At Hall & Sethi, PLC, we understand individuals and family members dealing with these accidents are facing serious issues and probably anxious about what the future holds. Our Reston and Northern Virginia brain injury attorneys are here to do their part by easing your legal burden as much as possible.
When someone else’s negligence has resulted in your loved one’s catastrophic injury, they should be held responsible for the medical costs, pain and suffering, and potential loss of income. While a lawsuit will not undo the damage, it can help you obtain financial security for the future and remove one stressor from your life.
Different Types of Brain Injuries
Not all brain injuries are readily apparent. If you or a loved one suffered a blow to the head of any kind, make sure you seek medical attention right away. Even if the physician does not notice a problem in the brain, if one develops later it is important to have a record from the previous doctor visit.
Signs of a brain injury include:
- Vision problems: Sometimes vision gets impaired after a brain injury. It could only affect one eye and will be noticeably different from normal vision problems.
- Dizziness: A severe blow or jolt to the head can result in dizziness. If the feeling lasts for days, and the victim has trouble standing on their feet, it could mean they’ve suffered permanent damage.
- Loss of consciousness: Anyone who falls unconscious should be taken to a doctor immediately. Even if the loss only lasted for a few minutes, it could have resulted in serious injury.
- Difficulty speaking: Having trouble speaking is an almost definite sign of a brain injury. Speak with a medical professional immediately even if the victim is not experiencing any other problems.
