Helping Those Who Suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injuries and head injuries are sometimes difficult to diagnose and treat. They result from a minor bump on the head to a horrific traumatic brain injury (TBI). These brain and head injuries occur in almost every kind of accident, including an auto accident, bicycle accident, auto-pedestrian accident, slip, and fall, physical assault, playing sports, accidents at home, and accidents at work.
These injuries can be diagnosed through some of their most common symptoms: headaches, difficulty focusing, blurred vision, problem remembering, and extreme sensitivity to light. Victims of brain and head injuries also typically experience nausea, chronic headaches, and severe mood swings. Sometimes with moderate to severe TBI's, the conditions can be extremely devastating to one's life and can be a permanent disability. If you or your loved one suffers from a brain or head injury stemming from an accident, please contact our experienced South Jordan brain injury attorneys for a free consultation.
Delayed Symptoms Doesn't Mean Delayed Treatment
A brain and head injury's resulting symptoms vary from mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the brain's damage. It is imperative to obtain medical treatment immediately after experiencing head trauma. Typically MRIs and CT scans are utilized to diagnose and treat brain injuries that sometimes include bleeding on the brain.
However, many TBIs do not exhibit any symptoms for some time after the actual trauma occurred. The sooner an examination is sought, and treatment is started, the faster the healing process will be. Often treatment for TBIs and other brain and head injuries is required from several different healthcare providers, including neurologists, physical therapists, and optometrists, among many others. An experienced brain injury attorney on your side will help guide you through your treatment to help you obtain the best results to get back to your everyday life.
Recovering Compensation for a Traumatic Brain Injury and Head Injury
An extensive list of damages may be included in a traumatic brain injury and head injury claim. Some of these include:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Loss of past and future wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of household services (housekeeping, childcare, etc.)
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of parental companionship and guidance
- Mental anguish
- Other possible compensation depending on where the drugs or alcohol involved in the accident were derived and the driving history of the individual driving under the influence
If the traumatic brain injury and head injury occurred due to especially egregious or even intentional actions, additional compensation might be sought through punitive damages.
