Filing a Catastrophic Brain or Spine Injury Claim

People are resilient and more often than not they can recover fully from injuries they suffer in accidents. However, injuries that affect a person’s neurological system are much more likely to cause permanent, deleterious effects.

Spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can result from severe impacts from car, truck, and motorcycle collisions, workplace accidents, and situations where a person falls from a height or has something fall on them. They can also occur in medical settings, when a patient is denied oxygen or an incision severs nerve tissue.

At DiBella Law Offices, P.C., we have experience recovering compensation for clients who have sustained paralysis injuries and other consequences due to the negligence of others. Contact our Burlington accident lawyers today for more information.

Regardless of the cause of such injuries, the damage can be profound, including: paralysis, confusion, clumsiness, chronic incontinence, and loss of cognitive function. Although many people who sustain TBIs are greatly affected or even incapacitated by their injuries, some who sustain them are unaware of their conditions.

In the days and weeks following an impact or collision, a person with a traumatic brain injury may feel irritable, confused, and agitated. The person may consider himself or herself temporarily "foggy headed," but will fail to conclude the accident was the cause of serious neurological damage.

Often, loved ones recognize the negative behavioral, social, and cognitive effects of TBI before the accident victim does. A neurologist can discern the often subtle signs of brain injury during an office visit. It is important that you visit a doctor even if you do not believe your injuries to be severe, as all medical records are important in your case.
