Head Injury Attorney in New York

Head Injuries are dangerous and should be taken very seriously as even a sub-concussive blow to the head or mild concussion can have long-lasting consequences. Injuries to the head can impact the mobility of the body and much of its functions. The mental abilities can also get affected after you’ve suffered a head injury. For many people, a head injury can lead to impairment, disability and a significant time off work. You would need the help of a personal injury lawyer to understand what to expect when fighting to get fair compensation from whoever was responsible for the injuries caused. 

Common causes of Head Injuries

In many cases, head injuries can be sustained while playing sports or while someone is at work etc. In New York, the common causes of head injury include:-

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Fall accidents
  • Assault
  • Accidents where the victim is struck by an object
  • Slip Accidents

Many different kinds of head injury cases stem from work accidents. People working at construction sites are particularly at high risk of sustaining a head injury in falls from roofs, ladders or scaffolding. Even those working on the ground are vulnerable and are often struck by objects falling from heights or by debris. 

Warning signs in a Head Injury

Closed head injuries are very subtle and it might get difficult to figure out what the real problem is initially. In many cases, the accident victims don’t even realize for days or weeks after the incident that they suffered a head injury. Here are a few symptoms that suggest that you have suffered a head injury:-

  • Headache
  • Memory loss
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Slight tingling feeling in your feet, arms or legs

Watch out for these signs to ensure you get the medical attention you need. 

What are the consequences of a serious Head Injury?

When your head gets injured, most of the times the injury reaches the brain too.  The brain has control over your complete body. A serious injury can cause a total dysfunction of your physical and mental abilities. 

Head injury victims in serious conditions suffer from:-

  • Muscle weakness
  • Coma
  • Personality changes
  • Short term or long-term memory loss
  • Tremors
  • Memory loss
  • Speech loss
