A Traumatic Brain Injury Can Change Your Life
Blows to the head and brain are among the most common and potentially serious of all injuries. The most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include falls, motor vehicle accidents and being struck in the head — making anyone who travels in a motor vehicle or works around heavy equipment especially vulnerable.
At Wood & Carlton, P.C., our attorneys understand the debilitating effects of brain injuries and will help you recover compensation for the physical and financial injuries and losses you and your family incur. We have successfully represented thousands of people throughout Mississippi and Tennessee, helping them obtain the compensation that they need to recover and move forward with their lives.
No Two Brain Injuries Are Alike
The human brain is exceedingly complex, and the full extent of many traumatic brain injuries may not be fully realized until weeks, months or even years after a car or work accident. What’s more, while your doctor may do his or her best to provide a comprehensive diagnosis and prognosis, there is no set standard when it comes to brain injuries: Two people who appear to suffer the same type of injury and damage can have very different short and long-term outcomes.
Side effects of a traumatic brain injury many include:
- Dizziness, nausea and balance problems
- Increased drowsiness and prolonged fatigue
- Speech impairments
- Difficulty concentrating
- Trouble sleeping
- Sensory sensitivity problems
- Mood changes including depression and increased aggression
If you or a family member was involved in an accident that resulted in a blow to the head, it is very important to see a doctor as soon as possible. In recent years, the damaging and prolonged negative health effects of even seemingly minor concussions have come to light, and the measures you take in the immediate wake of an accident can make a big difference in terms of your recovery.
