Honolulu Brain Injury Attorney
Brain injuries are some of the most difficult to diagnose after an accident. The injuries are often life altering, if not deadly. Many victims may never return to their previous quality of life. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are typically acute injuries that occur as the result of an impact-related accident.
If you or someone you know suffered a brain injury as a result of the conduct of another, consult an attorney as soon as possible. Facing increasing medical expenses, lost wages, and other accident consequences can make the recovery process more difficult.
Filing a civil lawsuit gives you the opportunity to obtain financial compensation from the party responsible for an accidental injury or death. Attorney Dennis W. Potts understands how devastating these injuries can be, and he has the experience you need to secure damages and start to rebuild your life.
Brain Injury Consequences
Almost any accident, from motor vehicle to sports-related, can yield a brain injury. Unlike other accident injuries, though, a brain injury can affect every aspect of a person’s life. It can change your personality, leave a certain part of your body paralyzed, cause chronic tingling or pain, and disrupt daily life. Every individual heals differently from brain injuries. Two people exhibiting similar damage may experience different symptoms as well as short-term and long-term consequences.
A person suffering from a brain injury may not even realize he or she is injured. In some cases, it may be some time before anyone realizes there is an injury at all. Even a minor brain injury can lead to long-term effects, so it is vital to seek legal counsel as soon as you have a TBI diagnosis.
Symptoms of Brain Injury
Since brain injuries can vary between victims, it is good to have an understanding of brain injury symptoms. Seek medical advice if you notice these symptoms after an accident. They may be indicative of a mild or more serious brain injury:
- Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or remembering information
- Blurred vision
- Dizziness, nausea, and/or vomiting
- Mood change
If these symptoms follow an accident or head injury, they may require medical attention. Contact medical services immediately if you notice severe signs such as repeated vomiting, slurred speech, a severe headache that will not go away, convulsions, or unconsciousness (someone cannot be woken up).
