Trauma to the brain can seriously impact an individual’s life. Injured individuals may experience personality changes, reduced cognitive ability, limited motor functions, or speech impediments, among other symptoms. At Chaiken & Chaiken, P.C., our personal injury attorneys offer compassion, support, and guidance to injured individuals and their families. We work to find answers and pursue compensation to alleviate the financial burdens caused by the injury and necessary medical and rehabilitative care. Contact our Dallas law firm for experienced representation throughout Texas.
Brain damage is often the result of either blunt trauma or oxygen deprivation (cerebral hypoxia).
Trauma from impact: Severe impact in a car accident, from a falling hook on a crane, or other accident may cause skull fractures, subdural hematoma (brain bleed), or other brain injury. In addition, the forceful impact of an auto accident often causes the individual’s head to jerk forward and backward which is commonly known as whiplash. What many people do not realize is that this jerking motion may cause the brain to impact the front and back of the skull and damage cells (axonal brain shearing injury).
Trauma from hypoxia: Insufficient oxygen to the brain – often resulting from a near drowning, chemical exposure, or negligence during birth – can cause brain cells to die or sustain damage. Depending on the level of damage caused by oxygen deprivation, the individual may have serious cognitive problems, developmental effects, or other impairments.
Many people who suffer an injury in an accident undergo medical treatment and rehabilitate to the life they led prior to the accident. However, individuals who suffer a brain injury – mild or moderate – may face a lifetime of obstacles even with extensive medical treatment. The cost of medical treatment, the cost of lifetime care, and the loss of income can create a financial burden for the family. Our brain injury attorneys at Chaiken & Chaiken investigate your case and pursue full financial recovery to ensure your family has the financial support to obtain proper medical care and life care.
While a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may be apparent immediately following the accident, symptoms of a mild or closed head injury may surface over time. Therefore, whether involved in a car accident, slip and fall, or fall from a wheelchair, it is important to seek medical attention right away.
