Traumatic Brain Injuries ‒ Complex And Life-Changing
Major accidents and medical malpractice can cause patients to suffer severe injuries ranging from broken bones to paraplegia or quadriplegia. When a loved one suffers from brain damage as a result of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), however, life is never the same. Not only is the injured person impacted, but friends and family are also affected. Fractures heal, but the brain is a powerful organ. Even mild brain damage caused by a closed head injury can cause serious side effects.
At Weinstein & Wisser, P.C., we provide experienced personal injury representation to people throughout Connecticut who have suffered a traumatic injury to the brain as a result of another’s negligence. Contact our law firm for a free initial consultation.
Signs Of A TBI
While many injuries have visible side effects or symptoms, persons suffering from brain damage may not have such evident side effects. In some instances, the symptoms may not surface for days or even weeks. While symptoms vary on the extent of brain damage, a sampling of side effects includes:
- Drastic changes in personality
- Mood swings, irritability
- Speech impediments, slurred speech
- Loss of motor functions
- Changes in sleep patterns, insomnia
- Short or long-term memory loss
A traumatic brain injury may involve internal bruising causing blood clots or hemorrhage, internal tearing or swelling causing numbness and paralysis, and may even cause the person to remain vegetative in a coma for days, weeks or months. In some cases, the brain damage suffered by traumatic brain injury victims is extensive enough to ultimately result in death.
A severe head injury affects one’s ability to work or handle day-to-day life. A person may require long-term physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, or even a lifetime of medical care. In addition, they may suffer severe physical and emotional pain. Whether the brain damage was caused by a medical error, such as anesthesia overdose or failure to diagnose and treat a stroke, or an automobile accident such as a car accident or motorcycle accident, it is important to hire an attorney with the experience and dedication to handle such a complex case.
