Brain injuries are some of the most common types of injuries in personal injury accidents. From falls to traffic accidents and workplace accidents, brain injuries can result from almost any personal injury accident. For an accident victim with a mild head injury, symptoms may go away completely in a few days to a few weeks. However, the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can last years.

Sometimes, the result of a brain injury can be permanent. In these cases, the brain injury impacts the victim and the entire family. Because brain injuries range in severity from mild to traumatic, the impact of a brain injury on the victim and his or her family varies greatly.

How Does A Brain Injury Impact The Family?

Brain injuries can be some of the most difficult accident injuries to diagnose and treat. For example, a closed head injury may not have any outward signs of trauma; however, the damage from a closed head injury can result in permanent disabilities.

Several diagnostic tests (i.e. CT scan, MRI, etc.) help doctors diagnose a brain injury. However, because symptoms of a brain injury may not immediately appear after an accident, some people do not seek immediate medical treatment. Only after symptoms have become persistently worse do they seek treatment. At this point, the brain damage may be irreversible.

Symptoms of a brain injury fall into one of three categories:

Physical Symptoms of Brain Injuries – Vomiting, fatigue, loss of consciousness, headache, sleeping problems, changes in eating habits, nausea, dizziness, loss of coordination, seizures, convulsions, and weakness or numbness in the extremities.

Sensory Symptoms of Brain Injuries – Blurred vision, light sensitivity, ringing in the ears, sensitivity to sound, and changes in ability to smell.

Mental or Cognitive Symptoms of Brain Injuries – Mood swings, changes in mood, depression, concentration problems, coma, slurred speech, confusion, combativeness, and agitation.

Symptoms can interfere with your ability to take care of yourself and your family.  In addition to being unable to work, you may be unable to perform household chores, run errands, do carpool, and attend school functions. Your family may need to absorb the tasks that you would perform before the accident.

In addition, your family may need to take care of you depending on the severity of your symptoms. In the case of a traumatic brain injury or severe head trauma, your symptoms may be permanent. You may require ongoing, long-term personal care and medical care.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
