Brain Injuries

The human brain is perhaps the most critical of all organs. It is highly sensitive, yet ironically, the most important. You’d not be able to walk or talk without a brain. Your heart would not be able to pump blood, and you would not be able to smile, laugh or cry because all sensory organs and receptors are connected to the brain. This means that a serious brain injury could inhibit your ability to do these among other things.

So, how do brain injuries happen? While it may be misunderstood, the brain is actually a very soft organ tissue enclosed by the skull which is like an outer casing that protects the brain and all the organs connected to it. Think of the skull as a “shell” of the brain. When accidents happen, and you get your head bashed so hard, the soft tissues enclosed by the skull may get injured, and the intensity of the bashing may determine how serious your injury will be.

Causes

Brain injuries are caused by the normal causatives of other injuries. The only difference is that here, the brain is the subject to injury. Therefore, the following are instances when your brain may get injured:

  • In road accidents
  • In slip and fall accidents
  • During surgery

Other miscellaneous causes include when someone hits your head with intent to cause harm, work accidents, falls during sports, and even other accidents like skating accidents.

  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Over-stretching damage to the nerve fibers in deeper tissues due to a whiplash injury (diffuse axonal injury)
  • Shock or pressure wave force. These are mostly seen in individuals who survive explosions
  • Displaced and penetrating fractures of the skull
  • Severe shaking, such as with Shaken Baby Syndrome

Note that Whatever happens determines how serious your brain injury will be.

What We Will Do

Brain injuries are not easy to deal with. You first need professional help with your health condition to ensure that you don’t sustain serious long-term injuries. We can help you get that kind of help, and in case the worst comes to the worst, be certain that you shall receive expert care and rehabilitation services. We’ve got you covered!

As we get you out of harm’s way, we shall try to find out what really caused the accident. If it was due to someone’s actions or omissions, then you’re definitely entitled to compensation. Compensations for brain injuries are usually extensive because either temporary or permanent incapacitation here is very possible and in worse cases, both could happen. Therefore, we don’t want to leave any stone unturned.

After establishing the cause of the accident, we shall build a case for your claim and also try to make consultations with healthcare professionals to determine the extent of your injuries. This will help us come up with an estimate of exactly how much you may need on compensation, and if the amount is acceptable to the insurance company, then your case will be settled. However, if they find it difficult to accept what we feel is fair and adequate compensation for your injuries, pain and both current and future losses, then we’ll have to proceed to a court trial.

With enough evidence to substantiate your claim and witnesses to make it solid, we shall ensure that we bring the victory home. You don’t deserve to go through pain twice, the first time in the accident and the second in the strain on expenses. We’re here to take the load off your chest, and we shall do everything in our power to ensure that we succeed and that you bag your well-deserved compensation.
