What is a Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury affects normal brain functions. Such injuries are caused by a blow, bump, jolt, or hit to the head. They happen through falls, vehicle accidents, assaults, being struck by an object, and more. Traumatic brain injuries are more common than you think! One-quarter of a million children go through treatment each year or become hospitalized due to an event that has left them with a brain injury. In total, 2.5 million people annually go through treatment or are suffering injury to the brain causing them to be hospitalized. Brain injuries are a contributing factor of death in over approximately 45,000 of these yearly cases.

Seeking Compensation for a Brain Injury in Manchester NH
Seeking compensation is another battle that can be stressful. After determining what caused the brain injury, determining the right compensation can be difficult. This is difficult because treatment can be hard to determine. Let’s say through treatment the individual experiencing the brain injury visually looks like they have normal function (walking, eating, speaking, etc…). There could still be an injury that is not visually apparent, such as decision making.
For Example: Decision making can affect the remainder of a person’s life. It is hard to determine loss of earnings, care, or pain and suffering that this person may go through. Research from multiple expert witnesses and additional parties is needed in order to determine fair compensation.
Effects of a Brain Injury
Brain injuries can range from mild to severe. In a mild case, the injured party may experience loss of consciousness, while in severe cases, memory can be impaired. However, just because an injury has been labeled as “mild” does not mean the individual’s life hasn’t been affected.
Serious and sometimes fatal brain injuries can happen without the individual having been “knocked out” or lost consciousness. Brain injuries are widely misunderstood. You want to be sure you have the right team and legal counsel by your side who understands how a brain injury can impact a life. If you are seeking compensation for your own injury or a loved one’s injury, it is important that you contact our brain injury lawyers today.
From insurance companies to the defendant, the opposing party often does their research and is determined to find any reason to claim that the brain injury isn’t as serious as has been claimed or that the defendant is not responsible. Their research will be thorough; therefore, you will want to ensure that your legal counsel is just as equipped to make your argument. Contact our brain injury experts today to start seeking the compensation you deserve.
