What Happens After Suffering Brain Trauma

When brain injuries occur, the first thing victims and their families must deal with are the physical, emotional and mental effects resulting from the damage to the brain.

Traumatic brain injuries can have a host of consequences such as the following:

  • Physical disability and loss of motor skills
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Problems with memory
  • Seizures
  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental illness
  • Changes in personality

Along with these symptoms, victims and their families also have to deal with the emotional reactions to a traumatic brain injury. Individuals may feel angry, fearful about the future, or sad about the things they can no longer do. These emotions are all normal responses to what is unarguably a life-altering injury. Victims may come to grips with these feelings over time, but shouldn't hesitate to speak with a therapist or counselor if they feel it is necessary.

Unfortunately, many families and victims can also expect to suffer financially after a brain injury. The injured person will likely require medical treatment, may be unable to work for an extended period, and might even need to be in a long-term care facility indefinitely.

In situations where another party's negligence or carelessness caused an individual's brain injury, obtaining the services of an attorney is crucial.

Lawyers can often force the liable parties to take responsibility for their actions and compensate the victim for:

  • Pain & suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Hospital bills
  • Other expenses related to the injury

We provide free case evaluations and consultations to help you make an informed decision about your best course of action going forward.
