CAN A BRAIN INJURY IMPACT THE ENTIRE FAMILY?

CAN A BRAIN INJURY IMPACT THE ENTIRE FAMILY?

Posted on Monday, October 31st, 2016 at 7:12 am    

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.

The Tiemann law Firm has been very good to me ever since I walked in the door. James and Emily have been very responsive and professional and make me feel comfortable when I start to freak out a bit. Accidents can be pretty stressful and I feel like they’ve gone above and beyond. I’m happy that keep me up-to-date on how my case is going. I appreciate that they make me feel like a priority and that they take my case serious. I have already recommend them to a few friends and family members. God forbid I get into another accident, but if I do, I know exactly where to come for help.

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 Tiemannn 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.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

No-one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
