There are a number of ways to get hurt and sustain momentarily,
controlled or even long-term permanent brain damage or even death.
More than half of all brain or head injuries are severe enough that
the victim requires medical attention. Recovering from a brain injury
is never an easy task, as it requires intensive medical attention
(bills!), therapy and in some instances lost wages and it even may
affect one’s ability to function. Head and brain injuries may affect
people for quite a long while after the initial trauma to the head and
even after the injury has healed. Most times, there are lingering
problems that may impact the victim’s ability to maintain their job
and earn money, to cope at home, to care for the kids, to do basic
motor functions and to live the happy life you or they were accustomed
Every year, millions of Americans sustain head and brain injuries.
They get concussions.
Something falls on them.
They get hit.
They lose consciousness.
They get deprived of oxygen.
They get deep wounds.
They lose motor functions and in some cases, they sustain long-term
The bottom line is that serious brain injuries usually alter the
victim’s life – as brain injuries deal with the bodies’ ability to
function and may affect our ability to think, touch, see, hear and
perform basic functions.
If you or a loved one has been wounded, you may be entitled.
Never mind the more immediate impact of a brain injury – the financial
impact. Some people who suffer brain injuries require short or
long-term care, whether it doctors, personal aides, physical
therapists, and the like. If you, or a loved person, have suffered a brain
or head injury and another person or party is responsible, it is
critical that you are aware of all of the resources available to you.
That begins with contacting a brain injury law firm to see if you have
legal action against the person or party responsible for the brain
or head injury.
