A brain injury can be one of the most devastating experiences a person will ever endure. Not only is there the initial trauma to deal with, but a brain injury typically affects a person for the entirety of their life. It can also have dramatic effects on the person's family and close friends as they may need a lot of help, rehabilitation, and home care.

How Brain Injuries Can Affect the Injured
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is sometimes difficult to manifest symptoms as they can be delayed in showing up. This is why our attorneys recommend that you always visit a doctor after any type of head injury to ensure that you're neurologically all right.
A traumatic brain injury can cause the following symptoms:
- Memory loss
- Changes in your sleep pattern
- Changes in your senses (especially your sense of smell)
- Visual disturbances
- Loss of balance
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sensitivity to light and sound
In addition to these symptoms, your brain injury may require severe treatment, excessive testing, and expensive medications. Once your treatment has become complete, your journey will just be beginning as you may require physical therapy, occupational therapy, and may even need to re-learn how to walk, talk, and eat.
All of these treatments are excessively expensive and will require your family to be heavily involved in your therapy. In order to help you and your family properly care for your injured member, our attorneys will help you seek damages that will pay for your care and your future care.
