Approximately 1.7 million Americans suffer from a traumatic brain injury every year, and more than 70,000 experience a long-term disability due to their injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, refers to an injury caused by trauma to the head. TBIs can often be debilitating, severe, and even fatal. Contusions are severe TBIs that can occur from slip and falls, auto, trucking, and motorcycle accidents. Often symptoms of contusions don’t reveal themselves for days or even weeks after an accident.
After receiving medical attention for your contusion, your next move is to contact an expert traumatic brain injury attorney. At Loutos Law, our legal team is well-versed in handling complex contusion injury cases and can help you get the compensation you are rightfully entitled to.
Common Brian Contusion Causes
A brain contusion is caused by trauma to the head, resulting in severe bleeding or bruising of the brain. A “cerebral contusion” refers to bruised brain tissue. Often, larger contusions require extensive surgery and could severely impact the quality of your life.
How We Help
Consult With An Expert Contusion Injuries Attorney
The first thing to do following a possible head trauma is to immediately seek medical treatment. The emergency room doctor should run the patient through all of the standard tests and procedures to diagnose TBIs such as a cerebral contusion. However, even MRIs and CT scans may not always offer conclusive evidence necessary to confidently diagnose a TBI, and further tests may be required. As expert traumatic brain injury attorneys, Loutos Law stays up to date on the latest tests and technologies for TBIs, and will guide you through this difficult time to make sure you receive the appropriate care and treatment so that you can focus on your recovery.
