You Deserve Full And Fair Compensation After A Brain Injury – We Can Help
Our attorneys at Anesi Ozmon, LTD, are highly knowledgeable about the causes and effects of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) as well as the associated expenses. TBIs are an unfortunately common consequence of automobile accidents, slip-and-falls, assault, falls from height, workplace accidents and more.
If you’ve suffered a TBI or are caring for someone who has, you likely can’t afford the costs of treatment and related expenses without help. That’s where our firm comes in. Our attorneys have more than 200 years of combined legal experience, and they will advocate aggressively to hold the at-fault party responsible and help you secure maximum compensation.
Understanding The Effects Of Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries are typically classified as mild, moderate or severe. As severity increases, so does the seriousness of symptoms, short-term and long-term effects.
Mild brain injuries are associated with:
- Headaches, dizziness and lightheadedness
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Becoming nauseous or vomiting
- Increased sensitivity sound and light
- Changes in sleep habits (sleeping more or less)
- Memory and concentration issues
These symptoms and effects are unlikely to be permanent but can last a significant time.
Moderate and severe brain injuries are associated with:
- Loss of vision and hearing
- Loss of consciousness (which could last from minutes to hours)
- Persistent and severe headaches that do not go away
- Seizures and/or convulsions
- Difficulty with movement, coordination and balance
- Slurred speech and a general difficulty communicating with others
- Significant problems with memory, concentration and learning
- Long-term changes in mood and personality
- Mental health issues like depression, anxiety and aggression
- Increased impulsiveness
Many people who experience moderate or severe TBI report that these changes and symptoms can last for months or years. In some cases, certain symptoms may be permanent.
Concussions Are Serious But Can Be Difficult To Diagnose
The term “concussion” is often used to describe a mild traumatic brain injury. While they are typically not life-threatening, they can have long-lasting effects and need to be taken seriously. Additionally, concussions too often go undiagnosed and untreated because the symptoms can be subtle and difficult to notice. If you or your child has suffered a blow to the head, please make a safe choice and seek medical attention.
When you are ready to take legal action, you can let our attorneys negotiate with insurers and investigate liability while you focus on healing. They will carefully assess your expenses and losses and help you seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more.
