A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be devastating both physically and mentally. Closed head trauma is more difficult than other injuries because from the outside, you might look completely healthy, but on the inside, your brain has suffered serious harm. Your loved ones may not understand what is causing you to act differently, why your memory isn't what it used to be, or why you struggle holding a job. When people can't see your injury, they often have difficulty grasping your pain.
It is not uncommon for people living with a TBI to feel misunderstood and lonely. However, it is important to know that according to the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina, there are about 61,000 South Carolinians living with a TBI-related disability right now. You are most certainly not alone, and the Law Office of Kenneth Berger in Columbia, SC is here to help you obtain the medical care and compensation your injuries require.
The Effects of Closed Head Trauma Can Take Many Forms
I have met individuals just like you who have had their lives turned upside-down in an instant. I understand how complex this situation is, and how frustrated you probably feel. As the doctors have hopefully explained by now, the effects of a head injury can range from a couple weeks to a lifetime. Contrary to how you might expect a lawyer to feel, it is my sincere hope that your TBI resolves quickly, and that you make a full recovery.
However, if you are having any of the following symptoms, know that they are often associated with closed head trauma, and may call for additional medical care:
- Persistent headaches
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Mood swings
- Depression, anxiety, and angry outbursts
- Changed sleep patterns
- Slurred speech
- Loss of coordination & balance
- Numbness or weakness in toes and fingers
Suffering from one of these effects is hard enough, but many people are dealing with several, if not all, of these issues every single day of their lives. With everything you endure on a daily basis, you should not have to worry about paying your medical bills or how you're going to support yourself if you can't return to work. By allowing my law firm to handle your case, you can take pressure off of yourself and concentrate more on recovering and spending time with loved ones.
