Port St. Lucie Brain Injury Attorney
Pursuing Compensation for Injuries Caused by Negligence
Brain injuries affect all aspects of how a body functions, from the physical to the mental to the emotional. Because of the fundamentally important role the brain plays in functionality, even your mood and personality can be affected if you sustain a brain injury. Brain injuries can develop as a result of either open head wounds, where the skull is split, or closed head wounds where the skull remains intact but the brain is bruised or deprived of oxygen. Regardless of the underlying cause, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that brain injuries are a contributing factor in around one-third of all deaths caused by injury in the United States. Those who survive a brain injury may have a long recovery road ahead of them as they relearn to do basic life tasks. In some cases a brain injury is never going to get better, while in others the patient’s health may improve over time and the symptoms of the injury may lessen or disappear. Some of the common symptoms that a person may exhibit after a brain injury include:
- Loss of consciousness and/or difficulty waking up
- Change in mood or personality
- Short-term memory loss
- Blindness, deafness or ringing in the ears
- Cognitive impairments
- Depression or anxiety
The specifics of the symptoms are going to vary depending upon how bad the brain injury was and what part of the brain it affected. In any case, however, if someone was responsible for causing the brain injuries, you can take legal action with the help of a Port St. Lucie brain injury lawyer.
Determining Responsibility in a Brain Injury Case
Those responsible for causing a brain injury must pay for costs and losses, including pain and suffering. There are a number of ways in which an individual or company could cause and become responsible for a brain injury, including:
- Individuals who cause car accidents through negligent driving or breaking safety laws such as speed limit regulations
- Homeowners, government agencies, businesses or other property owners who fail to maintain their property, leading to a visitor falling and suffering a brain injury
- Nursing homes who fail to provide supervision to their residents, leading to a fall and resulting brain injury
In these and many other situations, a Port St. Lucie brain injury attorney can help injured victims or surviving family members make a claim for brain injury compensation against whoever caused the harm.
