Whether you are a participating in a sporting event, riding in an automobile, or doing routine chores around your home, head/brain injuries can occur at any time and are always a concern and should never be taken lightly no matter how slight the impact.
Of course, we are all very aware these days in pro-football and other sports activities about the increasing awareness of head and brain injuries during such activities. Even the slightest of impacts can result in a catastrophic brain injury causing severe damage and permanent injuries to your brain. When the brain is jarred to the extent that it strikes the inside of the skull, a concussion occurs. Similarly, in the course of an automobile accident, any impact of the head into any object can cause a concussion or an even greater injury.
If you are involved in any of these activities, and most of us are, you should always be wary of head injuries and their effects. If you have been injured, or even if you think you have been injured or sustained a brain/head injury, you should immediately seek treatment and then understand what rights you may have by consulting with a NJ personal injury attorney. If you feel that you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, either by way of automobile accident, fall down type accident, or other type of accident where you strike your head, you should seriously consider consulting with a New Jersey personal injury attorney who will be able to evaluate the circumstances of your injury and any possible compensation you may be entitled to.
While most head injuries are not severe and may not require medical attention, the lasting effects of a brain injury can affect your memory, your vision, your hearing, and in more severe cases, your mobility. If you experience any of these symptoms after a head injury, you should immediately seek proper medical attention. Once your injury is diagnosed, your medical care provider will instruct you on any type of therapy that may be available to assist you with your healing process for a full recovery.
In certain cases where the brain injury is more serious, there are vast resources that will offer a full array of rehabilitative services and therapies for you to assist you in a full recovery. In those cases where memory loss is a diagnosis, there are cognitive therapies which are available to assist you in the proper thinking and getting you back to where you were before the injury. At the NJ personal injury law firm of Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, our qualified and experienced attorneys serve clients with brain injuries. Our attorneys are aware of available therapies and can help you decide on what your options will be toward holding any responsible parties liable.
However, you should always keep in mind that no matter how slight the injury to your head, you should always seek medical attention first and if you have any questions regarding the responsibility of others who may have caused your injury, you should consult with one of the experienced attorneys at the NJ personal injury law firm of Helmer, Conley & Kasselman.
Don’t let your rights be jeopardized.
