Recognizing Brain Injuries

The symptoms of a brain injury may not always be obvious. Many people overlook these symptoms or attribute them to other causes, potentially delaying diagnosis for weeks or months. In many cases, there are treatment options that can minimize the effects of brain injuries, so it is essential to seek medical attention quickly if you believe you may have any type of brain injury, including the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury: If you have a loved one who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, do not wait to make sure that he or she has proper medical attention.
  • Birth injury: Lack of oxygen to the brain during birth can lead to lifelong disabilities such as cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy.
  • Stroke: Complications from medical procedures and the failure to diagnose a stroke could be instances of medical malpractice.
  • Loss of oxygen during surgery: It is the responsibility of medical professionals to take care of you during surgery, and that includes making sure your brain has proper oxygen.
  • Chemical exposure: If you have been exposed to dangerous chemicals or toxins at home or work, it is important to get proper medical attention.

We work with medical specialists, life care planners, economists and other experts to help determine the extent of your brain injury, its impact on your life and the economic value of your claim.
