A Brain Injury Lawyer Serving Alabama Injury Victims
Fighting for TBI & head injury victims
An accident that was over in an instant can affect you for the rest of your life. That’s certainly true for accidents causing traumatic brain injuries (TBI), many of which never truly heal. As a result of your TBI, you may have extensive medical expenses. You may not be able to work. And your overall quality of life may have suffered. The brain injury lawyers at Dean Waite & Associates fight to make things right.
We understand the causes of traumatic brain injuries
There are two types of traumatic brain injuries: closed head injuries (including concussions), which are the result of blunt trauma to the brain, and open head injuries, which involve an object actually penetrating the skull. Brain injuries are often sustained in motor vehicle accidents, especially those involving large trucks, motorcycles or pedestrians. They also commonly result from slip and fall or trip and fall incidents. Sports (particularly contact sports such as football) and violent attacks can also cause brain injuries.
The human brain is a complex organ that regulates every function of the body, so brain injuries can have a broad range of symptoms. Some signs that you may have a brain injury include:
- Head or neck pain
- Ringing or buzzing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Changing sleep patterns (which may be either insomnia or oversleeping)
- Loss of energy
- Loss of libido (sex drive)
- Trouble remembering things or focusing
- Difficulty reading
- Loss of balance
- Depression, anxiety or other emotional symptoms
- Personality changes
It is common for a person who sustains a brain injury to lose consciousness immediately afterward, but that is by no means universal. In fact, many brain injuries have delayed-onset symptoms that may not be obvious for days, weeks or months after the injury.
