March is Brain Injury Awareness month. It exists to remind us all of the prevalence of serious brain injury and the importance of doing everything we can to support those living with this type of severe trauma.
It is true that traumatic brain injuries can have long-term implications for cognitive and physical health. In general, the more severe the head injury, the more severe these lasting effects will be.
It is entirely possible to suffer a brain injury in a motor vehicle accident or other incident and not realize the extent of the trauma right away. Because brain trauma can be hidden to the naked eye (you won’t necessarily be bleeding), you may not be aware your brain was harmed until your doctor has a chance to examine you.
As the weeks, months and even the years pass, there may be serious implications that affect your quality of life, your relationships and your livelihood:
Brain injuries can make it impossible to perform your job duties. They can strain your relationships and negatively impact your mental health. These effects may or may not get worse over time. You may have just recently learned that certain symptoms and difficulties in your life were caused by a traumatic brain injury. Depending on the original cause of the personal injury and how long ago it took place, you may be able to file a claim to pursue compensation and justice with the help of our lawyers. Although we cannot guarantee a monetary recovery, we do promise to advocate tirelessly on your behalf. We relentlessly pursue the best possible outcomes for our clients.
If you live in Louisville, Jeffersonville, or any of the surrounding areas in Kentucky or Indiana, the Karl Truman Law Office wants to hear about your brain injury. In a complimentary consultation, we can determine if you have a case. For your free case review, please call us at 502-222-2222.
