One of the more difficult injuries that an individual can suffer is a serious brain injury.

There are two types of traumatic brain injuries: mild and severe. Mild TBIs typically occur after accidents such as car crashes or falls, while more serious strains can be the result of assault or a bad accident like getting struck by lightning. Symptoms may show up immediately following an injury but in many cases they don’t appear until months later – sometimes even years later! The symptoms depend on how hard your head was hit during an incident because it could have been just a small jolt to cause significant damage which will lead to memory loss, confusion about time and location (or amnesia), temporary blindness, difficulty speaking clearly due to slurred speech (dysarthria) personality changes including anger problems & depression; and seizures.
Brain damage diagnosis and treatment is an extensive process that typically requires a neurologist’s or brain specialist’s expertise. Treatment will usually require intensive rehabilitation and follow-up appointments. This can be very costly and are often further exacerbated by not being able to work or conduct usual activities. With such high bills, it is imperative that you have an experienced brain injury lawyer pursue all of your available financial damages.
