Learn How Our Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help You
Ludwar Law Firm knows that there are many kinds of accidents that can cause brain injuries, including:
- Vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls
- Industrial accidents
- Sports accidents
Brain and head injuries can be some of the most debilitating and devastating injuries. Brain damage can change not just a person's abilities, but his or her personality as well. Some common effects of brain injury can be:
- Memory and concentration problems
- Symptoms of PTSD
- Loss of intellectual capacity
- Difficulty reading
- Difficulty speaking
- Difficulty controlling emotions like anger
- Inappropriate social behaviour
- Personality changes
- Loss of vision or hearing
If you have suffered a brain injury, you may not be able to read type or remember what you're doing long enough to get anything done at work. You may also be unable to control your emotions and deal with normal frustration that comes up in any workplace or at home. Catastrophic brain injuries can also result in injured clients needing extensive round-the-clock care for the rest of their lives. All of this can seriously affect your ability to work, take care of yourself, and take care of your family.
TBI and Brain Damage Compensation Lawyer
A catastrophic injury, in which the client cannot speak or take care of himself or herself at all, can be simple to determine. Mild and closed head injuries can be more subtle and require more work by experts to determine exactly what has happened, and how much it will affect your life.
There are a number of problems involved in figuring out the appropriate compensation for a traumatic brain injury. Often you need both neuropsychological assessments and someone to spend hours with your friends and family trying to figure out the changes you have suffered — the changes in personality, lack of ability to deal with anger or stress, and other subtle differences that may be hard to explain or quantify.
Because the brain is complex, it can also take a long time to determine just how much damage has been done and how much recovery will be possible. It can take a lot of work to determine how much your injury will affect the rest of your life.
