Accidents That Can Cause Head Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by an outside force, usually a violent blow, to the head. These injuries are often times very severe and can occur in a wide range of situations, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Sports accidents
- Construction accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
The Challenge Of Brain Injuries
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, the road ahead can be very unpredictable. Some brain injuries are obvious to recognize due to clear internal indicators such as loss of consciousness, lacerations, or even open fractures in the skull. However, it’s not always easy for others to know or understand when a brain injury has occurred in instances when the skull has sustained minimal or no internal trauma. A concussion is a perfect example of this type of “closed head” traumatic brain injury.
Concussion symptoms can cause life-altering mental and cognitive problems, which are devastating to the victim internally but are very difficult to explain or prove due to the lack of long-term external injury. That’s why it’s crucial to enlist the assistance of one of our experienced attorneys when you or a loved one has been involved in an accident and diagnosed with any type of traumatic brain injury, including a concussion. Our attorneys at DelVecchio & Miller, LLC, understand the severity of brain injuries, even those that cause only external symptoms. We can help you secure the maximum possible compensation to help pay your medical bills and other expenses for these serious injuries both now and into the future.
