A brain injury is not always apparent after an accident. In some cases, it may take some time before a person is diagnosed with a brain injury. If you have suffered from a brain injury, you may be facing costly medical bills and a long road to recovery. If your brain injury is the result of another person’s negligence, they may be held liable for the losses you suffer as a result of your injury. To find out how the law protects you, you should speak to a Brookhaven brain injury attorney as soon as possible. The legal team at Gold & Gold can help you.

If you have suffered head trauma from a fall, a blow to the head, or a car accident, you should see a medical doctor as a matter of urgency. Even when you have no visible injury to your head, there may be suffering from a serious, life-threatening brain injury. Some of the symptoms of a brain injury include:
You should seek immediate medical attention if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
Even though the brain is the powerhouse of the human body, it is the most fragile organ in the human body. The skull protects the brain, but in traumatic situations, the brain can suffer injury from motion that causes it to hit the skull like whiplash, or penetrative injury like a gunshot. Common causes of brain injury include:
A brain injury can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the damage caused to the brain.
Like any other personal injury case, you will have to determine the cause of your brain injury to identify the legally responsible party. The specific facts of your case will determine who owed you a duty of care in the situation that resulted in your brain injury and if they failed in their duty of care to you. For example, if your brain injury was caused by a fall in a department store, and the fall was caused by an unsafe condition in the store, the store management or building owner may be held liable for your brain injury.
