Brain injuries occur when a blow to the head, loss of oxygen or other physical trauma impacts the brain.  The consequences of a brain injury can vary greatly from individual to individual. Often it takes weeks, months and sometimes years to truly assess the long-term damage.  Victims of brain injuries may not be capable of returning to work and often need assistance to relearn even the simplest of daily tasks.

Why You Need a Brain Injury Attorney

The experienced staff at Frank Jenkins Law Office has worked with many families adversely affected by serious brain injury. We can help you and your family. Call us today at  859-389-9344 or contact us.

Brain injuries happen with increasing frequency; experts estimate that a traumatic brain injury occurs nearly every 15 seconds.

Almost any kind of accident has the potential to cause a brain injury, but some of the leading causes include:

  • Car accidents
  • Falls
  • Shaking of infants
  • Sports injuries
  • Oxygen deprivation – either from an accident or during a medical procedure

The medical issues that result from a brain injury can be complex.  Mild injuries may create temporary mobility and motor skill problems, while more severe trauma can have long-term effects on key bodily functions.

Some of the common complications associated with brain injuries include:

  • Difficulty thinking or concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Memory problems
  • Persistent headache
  • Limited function in the arms or legs
  • Speech and language problems
  • Emotional problems

Brain injuries are further complicated by the fact that symptoms can differ greatly among victims.  Because two people can suffer similar brain injuries with very different effects, emergency room personnel don’t always recognize the signs of a brain injury – and victims may not receive the appropriate treatment or diagnosis.  An incorrect or missed diagnosis may have very serious consequences, missing a narrow window of opportunity in which treatment options are available.

The challenging nature of brain injuries often makes it difficult to establish the cause and effective course of treatment.  Recovering from a brain injury is already a struggle for victims and their families – and insurance companies do not make this process any easier.  Insurers don’t want to pay out huge settlements to cover a lifetime of medical bills, and they may attempt to deny or minimize benefits.
