More about brain injury claims

Brain injury can be life-altering. How the brain injury will affect a person very much depends on the area of the brain that has been damaged. Often, a brain injury victim is unaware of just how severely they have been affected. They can have a tendency to overestimate their abilities or underestimate the problems they face which are evident to family and friends.

While many people know that different types of brain injury can cause physical problems such as headaches, dizziness, impaired memory and problems with balance and walking, what's often unseen, except by those family members and friends, are the personality changes that come when the brain has been injured.

Some Injuries to the brain display different visible signs which indicate underlying damage to brain function. An injury to the parietal lobes for example often results in weakness in the limbs on the opposite side of the body. An injury to the left side of the brain or the brain stem tends to cause speech and language impairment.

However, traumatic brain injury can also cause numerous 'hidden impairments' that may not be immediately obvious and usually lead to changes in personality, thinking and memory. That's why it is important to use specialist brain injury lawyers who understand all the potential long term issues and challenges that can emerge.

Expertise and knowledge is required in this highly specialist area of personal injury law but equally important is a commitment to treat each person as a unique individual in unique family circumstances.
