Help And Renewed Hope After A Traumatic Brain Injury
A head injury may change your life dramatically in an instant. Did you fall on ice, fall down steps, suffer a blow to your head in a car accident or suffer oxygen deprivation to your brain because of anesthesia malpractice? No matter what set of circumstances resulted in your traumatic brain injury (TBI), your recovery will likely be the most important focus of your daily life for weeks, months or years.
With an experienced personal injury attorney on your side after a TBI accident, you can give your full attention to physical therapy and adaptation to disabilities while your lawyer works on your claim for compensation. At Futrovsky, Forster & Scherr, Chtd., we dedicate ourselves to helping our clients reclaim a manageable way of life despite their debilitating brain injuries. Financial compensation achieved through legal action will be a large part of that puzzle for many people who suffer accidents that injure their heads.
The Trouble With Head Injuries
A TBI may be a catastrophic, life-changing injury. If your loved one is in a coma or in a state of impaired consciousness because of a blow to the head or oxygen deprivation, they may need surgery and/or face a long recovery. An appropriate personal injury claim should demand compensation for medical bills as well as the loss of enjoyment of life.
Unlike some other types of injuries, your TBI may be invisible to most people. Once a coma has ended and bumps, swelling or bruises are no longer apparent, your coworkers, family members and even health care providers may believe you are well again. But you may know better if you continue to struggle with:
- Poor balance
- Lack of concentration
- Mood swings
- Personality changes
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Unpleasant sensations in your ears or elsewhere in or on your head
- Disruptions to bodily functions
To get an accurate, in-depth understanding of your condition after the initial healing period has passed, our attorneys may recommend that you get extensive testing and therapy from a neuropsychologist. MRIs and other testing by highly knowledgeable medical experts. While we build a compelling legal case for you, we can help direct you to the right medical professionals who can help you find relief and direction for your life after the accident.
