How Do I Know if I’m Suffering From a Brain Injury?
Brain injuries can range from a concussion to severe traumatic brain injuries, each requiring a different level of medical expertise in order to treat.
Due to the sensitivity of the nervous system as a whole and the variation seen in different types of brain injuries, no two brain injury victims will have the same prognosis, needs for treatment and rehabilitation, and lasting effects on their lives. Sometimes symptoms of a brain injury don’t emerge until weeks or months after the accident, while other symptoms will be noticeable right away.
Some people will completely recover, while others will be left to deal with ongoing lifestyle adjustments as a result of their injury; in really severe cases, brain injury victims may succumb to their injuries and die. One symptom of brain injuries is sometimes present even in mild brain injuries, referred to as post-traumatic amnesia (PTA), which means that a victim may not remember the details of an accident or even their own lives leading up to it – especially if they lost consciousness during their injury.
It’s because of these wide-ranging effects and needs that we are not a large, one plan fits all injuries type of law firm. Each client and case is unique and is deserving of their own personalized road to recovery.
What Kinds of Accidents Could Cause a Brain Injury?
When people think of brain injuries, many tend to think solely of a severe motor vehicle accident or other violent, traumatic events. However, brain injuries are diverse in their level of severity or source. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect any person of any age and can occur during even what may seem like a minor incident. NOVA Injury Law has experience with all aspects of Personal Injury Law, including brain injuries, and is prepared to evaluate your case at no cost to you.
Any time you strike your head, or any time your brain is shaken, stopped abruptly while in motion, deprived of oxygen, or compressed due to the presence of blood inside the skull, you are at serious risk for a brain injury.
While not an exhaustive list, it is possible to obtain a brain injury from any of the following sources:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Birth Injuries
- Slips, Trips, and Falls
- Exposure to Faulty or Harmful Products
- And More
Do I Need to Be Evaluated if I’m Not Hurt Badly?
Are you certain you haven’t been injured? If you are involved in any kind of accident, it is important that you either seek emergency medical care right away or a follow-up with your primary doctor. Too often do we see a victim with a serious injury whose conditions worsen due to a lack of prompt medical attention.
Because an accident or dangerous situation causes adrenaline to course through the body, an injured victim might not recognize the severity of their injuries until after that adrenaline wears off. Additionally, due to the nature of some brain injuries like concussions, their symptoms might not reveal themselves until some time has passed. That is why most types of injury claims have a 1-2 year window of opportunity to file.
