Brain Damage Attorneys in Austin
Brain damage can be caused by a violent blow to the head. Those involved in motorcycle and car accidents may receive brain damage. This serious diagnosis can totally alter someone’s life. They may never be able to return to their old life and work at a regular job.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) causes an impairment of cognitive and/or physical abilities. Victims can remain in a coma for a period of time. Others may undergo changes in their mental and emotional abilities. The brain is very delicate and although it is protected by the skull, it can become damaged through severe accidents like falling from a rooftop.
Some of today’s best known professional sports can also cause brain damage. Boxing has been known for years to cause a condition called dementia pugilistica. This neurodegenerative disease is caused by repeated blows to the head. Former NFL players have come forward alleging that NFL doctors were aware that constant concussions received during game play would lead to brain degeneration.
Some brain injuries are permanent and some are temporary. Victims can recover at least partially over the course of time depending upon the type of injury. Regardless of the type of injury, victims can often experience memory loss, changes in behavior, confusion, dementia, and loss of motor skills.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that there are currently 5.3 million people suffering from serious traumatic brain injury in America. These are cases where victims will experience life-long symptoms and need specialized care.
If you or a loved one has sustained a serious brain injury and you believe the injury occurred because of someone else’s negligence, then you can take action.
