Have You Experienced Memory Problems or Personality Changes?
After an accident that causes multiple injuries, doctors may fail to recognize and therefore diagnose a traumatic brain injury, or may underestimate its seriousness. In many cases, family members begin to notice symptoms that the accident victim does not recognize, such as loss of memory, bouts of anger or confusion. Additional symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include headaches, blurred vision, inability to concentrate, slurred speech, fatigue or insomnia.
Like spinal injuries, severe burns and crush injuries, brain damage can be permanently disabling and financially devastating. Our attorneys, Michael S. Callahan and Casey M. Brown have the ability to call on a range of experts – accident reconstructionists, medical specialists, neuropsychologists, life care planners and others – to establish liability and show the full extent of the injury as well of its financial consequences.
