Many serious accidents can result in head and brain injuries
Any heavy blow to the head can result in a mild, moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), causing anywhere from temporary symptoms to life-long physical and mental impairments. A TBI is a medical emergency that can lead to serious injury or death if not treated immediately. Apart from being struck in the head or striking another object with the head, which can cause a concussion or skull fracture, a TBI can also result from a whiplash-type event, where the head is suddenly or violently shaken or jerked. These situations can cause bruising or bleeding in the brain which can cause permanent brain damage or death.
Biloxi personal injury attorney Corban Gunn helps TBI victims and their families recover the compensation they need after an automobile accident, workplace injury or other situation which causes a severe head injury. Some of the main types of cases that often lead to brain injuries include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Boating and Maritime Accidents
- Construction Accidents
Watch for these Signs and Symptoms of TBI
If you or a family member have been injured in an accident where you received a head injury, it is important in the hours and days following the accident to watch closely for signs of TBI. In a closed skull fracture or whiplash injury, the damage may not be externally visible, so it is critical to look for these signs and seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of the following or anything else out of the ordinary:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Loss of consciousness
- Confusion or disorientation
- Lack of concentration
- Loss of coordination
- Blurred vision or slurred speech
- Numbness or paralysis
- Personality or mood changes
- A change in sleep patterns
- Sensitivity to sound or light
- A ringing in the ears
Why you need an experienced injury attorney for TBI
There are many aspects to a brain injury case which make it critical that you retain knowledgeable and skilled representation from an experienced attorney. A brain injury may involve permanent, lifelong impairments, or the full extent of the injury may be difficult to determine. Persons living with brain injury may require a wide range of medical services, as well as occupational and physical therapy, vocational rehabilitation and emotional and cognitive support. An attorney experienced in serious brain injury cases will know how to prepare a case that includes compensation for the full range of damages available, so that the injury victim has access to the best quality of care.
Brain injury cases are also often difficult because the victim may not have a memory of the accident or may be unable to communicate what happened. At Corban Gunn, Attorney at Law, we engage in professional accident reconstruction where necessary and look at all the responsible parties to hold them accountable and maximize compensation for our clients.
