Traumatic brain injury attorneys in Orlando help accident victims who received a concussion (mild traumatic brain injury) due to another’s careless, reckless, negligent or unreasonable act. It is estimated that nearly 1 1/2 million patients are treated and/or die from a traumatic brain injury every year in the United States. Some 75 to 90 percent of those seen in a hospital or emergency clinic are categorized in a difficult area of subtle but life-altering mental impairment. One of the real problems with traumatic brain injuries is that the extent of the damage is not always apparent and may not show up on MRIs or other diagnostic procedures. This makes it difficult for a doctor to diagnose the extent of the injury and understand what the long-term implications might be. Brain Injury Lawyer Serving Orlando An age old problem with concussions is that it is often difficult for the victim or their loved ones to know whether they have been hurt. Even though the blow or bump to the head may have disrupted the way the victim’s brain normally works, the changes are often subtle leaving the victim to simply live with whatever changes in brain activity resulted from the accident. This subtle but often permanent affect can be very frustrating for the victim living with the post-accident symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury. It can be equally as difficult and challenging for traumatic brain injury attorneys to explain the anatomic, medical and psychological changes at the core of a personal injury lawsuit. If you or a loved one have suffered a head injury due to someone else’s negligence or thoughtlessness, the ill effects that you are dealing with may be a direct result of a post-traumatic brain injury. Although a traumatic brain injury is sometimes referred to as a “mild concussion”, most doctors and neurologists will tell you that there is no such thing as a mild brain injury and that any injury to brain from a blow to the head is potentially a very serious health issue.
