Helping Head Injury Victims Who Have Sustained Brain Damage
The effects of a brain injury can be obvious. Speech difficulties, seizures and motor skill problems can all result from cerebral trauma. But other effects are more subtle and can emerge over time, such as mood swings and emotional problems, inattention, and impaired judgment and problem-solving skills. Adults and children who suffer from brain damage face a long and difficult road to recovery and rehabilitation.

Brain Injuries Are Not Always Immediately Apparent
Many times brain injuries are not apparent when they actually occur. The tragic death of actress Natasha Richardson is one such example. She died due to an epidural hematoma (bleeding between the skull and the brain's covering). Epidural hematomas are often caused by a skull fracture. The bleeding from the fracture causes a blood clot that puts pressure on the brain. That pressure can force the brain downward to press on the brain stem, which controls breathing and other vital functions, causing coma or death.
If you or a loved one has received any trauma to the head — no matter how slight — it is important that you are able to recognize how brain damage occurs and the common symptoms of brain injuries. If you suspect brain damage, seek medical treatment and follow up with an attorney to discuss your legal options.
