Chicago Brain Injury Attorneys Tell How To Handle a TBI
Chicago Brain Injury Attorneys Tell What To Look For and What To Do In Cae Of Brain Injury.
Chicago Brain injury Attorney Scott DeSalvo here.
I am going to reveal to you the important differences about brain injury cases that everyone needs to know if they suspect a brain injury.
Brain injuries are not like your typical injury case.
In some injury cases you are dealing with a broken bone. But a broken bone is very obvious on an x-ray.
Even when the bone heals, you can see it’s there.
In fact, diagnosing a broken bone is hard to miss.
Brain injury is almost the complete opposite of a broken bone.
A brain in jury can be very obvious like a subdural hematoma, which is bleeding in the brain that doctors can see on a CT scan.
Thousands of injuries occur every year and they are diagnosed late or the brain injury is never diagnosed at all.
You see, the brain is a very delicate organ.
Violent movement of the head can cause the brain to move back and forth inside the skull and to strike the inside of the skull. This is called a concussion.
Even if you don’t have a cracked skull or bleeding in the brain, you can have a concussion.
These sorts of traumatic brain injuries can kill you, they can change your behavior, they can change your personality and they can have a huge effect on your family.
Brain injuries can be temporary or permanent but they can destroy your life. Traumatic brain injuries can cause depression and anxiety and all sorts of social and emotional disorders.
There is no simple test that doctors can do that is similar to an x-ray for a broken bone for a more subtle brain injury because it is not easy to diagnose. Unfortunately, doctors sometimes don’t make the diagnosis.
Oftentimes its up to the injured person and his family to come forward and note the strange behavior or the atypical behavior.
Sign and Symptoms
Some of the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury which Chicago brain injury attorneys see are:
- change in personality
- change in mood
- change in food or hobby preference, or
- change in behavior
There may be treatment that will help the injury and documenting the injury and the problems that person is having is the only way that we’ll ever be able to make a claim for it in a claim or lawsuit.
Proving the brain injury claim requires the help of a lawyer who will take the time to get to know you and your family and really dig in and pull apart the medical records.
The attorney handling your case has to be familiar with these sorts of cases as well. Experienced Chicago Brain injury attorneys are a must. And in a serious and complex injury like this, speaking with an experienced attorney is the best thing you can do to protect yourself and your family.
Even if you don’t have a cracked skull or bleeding in the brain, you can have a concussion. Oftentimes its up to the injured person and his family to come forward and note the strange behavior or the atypical behavior.
