5 Helpful Tips for a Brain Injury case
Head injuries from a trauma can result in a concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Head injuries routinely occur from motor vehicle accidents, slipping on a hard surface, falling from an elevated height, and medical errors. Brain injuries can cause loss of past memory, loss of short term memory, depression, personality changes, difficulty in making decisions, and a host of other problems. The brain at times is able to heal itself, but this is not always the case.
Certain doctors specialize in Traumatic Brain Injury and have different treatment options. There are also tests available to specifically test for brain damage including CT scans, MRI’s, EEG’s as well as cognitive testing involving answering questions. It is important to regularly follow up with your doctor and see a specialist to determine whether there is any permanent brain damage and receive treatment options.
Strict time limitations exist to commence a suit and an action may depend upon who is injured, who the potential defendant is, as well as the enactment of new laws and judicial decisions interpreting the law. Computing the time limitations is not a simple matter and a person should promptly consult an experienced personal injury attorney once he or she suspects wrongdoing.
