Traumatic Brain Injuries
At Tom Rowsey Attorneys at Law, we handle cases involving traumatic brain injuries. Brain injuries are unlike other injuries that show visible signs of injury right away. For example, if you are in an accident and break a bone, there is usually a sudden complete loss of mobility in that area and bleeding. In the case of a traumatic brain injury, your skull usually encapsulates the immediate signs and symptoms.
There are approximately 1.5 million Americans who suffer from traumatic brain injuries. You must look for other sign and symptoms to know if you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury. Some of the most common signs are fatigue, dizziness, trouble sleeping, loss of bowel movement, depression and memory loss.
There are common causes for traumatic brain injuries. The top three causes are: car accidents, firearms and falls. Falls are most common in adolescents and the elderly. Firearm accidents are typically fatal, with 9 out of 10 injuries resulting in death.
Because traumatic brain injuries are unique, they can alter the rest of your life. When breaking a bone, this usually results in harm and injury just to that one area that was injured. In the case of brain injuries, they will and can affect all other areas of your life such as personality, speech, and mental abilities. Brain injuries do not heal like other injuries.
