Migrane and Headache

There’s an illness affecting a billion people worldwide, invisible to the eye, chronically attacking without warning. No, this isn’t the future in a science-fiction film: it’s June 2022. And while the start of summer isn’t likely to be a month that people overlook, there’s one aspect of June that’s little known and could affect the health (and wealth) of you and your family.

For the past decade, June has been officially commemorated as Migraine & Headache Awareness Month (MHAM), designated to bring attention to the headache disorders and migraine diseases that plague people around the world.

The Painful Reality

  • 40 million Americans are living with migraine disease and headache disorders
  • Migraine disease is the 3rd most common illness in the world and the second most disabling
  • Those who experience chronic migraines have an average of 15 attacks per month

Pervasive to say the least, and sometimes preventable.

Did I Suffer Traumatic Brain Injury?

While some people develop these diseases over time, others have recurring symptoms after personal injuries that involve head trauma due to a blow to the head. This type of injury can occur in any setting:

  • Car accidents
  • Restaurants or bars
  • Work sites
  • Entertainment facilities
  • And many more…

The possible symptoms of TBI are even more numerous:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Persistent headache
  • Problems with speech
  • Dizziness or trouble balancing
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Sensory issues, and more…

Good Treatment, Great Attorneys

Since the injuries often necessitate technical procedures, treating damage to the brain can be extremely expensive and time-consuming. However, many people suffering headache-related symptoms sustained from an accident could be entitled to compensation (directly from an insurance provider or from other parties involved). In these cases, a specialized attorney can help secure the financial assistance that victims are due.

If you need legal assistance for a case involving traumatic brain damage or any other personal injury, the Kelleher Law team has secured millions in fair compensation for their personal injury clients in Naples, Ft. Myers, and Atlanta.
