Brain Injuries

Alexandria Attorneys Fight for Victims with Brain Injuries

Committed advocates pursue full compensation for losses

Not all injuries are apparent immediately after the accident or incident that caused them. While broken bones and damage to internal organs are more visible and usually detected by X-rays or other imaging technology, subtle injuries to the brain are often difficult to discern and diagnose. Violent movement of the head, such as that caused by whiplash, can cause brain injuries and symptoms that do not appear for days or even weeks after the event.

Experienced accident lawyers understand the scope of harm

Head injuries can be as mild as bumps or contusions, but they can also be as dangerous as internal bleeding, fractured skull bones, or traumatic brain injuries. These traumas can disable a person for life, affect their memory and coordination, cause seizures and even death. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. Even if the trauma does not result in death, serious medical conditions can result from injury to the brain, such as:

  • Memory loss (amnesia) and confusion
  • Impaired cognitive skills and performance
  • Vision or hearing loss or impairment
  • Dizziness or balance problems
  • Coma
  • Paralysis
  • Reading or learning disabilities
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

After an auto accident or other injury events, you should always seek medical attention, especially if your head was hurt. Common head injuries are concussions, skull fractures, and intracranial hematomas. Victims of head injuries may suffer from impairments of their muscles, speech, vision, taste, or hearing depending on the area of their brain or head that is injured and the extent of those injuries.

It is also common for victims to experience long- or short-term changes in their memory, behavior, and personality. During a difficult time when you need to focus on your recovery, seek out experienced personal injury attorneys who know how to fight for your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
