Symptoms of Brain Injuries
Depending on the severity of the injury, symptoms of brain injuries can vary widely and can include physical, psychological, and even sensory components. These can include any or all of the following in a mild brain injury:
- Losing consciousness
- Being dazed, confused, or disoriented
- Sleep issues – either more or less than usual
- Feeling dizzy or unbalanced
- Being sensitive to light or sound
- Experiencing mood swings or changes
- Having headaches or stomach upset
- Suffering memory or concentration issues
- Experiencing altered sensory issues where vision is not clear, things don't smell or taste right, or hearing ringing sounds.
In a moderate to severe brain injury situation, in addition to the above occurring to a greater degree or longer time period, victims may suffer from seizures, have their pupils dilate, experience a lack of feeling in extremities, and even develop extremely difficult or aggressive behaviors.
Why Pursue A Claim For A Brain Injury?
Because the symptoms do not always present themselves immediately, many victims who suffer a brain injury may think they are fine in the moments and hours after an accident or incident. The symptoms may not appear for days and even possibly weeks. Because of the nature of brain injuries, there are significant costs associated with their care and treatment. Pursuing a claim against a responsible party is a way to potentially recover some of the costs of therapy and other medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other intangible losses in life's enjoyment, as a result of the injuries.
The first step, of course, is to hire a personal injury attorney to represent you who will help you understand your legal rights and responsibilities.
Telling Your Story
Ideally, after you have suffered harm to such a vital organ as the brain, the at-fault party and his or her insurance would be more than willing to provide the financial aid you need. A catastrophic injury often results in overwhelming costs. Unfortunately, insurance providers are in the business of protecting their clients and their bottom line. That is why our attorneys are committed to telling your story and documenting the unique stresses, disabilities or losses you must endure as a result of your injury. We will create "Day in the Life" videos to ensure that you are awarded the fair and just compensation you deserve.
Types of Damages
Because no two cases are the same, there can be no guarantees regarding recovery. Generally, though, damages in a brain injury case fall into one of two types of categories: special (or economic) damages and general (non-economic) damages.
Special damages are designed to compensate a victim for their costs. These may include medical treatments or therapies, property damage, lost wages or a loss in the ability to earn wages, and in the most serious cases, funeral expenses for the family of a victim. General damages include intangible items like pain and suffering, loss in a relationship, reputational damage, and emotional distress.
Protecting Injured Victims’ Rights Throughout Texas
Do not put off legal action when it comes to such a devastating tragedy as a brain injury. It may not be possible for you or your loved one to make a full recovery, but taking appropriate steps to protect your rights can help you gain the money you need for past and future medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering or even funerary expenses.
