Dayton Brain Injury Attorneys
Helping You Recover the Compensation You Deserve
A brain injury of any severity has the potential to completely disrupt the life of a victim. The brain is a delicate organ, and even a slight disruption can cause long-term or permanent damage to a person’s brain functionality. Although brain injuries can be caused by health issues and other factors that are out of anyone’s control, traumatic brain injuries often result from accidents that are caused by the negligence of others.
At The Attkisson Law Firm, we will work with you to demand justice if you or a loved one have sustained a brain injury caused by another person’s negligence. Our brain injury lawyers in Dayton are dedicated to helping victims receive the care they need.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury is damage to the brain that is caused by external harm. Often, the cause of a traumatic brain injury is physical force that occurs in an accident. The negligence of others is commonly to blame.
Conversely, a brain injury may be classified as non-traumatic or “acquired” brain injury. Non-traumatic brain injuries are caused by internal factors, such as a stroke, aneurysm, tumor, infection, or heart attack. Non-traumatic brain injuries may also be the result of another person’s negligence, for example, in cases of medical malpractice.
Causes of Brain Injuries
The causes of traumatic brain injuries can often be traced to accidents that result from negligence. When people fail to take safety precautions when driving, maintaining their property, or doing other activities, other people can sustain serious injuries as a result. A person’s disregard for the safety of others is how many brain injuries occur.
Some of the most common causes of brain injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
Brain Injury Effects and Treatment
A brain injury can significantly impact a person’s cognitive ability, memory, decision making, and other functions. A person who has sustained a brain injury may also suffer from symptoms such as headaches, sleep issues, mood changes, loss of consciousness, nausea and vomiting, vision problems, and other symptoms. The symptoms can be temporary, long-term, or even permanent.
To heal from or manage the symptoms of a brain injury, a person may require medications, surgery, the use of medical devices, therapy, and other forms of medical treatment. Home remedies may be necessary as well, and a person who has sustained a severe injury may need in-home care.
No matter what kind of care that a person with a brain injury may need, it is likely that the victim and their family will be responsible for substantial medical bills. Additional financial damages may include lost wages, and victims often suffer from significant non-economic damages as well. Our legal team will fight to ensure you are fairly compensated and can receive the care you need.
