Brain injuries lawyer
Most people are aware that sufferers of personal injuries from accidents that were not their fault may be entitled to compensation for all kinds of physical damage to body and limbs. However, if the accident also results in trauma to the brain, the circumstances of the case may be a good deal more complex and the effects more serious for the victim and their family. This is why it is essential to identify the best brain injuries lawyer to represent the claim for compensation.
Trauma to the brain
- from an acquired brain injury from medical treatment going wrong, a car accident or a criminal attack
- a stroke or haemorrhage resulting from medical negligence
- any injury which causes a cranial aneurism resulting in a stroke.
These are examples and there may be many other circumstances in which individuals suffer brain injury.
How a brain injury can affect lifestyle
It can take a long time to recover from a brain injury or even not fully recover and result in
- an inability to return to normal capability to work
- impaired physical and/or mental capacity
- a need for support and assistance with housework, personal care, transport and rehabilitation
- loss of quality of life
- additional medical support and equipment
All these things are life changing and expensive and can have a devastating effect on a family if the breadwinners are affected. It is crucial therefore to find a specialist brain injuries lawyer who has experience in dealing with this kind of case. Often, in the case of personal injury where the brain is damaged, due consideration must be given to future care needs in addition to what has already gone and been evidenced.
