Injury to the brain is nothing to take lightly. I’ve helped people who sustained mild brain injuries who recovered quite nicely after some time. I’ve also represented people who were so seriously injured they literally became a different person overnight.
Brain injuries are very frightening for everyone involved. To see a loved one lose their very personhood, to become someone else is a very painful ordeal. Lives are ruined in the process.
Anytime you or a loved one sustains a head injury, it is very important to get good, thorough medical treatment.
If you or someone you love has sustained brain damage due to another person’s negligence or recklessness, you have the right to compensation to the maximum extent under the law.
Brain damage claims are highly complex, and require the attention of an attorney who understands both the medical aspects of the case and the legal ones. At Donahue Law Firm, we have been representing victims of brain injuries in New Hampshire for many years. We can help you.
We care about our clients, and it is our sincere hope that they make the best recovery possible, medically and legally.
Here is some helpful information on brain injuries. Please keep in mind that we are not physicians and are simply passing along some observations, not providing medical advice.
I always tell clients to leave the medicine to the physicians, and the law to the lawyers. In both instances, however, it is important to ask the right questions and trust your intelligence, instincts and common sense when dealing with any professional. If you don’t think your physician has your best interests at heart, find another one. The same with a lawyer.
Brain Damage & Side Effects
Brain damage refers to the destruction or degeneration of brain cells, but is a term used to describe any type of injury or trauma to the brain that results in physical or mental impairment.
Brain damage can occur as the result of a wide variety of circumstances, including auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, medical malpractice, birth injuries, illnesses, infections, and more.
People with brain damage typically suffer from side effects that make it difficult to live a normal life. Common side effects of brain damage include:
- Speech impairment
- Motor impairment
- Cognitive impairment
- Difficulty thinking, reasoning, explaining thoughts
- Difficult moving
- Difficulty controlling bodily functions
- Muscle control problems
- Memory loss
- Personality or behavioral changes
Treating brain damage is very financially draining, since it can take moths, years, even a lifetime to recover. It’s very difficult for people to come up with the money needed to treat their condition, especially since many people suffering from brain damage are unable to work or earn an income. Fortunately, victims of brain damage can seek compensation if their condition was caused by another person’s negligent, careless, or wanton actions.
