Head Injury: Life-Changing With Minimal Outward Signs
Few injuries impact your life in the way a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can. The brain is integral to core body functions, yet fragile and easily injured by blunt force or sudden jostling movements. TBIs account for nearly 30 percent of injury-related deaths and are frequently the result of a car accident or fall. A concussion or TBI can affect your motor functions, cognitive skills and emotions.
Outwardly a TBI victim may appear uninjured and normal, but mounting medical expenses and diminished quality of life indicate otherwise. At Holland Injury Law, LLC, we understand the difficulty of life after a TBI. Our firm pursues full compensation for traumatic brain injury victims in St. Louis and the surrounding area. Our attorneys have brought attorney trials to verdict and have recovered settlements of more than $1 million or more. We are prepared to give your case the same tenacious effort.
A parent and their three children were struck by an 18-wheel commercial truck while on their way to a family reunion. The accident resulted in a brain injury that greatly affected one of the children. We fought for the family and won a $3,250,000 settlement.
Effects Of A Traumatic Brain Injury
A person with a TBI may not have externally visible signs over time because the damage is internal. However, TBI victims often exhibit one or more of the following symptoms that can worsen as pressure within the skull increases.
- Difficulty speaking or moving
- Memory loss
- Recurring headaches
- Numbness in fingers or toes
- Inability to wake up from sleep
- Personality changes and unusual behavior such as irritability or combativeness
- Convulsions or seizures
Brain injuries can rob you of your independence and make work impossible. Your injuries may require extensive medical treatment and ongoing rehabilitation. You may need to pay someone to care for you, drive you places or modify your home, all while not being able to earn a living. Just compensation after a TBI or other life-altering injury is essential to maintaining your financial security.
