Legal Representation After a Brain Injury
Not only does a traumatic brain injury victim experience physical challenges, but there are also other tremendous psychological challenges that come with the experience. It is because of this reason that victims of brain injury seek legal action and therefore need lawyers to help them with the legal representations at whatever the cost. Getting a lawyer who has enough experience in the field is not easy, but is important if you want to get successful results in this type of legal matter.
It is important to understand what traumatic brain injury is so that you can be in a position to know exactly what you are dealing with. This is a sudden physical damage to the brain also known as “The Silent Epidemic” since the injuries are not seen physically. This damage might be a result of a forceful hit, or something going through the skull into the brain. A good example is a gunshot. Motor vehicle accidents are, however, the main cause of traumatic brain injury. Child abuse, sports injury, and falls are however some of the rare causes.
Changes After Brain Trauma
The part of the brain that is injured will determine the physical, behavioral, or the mental changes of a person. The most common brain damage done is the focal damage and is confined to a small area. This is the particular point of the head that has hit the object. A person will experience scattered injuries of the brain after a “close head” brain injury. A diffuse damage is more serious because the brain suddenly moves back and forth against the skull after a hit. The temporal and frontal lobes that are responsible for language and speech are the most affected, therefore, speech and language becomes a problem. This is a condition you might live with for the rest of your life and you wouldn’t want your loss to go scot-free.
