The more serious the impact the more likely a brain injury is
Almost any kind of mishap, even merely falling down, can result in a brain injury. However, the likelihood of suffering a brain injury increases with the force of the collision, as does the severity of the injury. Even while the skull is meant to shield the brain, harm can still result if a sudden force leaves the brain battered or damaged.
Common signs and symptoms of brain injuries
There are two medical classifications for brain injuries: mild and severe. As one might anticipate, each sort of brain injury has a unique set of symptoms that go along with it. A person who has suffered a slight injury might feel exhausted, have blurry vision, or experience headaches. Additionally, they might experience memory loss or perhaps experience a brief time of unconsciousness.
On the other hand, more serious symptoms including convulsions, nausea, vomiting, seizures, difficulty waking up after falling asleep, dilated pupils, and coma are brought on by a severe brain injury. With time or medical treatment, some of these symptoms can go away, but the effects of brain damage can remain for years.
You might be eligible for damages reimbursement
You may be entitled to financial compensation if you have experienced a brain injury and your quality of life has declined. This might cover your medical expenses, lost wages, reduced earning potential, and any house improvements you need to make in order to live there. Additionally, you could file a claim for punitive damages in cases of willful misconduct, future punitive damages, future medical and rehabilitation costs, and future damages.
You might be eligible to file a lawsuit on behalf of a person whose brain injury has rendered them incapable if you are their caregiver. Call Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 for a free legal consultation to learn more about this option and to determine whether it applies to you.
