Common Causes of Brain Injuries
Here are some of the most common sources:
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- Falling objects
- Falls from heights
- Construction site accidents
These incidents can typically be linked back to someone else's negligence. It could be a careless driver who caused a crash, an unsafe and slippery retail store floor, or a vehicle manufacturer who put an unsafe vehicle on the road. Rely on the lawyers at The Kelleher Firm to investigate the root cause of your brain injury and to hold the responsible party accountable.
Brain Injury Symptoms
Sometimes this type of trauma is not immediately apparent. You may develop symptoms days or weeks after the initial injury. The possibility of delayed symptoms is one reason it is so important to visit a doctor as soon as you can. They can assess the level of trauma that occurred.
The following are some of the most common brain injury symptoms:
- Loss of consciousness
- Sleeping more than normal
- Loss of coordination
- Blurred vision
- Memory problems
- Impaired concentration
- Mood changes
- Personality changes
These symptoms may vary depending on the severity of the brain injury. Anytime you receive a blow or jolt to the head, you should visit your doctor for a complete exam.
Brain Injury Compensation
Brain injuries often have a life-altering effect. The damage done can affect your future, as well as your present daily life. In a brain injury claim, we pursue compensation for all of the ways the trauma has affected your life, financially and in other ways:
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Costs of physical rehabilitation
- Costs of assistive technology
- Costs of in-home care
As part of your initial consultation, we want to get to know you and learn about the ways your life has been affected. After becoming familiar with how it has impacted you, we are better equipped to fight aggressively, with full knowledge of the ramifications the injury had.
Fault in a Brain Injury Claim
There are a vast number of parties who can be potentially responsible in a brain injury case. Common examples include:
- Other drivers
- Product manufacturers
- Product designers
- Roadway designers
- Business owners
- Property owners
- Property leasers
Don't worry if these parties do not apply in your circumstances. There are many individuals and entities which may be liable in an injury case. Our attorneys can determine if someone can be held responsible for causing your brain injury.
