The Impact Of Brain Injuries
Brain damage is among the most tragic injuries a person can experience. Brain injuries typically result in comas, and even those who remain conscious can suffer serious physical, psychological and cognitive disabilities. If a brain injury is caused by someone else’s negligence, a lawsuit can recover the money that the family needs for treatment and lost wages.

You May Not Know You Have A Brain Injury
Not all brain injuries are immediately obvious. Sometimes accidents can cause a “closed head injury,” in which the skull was not fractured but the brain was damaged. Sometimes the brain will swell and bleed as a result, which will slowly cause increasing amounts of damage.
The brain is part of the central nervous system, along with the spinal cord, and controls all bodily functions. Thus, brain damage can cause damage to any part of normal functioning. Inability to move parts of the body is common, but so are cognitive defects, such as memory loss, and emotional problems, such as anxiety and depression.
After any sort of accident, you should always get medical help to check for possible brain damage. We will help to prove the extent of your injuries and win compensation that will cover your medical costs.
