from this, take a minute to read the article.
