Do I have a brain injury?

No two brain injuries are identical. They have a certain similarity in some of the symptoms but some of the symptoms they can have, some of the symptoms they might not have, some symptoms resolve over time, and some don’t develop till later. But brain injuries can cause all kinds of problems. They cause physical problems, cognitive problems, behavioral, and emotional problems. All of these are significant symptoms and all of these are indicative of brain injury. Not everybody will have all of them and some of them may get better over time and some of them might get worse over time. They certainly affect children much more pronounced because children’s brains are still developing and they have not acquired the higher skills yet, so they may not have been required to use upper levels of thinking, which will be impacted by the brain injury. So if you or your loved one has been harmed by the negligence of another or medical malpractice, it is imperative that you seek counsel from an attorney who’s qualified to represent those who have sustained brain injuries to represent them and protect their rights.
