A traumatic accident where you are severely injured can be one of the worst things that will happen to you in your life. This is particularly true where the injury is to the brain, causing you problems such as loss of consciousness, concussion, and other symptoms that mean that you struggle to live a normal life.

Whatever type of legal aid you need, our experts are here to give you proper assistance.
Being Affected By Brain Trauma
In the immediate aftermath of your injury, you may not realize that you have been severely injured. Experts suggest that as much as 90 percent of all types of brain injury, concussions, do not have a loss of consciousness at the very beginning. You may start to regularly lose consciousness for some time after the injury, but in the immediate aftermath, you will be awake. It is very common to not know that you are severely hurt. For example, only a decade ago a famous actress, Natasha Richardson, died after suffering a fall. She did not realize that she had sustained head injuries for more than an hour after the incident, and the fall seemed innocuous. However, within a few days she had died of injury. In the US, it is estimated that someone dies from such an injury every five minutes, and many more are left with severe impairment.
The After-Effects Of Brain Trauma
Unlike other forms of injury, such as a broken leg or a burn, the worst effects of the brain injury will not occur immediately after the incident. Symptoms may begin within a few hours of the damage, and may include headaches, impaired vision and nausea. Gradually, confusion, irritation and tinnitus may cause a person to head to the hospital, but by that time swelling and bleeding has already occurred. This is why whenever you suffer a head injury, even if you are at work, you need to head to the hospital. It is also why you may be able to claim compensation if you suffer a brain injury in your workplace.
