Pennsylvania Brain Injury Lawyers
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the brain sustains a blow‚ a penetration‚ or when acceleration or deceleration‚ such as that experienced during a car crash‚ causes brain tissue to tear. If you’re the victim of a brain injury‚ contact a Pennsylvania brain injury attorney to discuss your legal options.
Brain injury can be relatively minor‚ or it can be severe‚ long-term‚ and completely life changing. Common causes of brain injury include car accidents‚ falls‚ recreation-related injuries‚ and violence. Near drowning and other situations that deprive the brain of oxygen‚ such as birth-related injuries‚ can also cause TBI. A Pennsylvania brain injury lawyer can help determine the cause of your brain injury.
Most brain injuries are costly‚ and many are financially or emotionally devastating. If you or someone in your family has recently been the victim of a TBI‚ and you believe someone else is at fault‚ the Pennsylvania brain injury attorneys at Console & Hollawell will put their 17 years of experience to work to recover damages associated with medical bills‚ pain and suffering‚ changes to lifestyle‚ loss of wages‚ and wrongful death.
Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury
Depending upon the area of the brain that is injured‚ TBI can affect cognitive ability‚ behavior and emotions‚ as well as the ability to feel or move. While doctors will use a chart called the Glasgow Coma Scale to determine the potential severity and long-term prognosis for brain injury‚ when all is said and done it’s impossible to determine what the effects of a brain injury will be‚ regardless of how serious it is. Some very minor brain injuries have resulted in long-term issues‚ while other very severe brain injuries have more or less resolved and allowed victims to live lives very similar to those before the accident. A Pennsylvania brain injury attorney can help you better understand how your brain injury may impact your life.
In children in particular‚ it’s very difficult to determine how brain injury will affect them in the future‚ largely because children’s brains are growing and developing at the time of injury.
