Understanding head and brain injuries
The Galliher Law Firm has successfully represented victims of head and brain injuries for 39 years. Obvious head injuries may involve bleeding, swelling or bruising, a bone fracture, a scalp wound or loss of consciousness. But brain injuries are often not visible, and it can be complex to diagnose them and to get appropriate compensation. It is important to have a seasoned head and brain injury lawyer on your team.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from physical force and may be caused by an impact or even without an actual external impact — for example, by a sudden stop or start of a vehicle. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not appear for days or weeks following the accident or could go undetected.
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:
- Confusion or other cognitive problems
- A change in personality
- Severe vision problems
- Other emotional and behavioral problems
Devastating effects of spinal cord injury (SCI)
The damage from spinal cord injury (SCI) can result in severe chronic pain, paralysis and even death. The most common cause of an SCI is a motor vehicle accident. SCI can have a long-term impact on every aspect of your life, devastating both the victim and the family.
After a spinal cord injury, messages sent from the brain can no longer flow through the damaged areas in the spine. The functions of the body located above the point of injury continue to work, but the areas of the body located below the point of injury will be impaired.
Compensation may be awarded for the following conditions:
- Broken back
- Spinal fracture
- Herniated disc
- Spinal cord compression
- Fractured vertebrae
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Loss of sexual functioning
