Springfield Brain Injury Attorney
Among the most dangerous injuries an individual can sustain are head injuries.
Head injuries may occur in a number of ways and may lead to significant
behavioral changes. Unfortunately, there is currently no way for doctors
to repair damaged brain tissue, meaning that the consequences of a serious
head injury can be permanent.
Many head injuries are the result of negligence or even malice. If you
or someone you love suffered a head injury because of someone else’s
negligence, contact the Springfield personal injury lawyers of Strong-Garner-Bauer
P.C. at (417) 855-2022.
Types of Injuries
Many head injuries occur when an individual receives blunt force to the
head. Blunt force is typically defined as any type of force that does
not puncture the skin. Individuals may suffer blunt force to the head
when they slip and fall, get in fights, or hit their heads in an automobile accident.
Common examples of head injuries are:
- Cerebral contusion
- Nerve or spinal cord damage
Any of these injuries may lead to further complications, so it is important
to receive medical treatment at the first sign of a head injury. If doctors
do find that a greater problem exists, head injury victims may be left
with large medical bills and lost wages while they recover. Fortunately,
they may be entitled to financial compensation.
Head injuries can severely debilitate an individual, rendering him or her
unfit to work. If you or your loved one suffered a head injury due to
another person’s negligence, contact the
