Kansas City Head Injury Attorneys
Head injuries can be excruciatingly unpredictable. For example, after a traumatic head injury, you may feel fine but later suffer from emotional or behavioral problems caused by the injury.
In other cases, head injuries that result in concussions, swelling of the brain, and other injuries may or may not be immediately apparent. Whenever you have a head injury, you should highly consider medical attention; however, if your head injury was caused by the negligence of another person(s), you shouldn’t have to pay for those services alone.
At The Popham Law Firm, our Kansas City head injury attorneys have helped individuals receive compensation for decades, and we can help you too. Contact us for a free consultation regarding your case, and continue reading below to learn more.
Types, Causes, and Symptoms of Head Injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a concussion is defined as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) “caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.” The severity of TBI can range from mild (brief change in mental status or consciousness) to severe (an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after injury). Furthermore, TBIs can either be “open” (the skull was cracked open) or “closed” (the injuries are internal).
A TBI can result from countless situations, including auto accidents, slips and falls, and workplace accidents. In any accident where you’ve hit your head or suffered a major impact you should see a doctor. Some specific symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can include:
- Persistent headaches
- Memory loss
- Coordination issues
- Trouble sleeping
- Vision problems
- Changes in behavior and/or emotional capacity
Potential Damages in a Traumatic Head Injury Lawsuit
In severe TBIs, the victim may need extensive medical attention, rehabilitation, and more. As such, a personal injury lawsuit is the best means to ensure continual, good-quality medical help. By pursuing a head injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for current and future expenses, including:
- Medical costs, including ambulance, surgical, hospital bills, medication, etc.
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Loss of current income while injured
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
