Mark Roman | August 17, 2017 | Brain Injuries
At Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers, we represent clients facing life-altering medical conditions due to non-traumatic brain injuries. Our compassionate Clearwater brain injury lawyers can discuss your options and fight for your right to compensation. While many people think of traumatic brain injuries as more serious, non-traumatic brain injuries can also have severe consequences
Here’s what you need to know about non-traumatic brain injuries:
- Causes: Traumatic brain injuries are caused by external forces, such as falling and hitting your head. On the other hand, non-traumatic brain injuries are caused by internal factors. These include viruses, strokes, drug abuse, brain tumors, lack of oxygen, infections, and exposure to certain toxins and chemicals.
- Symptoms: Symptoms of non-traumatic brain injuries are often severe and can last for months or years. In some cases, they can even affect the patient permanently. They include memory loss, impaired cognitive function, behavioral changes, paralysis, headaches, depression, confusion, difficulty concentrating, and fatigue.
- Treatments: Because no two brain injuries are the same, treatments vary for each patient. Therapy, rehabilitation, and medications can be used to treat symptoms of non-traumatic brain injuries. Surgery is also an option in certain situations to help relieve pressure around the brain and manage hemorrhaging.
Seek Compensation for a Non-Traumatic Brain Injury
If you or a family member has sustained a non-traumatic brain injury, you may be able to seek compensation. Depending on the situation, you can file a claim against your healthcare provider or employer. Our Clearwater brain injury attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience and can represent you every step of the way. If your injury was caused by a negligent physician or by exposure to toxins at work, we can represent you in court as you seek the financial relief you need.
