Brain Injury Accident Claims
Maryland personal injury lawyers at Cohen & Cohen, P.C. know that even a minor brain injury can result in long-term, serious medical issues for an accident victim. Unlike other types of accident injuries, such as fractures, cuts, and bruises – a closed head injury can sometimes go undiagnosed for hours or days after an accident because symptoms of the injury do not always show up right away. Victims go through their daily life in the days following the accident, unaware they have a serious brain injury that could be a ticking time bomb inside of them.
At Cohen & Cohen, P.C., our Maryland personal injury lawyers understand how complex brain injury accident claims can be. We have been advocating for more than 35 years for accident victims in securing the best possible financial outcome based on the circumstances of their accident. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury caused by another person’s negligence, contact our firm to discuss what legal recourse you may have.
How Do I Know I Have a Brain Injury?
As mentioned above, it is not uncommon for symptoms of brain injuries to be delayed. The victim may think the accident only left a slight bruise on their forehead or there may be no bruise at all. This is why anytime a person has been a victim of an accident they should immediately seek medical attention and seek the guidance of reputable Maryland injury lawyers. This is true whether the accident was a vehicle accident, pedestrian accident, slip and fall accident, or any other type of incident that could have caused an injury.
Once you receive medical treatment, your doctor will likely explain what type of signs to watch for if he or she suspects that there may have been some kind of trauma to your head which could have resulted in an injury. Even a minor concussion or case of whiplash could be an indicator of something more serious. Some of the symptoms that could indicate a brain injury include:
- Abnormal speech
- Blurry vision
- Changes in personality
- Difficulty concentrating
- Loss of coordination
- Memory loss
- Nausea and vomiting
These symptoms may be indicative of serious problems and it may be in your best interest to discuss your or your loved ones rights with Maryland personal injury lawyers.
If you do start having any of these symptoms, contact your physician immediately. Brain injuries can leave permanent damage that can be life-altering for a victim and their family. Although in a lot of cases, the victim may have good results with medical treatment and therapy, there are still many victims who require ongoing care due to the brain injury.
