Do I Need a Head & Brain Injury Lawyer?
Many traumatic head and brain injuries are caused by some sort of accident, like a fall or car crash. Even if you think that you may have been the only one at fault for your accident, it’s a smart idea to investigate all the potential ways to help mitigate the high costs of treatment. Many accidents that lead to injury are actually preventable, caused by someone else’s negligence or mistake. This is where a lawyer becomes an invaluable asset to helping you receive the compensation you deserve. It can be difficult to prove on your own that someone else’s negligence caused your accident. However, a team of experienced lawyers will have ample knowledge of the laws surrounding personal injury, along with the resources to investigate your accident thoroughly and hold all negligent parties responsible.

Brain and Head Injury Symptoms and Risks
A brain injury occurs when there is any kind of traumatic force, like a bump or jolt, that disrupts the brain’s normal functions. The major causes of brain injuries are:
- Falls – 47% of brain injuries occur after a fall, and that number is higher for children and the elderly. Falls are also the leading cause of death for people over 65 who experience a traumatic brain injury.
- Being struck – 15% of brain injuries are caused by someone’s head being hit by or hit against a solid object.
- Vehicle crashes – 14% of brain injuries are the result of a motor vehicle accident.
These causes of brain injuries are often the fault of another party, such as a property manager who failed to clean up a tripping hazard, or a negligent motorist who texted while driving. A lawyer from the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. can investigate your injury to determine whether it was caused by someone else’s negligence.
Moreover, brain injuries often take time to heal, and some victims do not recover completely. Many people are familiar with concussions, which are mild traumatic brain injuries. Yet the symptoms of brain injuries can become severe and sometimes life-altering. These symptoms include:
- Difficulty thinking clearly
- Feeling slow or lethargic
- Trouble with concentration
- Difficulty with memory
- Impaired vision
- Nausea or vomiting
- Light or noise sensitivity
- Balance problems or vertigo
- Irritability or other mood changes
- Sleeping more or less than usual
- Slurred speech
- Seizures or convulsions
- Loss of consciousness
- Severe memory loss
After any type of trauma to the head, you should be especially sensitive to these symptoms. Be sure to go to the doctor and have your symptoms checked out and treated, keeping all medical records for our lawyers when we investigate. Even if you are not in acute pain after your brain injury, you still need to check with your doctor to be safe.
Recovering from a head or brain injury can be a long process that affects many areas of your life in ways that other physical injuries do not. Being unable to drive, for example, will likely negatively impact your ability to complete everyday tasks like taking care of your family or going to work. Time is required to ensure that you heal, and you should be able to take that time without having to worry about the costs of recovery.
