Brain injuries have a life changing impact on the lives of the victims and their families. Our team at Graves and Richard Professional Corporation, Personal Injury Lawyers are knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with closed and open head injuries. We understand the severity of these injuries and the challenges the victims face in living with them.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can result from any type of car accident, motorcycle accident or commercial truck accident. The impact of a brain injury can be extensive. The medical definition for the injury includes anything from concussion to hemorrhage to cranial nerve injury. Regardless of the diagnosis, we can draw on our network of professionals to assess the short and long term repercussions of the injury on the victim and their family.
Many people who suffer from a TBI will require ongoing medical treatments, modifications to their lifestyle, and long term rehabilitation care. As such, a thorough investigation into the full extent of any TBI is required. Our vast network of medical specialists is an extremely valuable resource during this investigation. We can coordinate assessments and reports to ensure your settlement will provide for your ongoing requirements into the future.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (MTBI)
Despite the use of imaging technology like CT scans and MRIs, MTBIs are difficult to diagnose. Due to the lack of precise diagnosis, seeking appropriate compensation can prove to be challenging. Some of the symptoms victims typically suffer from are:
- Coordination issues
- Emotional and behavioural issues (mood swings, irritability, frustration, etc.)
- Fatigue and sleep disturbance
- Speech difficulties (slurring, etc.)
When working with claims involving MTBIs, it is imperative to coordinate with medical professionals specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of MTBIs. With our extensive experience exclusively practising personal injury law, we have developed an expansive network of these specialists and we can connect you with a medical professional who can help you with your recovery. With diagnosis in hand, we will be able to seek the benefits you need for medical treatments, rehabilitation and financial assistance.
