Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms | Michigan Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

0 Comment

Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers frequently represent individuals who suffer brain injuries due to trauma suffered in motorcycle accidents and other accidents.

According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, motorcycle and other motor vehicle accidents account for 20% of all traumatic brain injuries.

A traumatic brain injury can cause a serious disability and the effects can be permanent. Recognize the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury:

  • Coma
  • Persistent headaches or neck pain
  • Difficulty remembering, paying attention, or making decisions
  • Slowness in thinking, speaking, acting, or reading
  • Getting lost or easily confused
  • Feeling tired or lacking energy
  • Mood changes
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Light-headedness, dizziness, or loss of balance
  • Nausea
  • Increased sensitivity to light, sound, or distractions
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of sense of smell or taste
  • Ringing in the ears

Traumatic brain injury can cause a wide range of functional changes affecting thinking, sensation, language, and emotions.  The Center for Disease Control estimates nearly 5.3 million Americans suffer from a traumatic brain injury.

The Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire understand that these types of injuries have a tremendous effect on an individual’s ability to lead his or her normal life.  Changes in personality affect marriages, families, and friendships.  Head injury patients are often unable to return to work and suffer a significant impairment of earnings and earning potential.  Further, head injury patients often need expensive long-term care services due to their condition.  Fortunately, Michigan No Fault benefits may be available when a person suffers a traumatic brain injury due to a motor vehicle accident.

The injuries resulting from traumatic brain injuries are often permanent, and cases involving brain injuries have substantial value for both jury verdicts and settlements. This is because of the tremendous costs and expenses related to caring for a brain injured child and the loss of a child’s earnings over his or her lifetime.

There are many excellent support groups for brain injury patients in their families throughout the United States that promote treatment, prevention, and education.  Most states have strong local chapters of the national associations, including a Michigan chapter.

Individuals who sustained brain injuries and their families should contact Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. immediately to determine their legal rights.  Our office will start working on your case immediately and begin gathering the evidence to prove and win your case.
