Brain damage is most typically caused by a forceful impact to the head and can include complications such as lack of oxygen and brain swelling which causes pressure inside the skull and consequent damage to the brain tissue. Unfortunately a closed head injury frequently goes undiagnosed in an ER. These injuries can develop over time and a victim may not even be aware they have sustained a head injury until a later date when their disposition changes, they cannot concentrate, have a loss of vision or blurry vision, have problems with memory or suffer a loss of hearing. At every level of a brain injury, the victim can experience emotional, physical, social and even work related changes in their life. Recovery can be a long term process and the brain injured person may need to see neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, vocational specialists and more. A Columbus personal injury lawyer can help Ohio families prevent financial devastation due to the serious injury, by working with experts to put together a strong legal case in their behalf.
