In a traffic accident, damage to the brain can happen in seconds.
The effects can last a lifetime. Despite safety laws and education, traffic accidents injure thousands of people every year. Indeed, vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury.
Potentially draining your life savings and inflicting horrible pain and suffering, it’s important to make sure the person responsible for the accident is held financially accountable.
At Joynes and Gaidies Law Group, our team of personal injury attorneys can help you receive the settlement you deserve.
Sadly, the majority of brain injury patients do not receive counseling on the long-term difficulties that may endure for the rest of their life.
Even mild to moderate brain injuries can be costly. As many as 30 percent of the people who suffer a mild traumatic brain injury can have permanent damage, according to the Brain Injury Hope Foundation.
At first, your symptoms may not seem problematic. You may lose consciousness briefly or be unable to remember something. You might feel confused, have headaches or vision problems. You could have trouble concentrating or become forgetful. In other cases, you can have language and spelling deficits.
Other long-term disabilities from the brain injury can develop over time.
It’s important for patients and their caregivers to think about the future.
Will lengthy hospitalizations or home care be needed? Will you need speech or physical therapy? Can you ever return to work or drive again?
