Brain injuries can impact everything from the way you speak to the way you move. They can cause you to have forgetfulness, changes in your behaviors or attitude and more. Overall, they’re dangerous and can cause lifelong changes that you may never recover from.

Brain injuries happen in many ways, from boating accidents to bumping your head at work. Whether you’re on the dock or out at sea, it’s important that you’re able to make a claim to get the medical care you need. A head injury is nothing to take lightly. Good medical care is essential.

There are many different kinds of brain injuries. These include:

  • Hypoxia
  • Near-death drowning
  • Open head injuries
  • Contusions
  • Concussions

Each of these types of injuries has the potential to cause a number of symptoms. They could range from minor headaches to changes in your ability to speak or move freely. Some people suffer brain injuries that are so severe that they’re forever changed and unable to live a life like they had prior to the accident.

After suffering a brain injury, victims and their families need to know where to turn. Medical care is expensive, and you may well need long-term care. The good news is that your attorney can help you fight to get fair compensation from the individuals and/or entities responsible for the injuries so that you can focus on your recovery.
