Kansas Head Injury Attorneys
If you have sustained a head injury in a car, slip and fall, or other type of accident, our personal injury attorneys are here to fight for your best interests.
The force of impact in a car accident can propel your head forwards, backwards, or sideways, leading to serious head injuries. Impact may be a factor, but sudden deceleration can cause stretching and tearing of brain tissue. Toxic exposures or sudden loss of blood cause brain injuries. These types of injuries are also all too common in slip and fall and workplace accidents. A head injury can range from a concussion to a catastrophic injury such as a severe traumatic brain injury. Even “mild” brain injuries can be subtly debilitating.
No matter what type of head injury you sustained at the fault of another, the experienced Kansas personal injury attorneys at Neustrom & Associates are prepared to mount a strong legal case to maximize your monetary recovery. Since 1979, we have fought for the injured and that is what we continue to do every single day.
Types of Head Injuries
No matter if you hurt your head in a motor vehicle accident or in a slip and fall, head injuries can greatly vary in severity. The two main types of head injuries are traumatic brain injuries and concussions. These both may go undetected at first and so it is important to be aware that symptoms of both can include:
- Personality changes
- Memory issues
- Loss of concentration
- Sleep problems
- Light sensitivity
- Blurred vision
A traumatic brain injury can sometimes be mild and involve headaches, neck pain, and loss of the ability to concentrate. They can also be moderate which could involve nausea, vomiting, and convulsions. And then there are those severe traumatic brain injuries which are classified as “catastrophic” and can leave the victim in a coma or a perpetual vegetative state.
Like other head injuries, a concussion can be difficult to detect, so be mindful of the above symptoms and be clear with your doctor of the issues you are experiencing. Sometimes people who sustain a concussion lose consciousness, but this is not always the case.
Any type of head injury may lead to the victim entering into a coma. The coma may have been a direct result of the injury or it may have been medically induced. Induced comas are supposed to give swollen tissue the time it needs to heal. Non-induced comas that occur can leave a person unconscious for any amount of time. It could be hours, days, or even years before someone wakes up from a coma. The emotional toll for family members and loved ones is severe to be sure.
