The Source of Severe Head Trauma
We have seen devastating brain injuries occur as a result of motor vehicle collisions, DUI crashes, slip and fall accidents, nursing home abuse, and other types of accidents and crashes. How a brain injury affects a victim depends on a variety of factors, including where the impact occurred on the head, how hard the force was, and the quality of emergency care received. While assessing a brain injury, physicians will perform a variety of X-rays and imaging tests, along with verbal functionality tests.
Effects of Brain Damage
One reason why brain injuries are so frightening is the wide range of effects they can have on the body and mind. Depending on the area of the brain impacted, victims may suffer from paralysis, loss of consciousness (coma), memory loss, sensory loss, loss of coordination, emotion/mood instability, and personality (behavioral) changes. Even more frightening is the way brain injuries can worsen and cause additional symptoms as time goes on.
If an insurance company offers your family a settlement, chances are the settlement will be insufficient. Their adjusters and “experts” have no way of knowing how much a brain injury will affect the victim’s life, both physically and financially. The lawyers at Luhrsen Goldberg have worked with brain injury victims, and we can help you decide on a comprehensive settlement amount in anticipation of what the future might hold.
