Traumatic Brain Injury Claims in Bradford County
A traumatic brain injury has life-altering consequences, both for victims and their loved ones. If you or someone you care about suffered a brain injury due to another person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct, you do not have to face these consequences on your own. You could be entitled to file a personal injury claim and recover compensation for your economic and non-economic damages, including your current and future medical expenses, current and future lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Since 2003, the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. has been providing compassionate, aggressive representation to injured victims throughout Bradford County and beyond. Our Starke brain injury lawyers have successfully helped numerous TBI victims and their families navigate the recovery process, and we are ready to help you, too.
Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Sometimes referred to as acquired brain injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are any brain injuries that occur after a person is born. Typically, TBIs result from serious accidents, acts of violence, or other catastrophic events.
Examples of common TBIs include:
- Contusions: A bruise that forms on the brain
- Concussions: An injury resulting from a sudden violent jolt or blow to the head
- Coup-Contrecoup: A double injury that occurs when a violent blow causes the brain to slam against the opposing inside of the skull
- Diffuse Axonal Injuries: The tearing or “shearing” of connections within the brain
- Penetrating Injuries: An open-head injury involving an outside object piercing the skull and touching or piercing the brain
- Skull Fractures: When the skull cracks or breaks, causing fragments to damage the brain
Although TBIs are categorized as mild, moderate, and severe, all brain injuries are very serious and require immediate medical attention. If you have reason to believe that you or someone else may have suffered a head or brain injury, call 911 or seek prompt medical care.
What Are the Signs of a Brain Injury?
Because closed-head injuries can be difficult to detect with a simple glance, it’s important to know the signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury.
These signs and symptoms may include:
- A persistent headache
- A headache that worsens
- Loss of consciousness (brief or prolonged)
- Memory problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Unexplained changes in behavior
- Mood swings
These are just some signs that indicate a person may have suffered a TBI. After a serious accident or blow to the head, make sure to see a medical professional who can provide a proper diagnosis and recommend the appropriate treatment.
