People with more severe brain injuries may have difficulty living independently because of their inability to make good decisions. If the brain injury is severe, the person may be in a persistent vegetative state or a coma and require round-the-clock supervision and care. This is where a Greensboro Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer can truly make a difference.
What Kind of Medical Treatment is There For a Traumatic Brain Injury?While in some cases the health care team can identify an injury almost immediately with the help of a brain scan, frequently a TBI is overlooked by health care teams because of the severity and immediate need to treat other physical injuries. It may be weeks or months after an injury before a person or family members notice a change in the victim’s personality or cognitive skills.
A person with a TBI requires a team of medical providers including a neurologist, a neuropsychologist, speech therapist, occupational therapist, and rehabilitation specialist. Treatment will include a variety of techniques to help re-train and compensate for the skills and functions lost. It may take up to two years of treatment and rehabilitation before the injury has stabilized.
How Can an Attorney Help if Someone Has a Traumatic Brain Injury?If someone has permanent brain damage, the family will incur enormous costs. There will be ongoing financial concerns relating to the person’s education, health care, and rehabilitation needs. Many victims require care for the rest of their lives.
Even with advanced diagnostic scans, a head injury is hard to diagnose, and its effects can hang on for years. Because the symptoms of brain trauma can be subtle or severe, it is imperative to go to an emergency room immediately. While getting your case ready, your traumatic brain injury attorney will review all medical treatment records and work with experts to determine if your problem was diagnosed and treated properly. Failing to diagnose such a condition or forcing a patient to leave the hospital too soon can severely hinder a patient’s recovery. If a medical professional is responsible for your condition, we will hold them responsible.
Some of the short-term conditions linked to head trauma include bleeding within the brain and blood brain barrier, bruising and physical injury to any part of the brain. Health effects related to head trauma can vary by patient and are readily distinguishable from non-head trauma symptoms.Once it is determined how and when the injury occurred, an attorney can help identify potential sources of compensation to help cover the tremendous costs associated with this injury. Although there is no compensation that fixes this tragedy, any financial help can empower the family to cope with the loss of their healthy loved one.
