Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys in Durham NC
Experience Makes a Difference in Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
The human brain is often injured during the trauma of a collision in ways that are not immediately apparent, but can dramatically alter a person’s life. Traumatic brain injury is often the result of what is known as a Closed Head Injury, in which there are no external signs of injury, yet the axonal nerves within the brain are stretched and torn, altering cognitive and emotional behavior. The signs and symptoms of such an injury are often noticed only by close family members that realize that their loved one is simply not the same. These differences can include difficulty finding the right word to use, a hesitancy in speaking, memory difficulties, increased emotional fluctuation, and mood swings. When such an injury is suspected, the person’s physician should be told of these observations so that the person may be assessed by an appropriate expert. These experts are typically either a neuropsychiatrist or neuropsychologist. Such medical experts are trained at testing for and identifying cognitive deficits caused by microscopic injury to vital brain tissue.
If you or a family member have suffered a head injury that has forever changed your life, you will need a team of lawyers that know what is required in a case that may determine whether a disabled person has the funds necessary to take care of their special needs, or becomes dependent upon social security or on other family members.
