Many Accidents Can Result In Brain Injuries
Accidents can result in all manner of significant ailments. While certain injuries are clearly the result of an accident you were involved in, others might not be so easy to identify. Many physical limitations and damages, like those stemming from traumatic brain injuries, may not be evident for weeks or months. Pain and debilitating physical limitations can continuously increase over time, even long after the accident that caused them to occur. As veteran brain injury attorneys, some of the most common causes of brain damage that Paul Padda has seen include:
CAR CRASH OR TRUCK ACCIDENTS – While you can hit your head on the windshield or window in a motor vehicle accident, whiplash is also one of the most common causes of a brain injury from a car accident.
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE – Negligent medical professionals can permanently damage your brain through many different errors during treatment, and this often happens when the victim is being treated for a non-brain related ailment in the first place.
BIRTH INJURIES – Undiagnosed conditions or improper delivery practices can damage the brain of a newborn.
ACCIDENTS AT WORK – Workplaces can be dangerous, and people often damage their head in slip and fall accidents, due to falling objects, or when flooring is defective.
Signs Of Brain Injuries And Ailments That Can Occur Over Time If Untreated
Many people walk away from an accident without being aware that they have a serious brain injury. Most ailments from bad collisions or falls are obvious. Broken bones and serious cuts can be quickly addressed, but you very likely do not know the extent of a possible brain injury. It’s important to know that the symptoms of brain damage are often not present in the minutes and hours after an accident. These symptoms, which may take days or weeks to show up, can include:
- Sleeping a lot after a car accident
- Difficulty balancing
- Sensory impairment
It’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you think that you might have a brain injury. Your doctor will likely ask you numerous questions about your accident and how you feel, and then monitor you through some tests. However, brain injuries can be difficult even for doctors to detect, and you must continuously be on the lookout for symptoms of brain damage. Do not hesitate to go back to your doctor at a later date and further discuss your accident and the possibility of brain damage. The long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury can greatly affect your life, and they can include:
- Difficulty with speaking
- Memory loss
- Learning and attention issues
- Mood swings
At Paul Padda Law, we’re more than your lawyers. We’re the allies you want to help set things right.
Whiplash Is An Overlooked Significant Cause Of Brain Injuries
Whiplash is a neck injury that commonly results from car accidents where a person’s neck is strained due to a violent movement. Victims of whiplash often suffer from neck pain, but it can take days or even weeks to set in. However, it is very important to note that whiplash can cause a serious brain injury. This can happen either by a hernia in the brain that forms at the base of the skull or by the brain being damaged after slamming into the opposite side of the skull. Your insurance provider may try to dismiss this as a low-impact collision that has simply caused neck pain, and not as a case involving a car accident brain injury. At Paul Padda Law, we have worked with many medical experts as we have fought against insurance companies who do not want to pay what people are entitled to in brain injury cases involving whiplash. With our level of knowledge and network of traumatic brain injury medical professionals, we will make sure that your case is properly evaluated and no brain damage goes unnoticed.
