Brain Injury Cases
The brain the most complex organ in the human body. Unfortunately, it is also one of the easiest to damage. More than 1.4 million people suffer brain injuries each year in the United States, with more than 65,000 of them resulting in fatalities. A large percentage of brain injuries are sustained in vehicle accidents, but this is not the only cause of brain injury. Other cause include exposure to toxins, slip, trip & falls, explosions, medical malpractice, construction accidents, concussions, and any other situation where either trauma to the head or lack of oxygen to the brain occurs.
Brain injuries are not visible, and often only becomes apparent some time after the accident that caused it occurred. Depending on the nature of the accident, brain injury may cause the following symptoms:
- Inability to focus
- Cognitive & memory loss
- Slurred speech
- Decreased hand-eye coordination
- Loss of movement
