what are symptoms of a head injury?
Sometimes a head injury will manifest in ways you do not anticipate or relate back to the injury. If you have a brain injury, such as post-concussive syndrome, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Problems with short-term memory
- Headaches, dizziness or nausea
- Photophobia, blurred vision, double vision
- Difficulty sleeping, fatigue, poor concentration
- Sensitivity to noise, ringing in ears
- Irritability, restlessness, frustration
- Subtle personality changes that may only be noticed by friends or family
the importance of dealing with a head injury specialist
Head injuries are among the most dangerous and least understood forms of physical damage to the human body. There can be significant and long-lasting effects that can appear immediately or down the road.
Our firm works with the St. John’s Mercy Head Injury Resource Center, which specializes in providing comprehensive evaluations and rehabilitation services for individuals with brain injuries. Their intimate understanding of subtle and traumatic brain injuries gives our clients the best opportunity to get a clear, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment for these complex cases.
Notable Case: $1 Million for Aggravation of Arnold Chiari Malformation:
Prior to being injured in an accident, one of our clients had already undergone two surgeries for Chiari Syndrome, a condition where the brain herniates below the skull cavity into the neck area. Despite these substantial pre-existing injuries, our firm enlisted the help of specialists from the New York-area Chiari Institute to obtain an additional $1 million in compensation for the aggravation of the Chiari caused by our client’s fall.
