Brain injuries are the second-leading cause of disability in the United States. Over 3 million Americans suffer from traumatic brain injuries, more than 4 million have brain injuries from strokes and around 500,000 have cerebral palsy from other causes. For these victims and their loved ones, a brain injury changes everything about their lives. Victims who lose important physical or mental abilities may need to abandon or radically change future plans; give up some part of their independence; or become isolated.
In addition to being devastating, brain injuries can be very expensive due to ongoing therapy or even round-the-clock care. At Gage Mathers in Phoenix, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to represent you as you pursue compensation for a serious brain injury.
These Injuries Affect Nearly Every Part Of Your Life
Brain injuries can be catastrophic. The effects can vary widely depending upon the part of the brain that has been injured and the extent of the damage. Some of the major symptoms include:
- Memory loss
- Intense headaches or migraines
- Visual disturbances
- Trouble speaking
- Trouble with reasoning and making judgments
- Lack of coordination
- Irritability and personality changes
- Attention deficits
- Difficulty with common movements and activities
- Weakness in arms and legs
Some brain injury victims may never fully recover. Victims may have permanent problems with their movement, senses, emotions or cognitive abilities, or even changes in personality. Brain injuries can occur from medical mistakes, stroke, birth injuries, motor vehicle crashes, falling and hitting your head, pedestrian accidents, bike crashes, and sports accidents.
