Brain injuries can affect victims for the rest of their lives. We recently discussed the symptoms of internal brain injuries. Be sure you keep those in mind if you are involved in any type of accident that caused you to hit your head or that rattled your head.
When it comes to brain injuries, there are many different types of injuries that can occur. One particularly gruesome brain injury is a penetrating brain injury. This means that something went into the skull or that a piece of the skull went into the brain.
A big concern with penetrating brain injuries is the risk of infection. This possibility comes from bacteria and germs on the item that penetrates the brain. In many cases, these injuries require surgery.
As you can imagine, all brain injuries can negatively impact the victim and the people who help to care for the victim. Even children can be impacted by a parent's brain injury. The financial impact and the changes the brain injury causes are two of the primary ways that a brain injury can impact everyone in the house.
At our law firm, we take all of these points into consideration when we take on a case involving a brain injury. These cases are often complex, so be sure that you don't wait too long to get your case started.
We must comply with Ohio time limits on filing claims for brain injuries. The longer you wait to get things started, the less time you will have to build up your claim against those responsible for the injury.
