Nashville Brain Injury Lawyer
Traumatic Brain Injuries
The brain is the source of so much of our personal identity: who we are, what we do, what our talents are, and how we relate to others. When the brain is damaged in a motor vehicle accident, for some victims, everything changes.
The impairments from a traumatic brain injury will depend on the severity of the injury and the part of the brain damaged. Injuries can range from concussions to intercranial hematomas or contusions to diffuse axonal injuries, which cause coma, persistent vegetative state, or death. Brain injuries can cause a lifetime of physical, cognitive, and psychological, impairment.
Physical Symptoms of Brain Damage may include
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of coordination
- Bladder problems
- Loss of bowel control
- Sleep disturbances
- Muscle spasms
Perhaps the most disturbing loss associated with brain injuries is the loss of cognitive function that commonly occurs. For example
- Memory loss
- Problems with focus and attention
- Language difficulties
- Executive function disorder
You may also notice sensory problems including
- Loss of some or all of your hearing
- Ringing in your ears
- Hypersensitivity to noises
- Alterations in sense of smell or taste, often resulting in appetite changes
A variety of mental health issues commonly accompany traumatic brain injuries. You may experience
- Mood swings
- Lack of inhibition
- Aggressive behavior toward others
When the accident that caused your injury was the result of another party’s negligence, it is important to consult an attorney with a track record of obtaining substantial settlements for catastrophic losses. Brain injuries often require long-term hospitalization and ongoing medical treatment along with physical, psychological, and occupational therapy. You or your injured family member may never be able to work, live independently, or care for your family. Having a lawyer fighting on your behalf will improve the chances that you will get enough money to guarantee your care and treatment and the needs of your family when you are unable to provide for them as before.
