Brain Injuries Causes & Consequences
Severe head injuries capable of causing a brain injury usually result from catastrophic accidents, such as a car, motorcycle, or bicycle accident. Slip-and-fall accidents are also a leading cause of head injuries among the elderly population. A brain injury can be medically classified as mild, moderate, or severe, depending on how much harm it has caused the victim.
Common symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Behavioral changes
- Blurred vision
- Impaired decision making
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss
- Vomiting or nausea
Traumatic brain injuries and their consequences require extensive medical treatment. Obtaining effective treatment is often difficult because many brain injury victims are unable to work after suffering their injury.
Brain Injury Treatments That Could Help
Severe brain injuries require complex care like emergency medical care and surgery to increase the chances of the patient making a full recovery. Additional care such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, and neuropsychological therapy could be required for months or even years in some cases. The cost of all these special treatments is steep, especially when considering that many insurance plans will not provide any coverage for them.
Seeking Full Damages for Our Clients
