Whether by medical malpractice or blunt force trauma, brain injuries occur far too often. In many cases, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and brain damage are the result of someone’s negligence, carelessness, or liability. The Pittman Firm, P.A. advocates for victims of brain injury, and fights to recover the financial compensation they deserve for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Although rarer than brain injury caused by head trauma, medical negligence can lead to serious brain damage. For example, lack of oxygen can kill brain cells, causing permanent damage. Also, undetected internal bleeding, such as hematoma, can also lead to permanent disability.
In many cases, head trauma causes brain injury. One prime example of this is the lasting effects a car, truck, or motorcycle accident can have on the victims. In motor vehicle accidents, it is not uncommon for drivers and passengers to sustain traumatic brain injury due to the excessive force of a vehicle (or the road) in the event of impact. Another trauma-related cause of brain injuries is construction or industrial work. Falling objects or falls from heights, in particular, are a top cause of brain injury.
Signs of a brain injury can include:

The ability to recover from a brain injury, either in part or completely, depends largely on the severity of your injury. The prognosis for recovering from a mild traumatic brain injury is usually better than that of a more serious injury. Generally speaking, those who suffer a mild head injury usually recover within three months. While recovering from a more serious injury can take longer there is also a higher chance you will need some form of other medical intervention as part of your recovery processes such as physical therapy or speech therapy.
The Pittman Firm, P.A. is available to represent victims of brain injury and their families. If you or someone you love suffered lasting damage due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness, we are here for you.
