When you and your loved ones part ways for the day, you do so with the expectation that you will all be together again at the end of the day. Nobody expects an injury to change their life.
Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most devastating injuries that can happen to someone. They are the kind of injuries that often require a complete lifestyle adjustment, not just for the person injured, but for the whole family.
You may need a traumatic brain injury attorney in Miami if you believe someone else’s negligence caused your loved one’s injury. At the Dante Law Firm, we have knowledgeable and experienced attorneys ready to fight by your side.
Traumatic brain injuries range from mild to severe. For mild cases, you can expect headaches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, speech problems, difficulty sleeping (or sleeping too much), and dizziness. Vision can also be affected, as well as memory and cognition problems. Mental health issues can also occur, including depression and anxiety.
For severe cases, all of the above symptoms can occur, but on a larger scale. More severe brain trauma can lead to someone becoming violent and they may not even recognize others. Many traumatic brain injury victims go into a coma for a length of time.
Recovery depends on the severity of the injury and how quickly effective treatment was rendered. Sometimes there is a complete recovery, other times there are short and long-term disabilities.
Traumatic brain injuries are usually the result of a violent blow to the head or body. Objects penetrating the skull and hitting the brain can also cause brain injuries. There are countless ways they occur, but we want to cover some of the most common ways.
Workplace Accidents: If you fall at work or are struck by machinery, you could sustain a traumatic brain injury. If an employer does not follow proper safety protocols or provide proper equipment, they could be held liable for the injury.
Vehicle Accidents: Any time vehicles weighing thousands of pounds each collide, there is potential for major injuries to the passengers. If you are struck by an impaired driver and suffer a brain injury, they could be held liable.
Assaults: If you are assaulted and suffer a blow to the head, whether with an object or someone’s fist, a brain injury could result. Domestic violence often goes unreported, leading to potentially severe brain injuries going untreated.
Sports Injuries: Children are at risk of brain injuries when they play sports, especially if they are allowed to continue to play after they have already been injured. Suspected concussions should be treated quickly.
Don’t let someone else’s recklessness cause you and your family to suffer even more than you already are. You shouldn’t have to worry about how to pay your medical bills, afford long-term care, and keep food on the table.
