What You Should Know About Traumatic Brain Injuries Suffered In An Accident

Accidents can cause a wide range of injuries. While some injuries are immediately obvious, others are not. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are sometimes not apparent until symptoms start to surface in the days or weeks after the accident. If you have suffered a TBI in an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, you or your family member should assert all of your rights available in order to seek monetary damages and an award for any harms and losses incurred.

You need attorneys on your side who understand how a TBI can affect an entire family and change the course of your life. Our legal team at the Law Offices of Ira M. Perlman, P.C. & Robert D. Rosen, P.C., has the knowledge, compassion and experience needed to help seriously injured clients with all aspects of a TBI case so victims can focus on healing, rehabilitation and recovery.

To discuss how we can help you and your family, call our traumatic brain injury attorneys today at 212-668-0100.

Providing Insight Into TBIs

There does not need to be any impact to the head to suffer a brain injury. Whether you were in a car accident, slip-and-fall, construction accident or any other type of serious accident, you need to be evaluated for a TBI by a medical professional. Types of brain injuries that can be diagnosed include concussions, contrecoup injuries, subdural hematomas, subarachnoid hematomas, contusions, open head wounds and more.

In addition to any visible signs of trauma to the head, doctors look for a range of signs and symptoms, including:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Pupil dilation
  • Lack of motor control
  • Mood or personality changes
  • Loss of memory
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Light or sound sensitivity
  • Sleep disturbances

Many of these signs and symptoms will not be immediately apparent after an accident. It may take days or weeks for symptoms to begin to show. This is why it is important to be seen by a doctor immediately or soon after an accident and be rechecked as symptoms develop. Ignoring or dismissing symptoms can be dangerous and put you at further risk.

The Impact Of A Brain Injury

Many accident victims who suffer a TBI find that their lives substantially change due to the injury. They often need lifelong medical care, accommodations in their homes and may be unable to return to their previous job. This is why it is so critical to have a skilled lawyer on your side. We know how difficult it can be to cope with a new way of life and/or new financial challenges subsequent to a brain injury. Our firm is dedicated to pursuing the compensation you may be entitled to, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and other monetary damages for any harms and losses.
