Serious accidents, injuries, and even illnesses that result from the negligence of others can sometimes result in traumatic brain damage. Subsequently, you or a loved one may be unable to work and require extensive care. If another person’s negligence results in brain damage, you have cause to request just compensation. An expert brain injury attorney from Nguyen & Chen has the expertise to successfully establish your right to receive compensation.
A Brain Injury Attorney Can Get You Justice
Traumatic brain injuries fall into two categories:
- Closed: This type of injury is the result of a blow to the head, often from a fall, motor vehicle accident, or sports injury, and contained within the brain.
- Penetrating: This is when foreign objects enter the brain and is often caused by gunshots or sharp objects piercing the skull.
The injury may be mild, moderate, or severe. While mild traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may result in a brief loss of consciousness, brain scans usually appear normal and there is no lasting damage. For either moderate or severe TBI, you or another injured person may have long-term physical and cognitive symptoms. More serious injuries are life-threatening and may be accompanied by spinal cord injuries.
As a result of these injuries, you may be unable to care for yourself, work, or interact with family members. To help you recover function, you may need:
- Physical therapy
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- 24/7 medical care
The costs for these services can be astronomical and financially devastating to you or your family.
