Did You or a Loved One Suffer Brain Damage In a Boston Accident?
An injury to the brain holds the potential to change a person’s life - and everything about that person - forever. The devastation of a neurological injury often extends far beyond the victim, touching the lives of family, friends, and everyone who knows the victim. But sadly, these injuries can be difficult to diagnose, making it more complicated to determine who should be held financially responsible for them.

Common Causes of Neurological Injuries
A neurological injury is any damage to the central nervous system, including the blood vessels and tissue that surrounds it. A sudden blow to the head, and specifically, to the brain as it collides with the skull, is what causes a majority of the neurological injuries we see in Boston. This trauma can occur in many ways, including:
- A slip-and-fall accident
- A pedestrian being struck by a car
- A cyclist being struck by a car or falling from the bicycle
- A car crash
- A sports injury
- An on-the-job accident
- An assault, physical abuse, or shaking
Symptoms of a Neurological Injury
Even a minor collision can result in damage to the brain. Symptoms of a mild neurological injury can include:
- Confusion and difficulty thinking
- Blurred vision
- Nausea or vomiting
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Feeling of fatigue
- Memory issues
Any and all of these symptoms, after a blow to the head, should be taken seriously. The victim should seek medical attention immediately, as even a mild neurological injury can have a lifelong effect.
The symptoms of a severe neurological injury can include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Vision loss or impairment
- Hearing impairment
- Loss of sense of taste or smell
- Difficulty speaking, reading, or writing
- Inability to understand spoken words or direction
- Chronic pain
If your loved one is displaying these signs, he or she might not be capable of understanding the injury he or she has sustained. Someone must make sure the victim gets medical attention, even if the victim does not believe the injury to be serious.
