Head and Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries are all too often the result of an accident, especially when involved in a serious car or motorcycle accident. Not only is it possible the intense forces from a vehicle collision produce major head trauma, but there is a higher likelihood the accident will lead to concussions, minor brain injuries and the long-term effects that accompany them.

It may not be obvious that a head trauma has occurred, yet they cause permanent, long-lasting effects such as memory loss, headaches, mood swings, irritability and loss in cognitive functions.  In most cases the victim will not even be aware something has happened, while at other times, they may vaguely be aware that something is just not right, with family and friends noticing something is wrong long before the victim does. If you have suffered an injury that involved a blow to the head, it’s wise to have family and friends watching closely for any changes in your emotional or mental state. Even if it is a situation where there was no direct blow to the head, it is wiser to err on the side of caution.

Suffering a direct blow to the head isn’t the only danger as injuries from acceleration or deceleration can cause brain injuries from the shock due to sudden changes in speed. Regardless of direct contact with the head, medical evidence has shown that your brain can still become bruised from an impact inside of your skull due to impact at high speeds. The expertise of neurologists and neurophysiologists is needed to determine the severity of these injuries.

Severe and traumatic brain injuries are capable of permanently disabling the sufferer, leaving them at the mercy of this injury for the rest of their life, in some cases severely impairing movement or cognitive ability. If you or someone you love has suffered such a traumatic brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for substantial damages, reflecting current and future financial losses, as well as emotional damages. At the Seitz Law Firm, these kinds of cases are a specialty, and as such, the firm takes a proactive role in the recovery of the maximum amount of damages possible.
