After a closed head injury, an accident victim begins to look “normal” before long. The initial swelling, concussion or extreme headaches and dizziness may subside, leading doctors and other people to conclude that the patient is “all better now.” The brain injury patient may be able to return to normal life in many ways — walking, talking and seeming to engage in normal activities once again.
However, the patient, close family members and close work colleagues may notice differences that do not seem to go away over time, such as the following:
- Personality changes
- Mood swings
- Inability to concentrate
The recovering brain injury victim may be unable to hold down a job or take care of a family consistently as the person did before the accident, such as the following:
- A car accident
- A serious slip-and-fall accident
- An accident involving public transportation such as a bus or train
- A workplace accident
- A construction site accident
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), even if it was a so-called “minor” head injury, you are encouraged to talk to an attorney with experience handling catastrophic injury cases. Just because you are walking and talking, that does not mean that you do not have lingering side effects that mean your brain injury was life-altering.
Perhaps your doctor, therapist or family members are tired of listening to your complaints related to your head injury. But, you know that the damage is real, and you wonder how to cope with the financial reality of being unable to go back to your old job and perform your work duties as before.
At our Sacramento personal injury law firm, you can be assured that our attorneys will not disregard your concerns. A complete evaluation of your condition by a neuropsychologist may provide the information that our lawyers at Teal & Montgomery/a> need to build a strong case for full compensation for your brain injury.
