There’s more to brain injuries than it appears. Even something seemingly mild can have long-term consequences.
Recent medical developments in sports have busted the myth that some brain injuries are “minor”. Brain injuries have been shown to have connections with memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and even with dementia.
Because brain injuries are sometimes invisible, they often go undiagnosed in the emergency room after an accident. Medical professionals can think that brain injury symptoms are caused by something else, which means that people can often live with a brain injury for years without realizing it’s the cause of all those symptoms.
If you think you may have a brain injury, it’s a good idea to get a second opinion or check with your family doctor as soon as possible.
If your injury happened because of an accident – whether it was a car accident, an ATV or snowmobile accident, or a slip & fall – you may be able to make an insurance claim. Medical care and other expenses can add up quickly so it’s important to get the compensation you need as part of your insurance claim.
Brain injury cases can vary a lot from one to the next, so it’s best to get specific details about your particular situation. We offer a free consultation and can help answer your questions.
