Head injuries can range from relatively minor damage to the scalp and face such as cuts and bruises, to more serious consequences involving damage to the brain. Although an injured person or a doctor cannot always see or detect a head trauma, even an apparently minor head injury can be extremely complex. Depending on the extent of injury, impairments caused by a head injury can vary widely. Seemingly mild head injuries that do not require a hospital stay, or even those that go completely undetected by medical professionals, can result in life-changing ramifications. We understand the complexities of head and brain injuries, and we can help you get the medical attention you need and evaluate the signs when a superficially minor head injury is, in reality, much more serious that was originally thought.
Some common head-injury impairments include changes in:
- Memory Ability
- Ability to Concentrate
- Organizational and Reasoning Skills
- Learning and Cognitive Functions
Family and friends of a head injury victim often suffer greatly from the effects of the injury. Apparent progress can be followed by sudden setback, causing emotional ups and downs for everyone involved. Caring for an injured family member can be very demanding and result in monetary and emotional burdens.
