Traumatic Brain Injuries and Concussion

Bellevue Brain Injury Attorney

Brain Injury Lawyer in Bellevue for Brain Injury Victims

Brain injuries are life-altering, for they often have long term painful symptoms that some individuals never truly recover from. The medical costs for treatment associated with brain injuries can also be costly. Brain injuries can limit your ability to sleep, focus, regulate your emotions, do physical exercise, or simply participate in your daily activities. They can also lead to sleep disorders, reoccurring migraines, loss of cognitive function, or the inability to return to work. Head injuries should be taken extremely seriously and if left untreated they can lead to long term concussions or even death. It is important that you adequality treat for your head injury and the lawyers at McNeese and Trotsky are here to deal with the legalities so that you may focus on you recovery.

While modern medicine has made incredible advances in the past century, there is still little known about the human brain, including testing to determine the presence and extent of a closed head injury and concussion.  While imaging can show the presence of  bleeding and material swelling, it is possible to suffer a severe head injury and have no imaging show the injury. Additionally, head injuries can be hard to notice, as the symptoms, while significant, can be assumed to be caused by something else.  Common symptoms of closed head injuries include headache, memory issues, anxiety, depression, moodiness, and balance issues.  While physical injuries can alter your life, a negative and nervous outlook will make every moment challenging.  Often, it is people closest to an injured party that will notice symptoms related to a closed head injury.  While modern medicine is far from perfect in diagnosing and treating closed head injuries and concussions, there are good providers and treatments available.

Many brain injuries are often a result of a car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, or fall. The trauma that comes from these accidents can be significant. While there are several things that should be done quickly if you have been in an accident, such as gathering evidence or contacting your insurer, the most important thing is your health and wellbeing. If you are experiencing any physical or psychological symptoms following a car accident, it is strongly encouraged that you present to a medical provider for evaluation and any recommended treatment.
