South Carolina Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys Seek Justice for Accident Victims

 South Carolina head trauma lawyers providing experienced and focused representation

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a penetrating or concussive head wound that causes damage to the brain and disrupts its normal function. TBIs occur when the head violently and suddenly hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. The attorney at The Law Offices of David L. Hood and co-counsel have a familiarity with the medical and legal issues involved in TBIs and can provide significant benefits in the resolution of your case.

What are the symptoms and consequences of a brain injury?

There are two basic types of brain injuries. In open head injuries, the skull is fractured. A closed head injury does not involve a skull fracture, but these injuries can be even more serious than open head injuries because the brain may swell or blood clots may form under the skull.

Brain injuries can cause many complications even when the victim appears outwardly healthy. Symptoms of complications you should be alert to and take seriously after you have sustained a head injury include:

  • Severe headache
  • Confusion and difficulty remembering events
  • Lightheadedness and dizziness
  • Blurred vision or tired eyes
  • Numbness or weakness on one side of the body
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Unusual tiredness

After any impact to the head, it is important to seek medical attention. Even an injury with minor symptoms could potentially have serious consequences if left untreated.

Because these injuries can result in serious and long-lasting damage that affects your ability to perform everyday activities, it is important to retain an experienced Charleston traumatic brain injury attorney to represent and protect your interests.

People who have sustained a TBI may struggle with disabilities including the following:

  • Speech and language deficits such as difficulty speaking, reading or writing
  • Memory loss
  • Partial or total vision loss
  • Loss of the sense of touch, smell or taste

Victims of TBIs often require a lifetime of care. An experienced attorney can help you pursue compensation for costs of treatment, therapy and home-care.
