Some Patients May Feel the Effects of a Head Injury for Long Periods of Time
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given the go-ahead to companies looking to introduce two new medical devices into the market that help assess the severity of concussions and other head injuries. According to Healio.com, the move comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released some alarming new statistics about the prevalence and effects of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
TBI-related emergency room visits rose 70 percent within a nine-year period, according to the CDC, and they were also the reason for 2.2 million emergency room visits in 2010 alone. Known to affect sleep, memory, emotions and mood, among other areas, most TBIs stem from assaults, car accidents, blunt traumas or slips and falls. While some symptoms tend to fade within a short period of time, some patients experience them for weeks, months or more.
How a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help
When negligence results in injury, an injured party suffers loss in various ways. The law allows an injured party to pursue damages to recover those losses. Common types of damages recoverable in a personal injury case include:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of ability to earn
- Scarring and disfigurement
The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
