Brain injuries are one of the most debilitating traumas that a person can experience. Unfortunately, acquired brain injuries affect thousands of Americans every year. 

As the center that directly controls motor skills, cognitive reasoning abilities, and basic physical functions such as walking and talking, any damage sustained to the brain is a cause for concern. Having an experienced brain damage attorney in DC on your side can help you focus on what’s important – your recovery.

What Should I Do If I suspect a Brain Injury Has Occurred?

The most important step to take if you suspect a brain injury has occurred is to call an ambulance. The sooner you consult a medical professional, the better your chances. A neurological examination eliminates the extent and intensity of the brain damage.

In addition to an MRI and CT scan, a doctor will diagnose your brain injury based on the circumstances of the injury, whether the person lost consciousness and any changes in behavior following the injury. While many victims of brain injuries recover quickly, this is unfortunately not always the case.

As an innocent party, you should have to carry the result of another’s mistake for the rest of your life. Whether your injuries are the result of another person’s careless driving, or someone else’s negligence, or other causes, it’s important to seek professional help from an experienced personal injury lawyer.
