Brain InjuriesBrain injuries are devastating and leave clients and their families facing lifetime hurdles. Although some brain injuries can resolve over time, many are permanent and require lifetime medical care and lifestyle changes. No two brain injuries are the same and everyone is impacted differently. Altair attorneys have experience working on all levels of brain injury cases, including, mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury.
The brain is a complex organ and is easily suspectable to injury from a bump, blow, jolt or whipping motion. An individual can experience a brain injury with or without a direct impact to the head and with or without a loss of consciousness. A concussion is a form of a brain injury. It is important to immediately seek medical treatment if you suspect that you have sustained a brain injury. Some common symptoms following a brain injury include brain fog, disorientation, dizziness, fuzzy or lost memories either before or after the injury causing event, blurred vision or impaired speech, vertigo, unsteadiness or balance difficulties, headaches, lack of focus or inability to concentrate, mood swings and personality changes. It is also common for individuals to socially isolate and experience depression following a brain injury.
Individuals who sustain brain injuries often require intensive inpatient therapies and severe brain injuries may require fulltime hospitalization and nursing care. Medical needs and associated expenses can be daunting, and it is important to determine early what insurance and other financial assistance is available.
