Every year thousands of people suffer brain injuries that result in catastrophic personal injuries or death. The term brain injury applies to an open or closed head injury resulting in impairment in one or more areas, such as cognition, language, memory, attention, reasoning, abstract thinking, judgment, problem-solving, sensory, perceptual and motor abilities, psychosocial behavior, physical functions, information processing and speech. A person who suffers a head or brain injury may experience reduced or lost consciousness, headaches, confusion, amnesia, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, double vision and ringing in the ears. A victim may also have problems with concentration and short-term memory. In mild concussions, these symptoms may be temporary and last only a few hours. In cases of major head trauma, these symptoms may continue for some time or may even be permanent. The symptoms of a serious head injury or brain injury may not become apparent until some time has passed from the initial impact.
Whether caused by a medical malpractice, a work-related accident, motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident, or vehicle rollover, one of the most catastrophic injuries that someone may suffer is a serious brain or head injury.
