If you, or someone you love has been the victim of a traumatic brain injury, your first step should be to seek advice and treatment from a qualified physician that you trust. Your next step should be to contact the experienced team at Caress Worland Law Group to gain an understanding of your rights under the law and the compensation you may be entitled to. As medical researchers and practicing physicians continue to learn more about traumatic brain injuries (TBI), we are all gaining a better perspective of just how dangerous and life-altering these injuries really are. Gone are the days of a concussion being dismissed as a "minor" injury. While concussions may be relatively mild in comparison to other forms of TBI, we now know that they have the potential for life long effects. These effects can include risk of further brain damage, permanently impaired brain function, impairment of other bodily functions, and in the worst and most severe cases, even death. A traumatic brain injury can affect your concentration, your ability to enjoy activities you love, your mood, and much more. As a result, it is important for anyone experiencing symptoms of a traumatic brain injury to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Along with spinal cord injuries, concussions and other forms of TBI are among the most severe injuries a person can suffer in a vehicle collision or other accident. With the potential for immediate long-term effects that can worsen rapidly without prompt medical treatment, any signs of a potential traumatic brain injury should be treated as a medical emergency. Brain injuries are often missed entirely or misdiagnosed because they are not immediately obvious. Outward symptoms may initially be missed, or medical images like CAT scans and MRIs may be misread by medical personnel. It is a medical professional’s responsibility to investigate and thoroughly assess all potential possibilities for injury, but unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Once a traumatic brain injury is diagnosed, individuals with TBI must carefully follow their doctors' advice, and they must ensure that they have the financial resources necessary to cover their expenses during their recovery. At Caress Worland Law Group, we’re here to help ensure that you can do exactly that. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious brain injury which you believe is the result of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for current and future medical bills, long-term disability, loss of wages, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. We can listen to your story and help you to assess your circumstances so that you can move forward toward recovery of the compensation that you deserve.
