How a Lawyer Can Help
It is extremely important to protect your rights by hiring an attorney to handle the insurance claims process on your behalf after a brain injury. Brain injuries are often catastrophic, meaning they require greater settlement amounts to satisfy serious, expensive and life-changing losses. Proceeding with your insurance claim alone could lead to a mistake such as accepting the very first settlement offer. Hiring an attorney, however, gives you someone who is looking out for your best interests. A lawyer will not let you settle for less than your claim’s true and fair value.
Types of Brain Injuries
A brain injury can happen when something affects the brain from inside or outside of the skull. Internal injuries, such as loss of oxygen to the brain, cause acquired brain injuries, while external impacts cause traumatic brain injuries. Both can cause serious damage to the brain cells and nerves. A brain injury can happen when someone falls, gets into a car accident, gets into a fight, loses oxygen or suffers a blow to the head. Different types of accidents can cause different brain injuries.
Open head injury
Penetrating brain injury
Diffuse axonal injury
Anoxic brain injury
A brain injury can cause symptoms such as dizziness, loss of memory, confusion, loss of muscle control, balance problems, nausea, vomiting, mood changes, seizures and loss of consciousness. A patient may or may not recover from a brain injury. The prognosis for recovery depends on many factors and is difficult to project. Each patient and case is unique.
