The effects of a brain injury

Brain injuries are often the result of head trauma from an auto accident, medical malpractice or another type of incident. Some brain injuries can be minor, resulting only in a temporary memory loss. Others, however, can cause permanent memory loss and impairments. A serious brain injury can result in cognitive and behavioral problems and permanently alter someone's ability to live a normal life.

These potentially serious consequences happen all too often. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) says that more than 1.7 million Americans suffer brain injuries each year. About 3.17 million people have long-term disabilities from TBI.

If you or a loved one has a brain injury from someone else's negligence that causes trouble understanding words, paying attention, thinking and reasoning, talking or walking, contact Elk & Elk today.

If you were injured by someone's negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries or disability

At Elk & Elk, we advocate for victims of serious brain injuries. These victims may have difficulty with things that other people take for granted, such as:

  • Talking
  • Walking and doing other physical activities
  • Seeing and/or hearing
  • Learning
  • Thinking and reasoning
  • Remembering things
  • Paying attention
  • Understanding words
  • Solving problems
  • Thinking abstractly
  • Behaving

Treating a brain injury can be extremely difficult, but it may be possible to make a full recovery over time. Proper treatment is critical,  however, because symptoms can recur over time. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to someone else's negligence or carelessness, consider legal action as soon as possible after the injury. That way, you will be able to give yourself or your loved one the best chance for a successful recovery. Elk & Elk can help you pursue a claim for the compensation you need and deserve.
