With 40 years of experience in the investigation and proof of complex injury claims, the law firm of Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., understands that an accident victim’s damages might take some time to identify and evaluate. This is especially true in cases involving head and brain injuries. What might appear to be a minor head injury can develop into serious brain damage, especially if not diagnosed and treated early.
If you suffered a blow to the head or were shaken violently in a car accident, a truck accident, a motorcycle accident, or a fall, don’t assume that an emergency room physician will have made a thorough examination or diagnosis of a head or brain injury, especially if your main treatment was for a broken arm or leg. Contact an experienced Kentucky brain injury lawyer at any of our four Kentucky offices to learn about your right to collect damages for a head injury or brain damage.
Our Kentucky brain injury attorneys work closely with accident victims, their families, and their treating physicians to make sure that head injuries are correctly identified and treated.
Symptoms of brain damage or a closed head injury can include headaches, memory loss, problems with concentration, seizures, decreased motor skills (ability to move), confusion, personality changes, fatigue, depression, irritability, cognitive problems, panic attacks and anxiety.
If your accident resulted in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), you’ll probably receive a proper diagnosis; but if your symptoms are limited to a bruise or mild concussion, there’s a good chance that developing and worsening brain damage will be failed to be diagnosed. We know how to guard against that possibility by having independent testing performed by a qualified forensic psychiatrist and neuropsychologist.
