What Are the Symptoms of a Serious Brain Injury?

 Posted on August 26, 2021 in Catastrophic Injuries

TX injury lawyerThere are multiple types of catastrophic injuries that can have drastic effects on a person’s short-term and long-term health. Brain injuries can be especially harmful, but they are not always easy to recognize, since their symptoms can sometimes be delayed. When a person suffers a blow to the head in a situation such as a car accident or work accident, the full effects of their injury may not become known until days or weeks after they were initially injured. By understanding the symptoms a person may experience and the long-term ramifications of an injury, a victim and their loved ones can take legal action to pursue compensation from the person or parties who were responsible.

Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

This may result in bruising of the brain, torn brain tissue, or serious bleeding, which can put pressure on the brain and cause additional damage. A mild traumatic brain injury may result in symptoms such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, confusion, temporary memory loss, or loss of consciousness. These symptoms will usually last for a short period of time, typically around a few days to a week.

 Posted on May 28, 2021 in Uncategorized

When the light turns green, you remove your foot from the brake and drive into the intersection. Suddenly, a vehicle from your right races through the intersection because the driver is trying to beat the light that has already turned red. It may have been a near miss, but perhaps you weren’t so lucky.

Intersections are among the most common places for accidents to occur. In fact, the Federal Highway Administration reports that about half of all motor vehicle accidents happen at intersections, and almost all of them are the result of a driver making a terrible mistake. If you are recovering from injuries resulting from an intersection crash or you lost a loved one in such a tragedy, you likely want answers to your questions, particularly when it comes to knowing who is responsible.

What goes wrong?

Even in a quiet Dallas County neighborhood, chances are that there is a lot going on at any intersection. Not only might there be traffic coming from any direction, but a driver may also have to deal with children playing, pedestrians, people on bikes, directional signs, animals and other factors.
