Head injuries are common as the result of motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls, or being struck by or against objects, such as when engaged in sports or recreational pursuits. When even a minor bump, blow, or jolt to the head occurs, it can cause disruptions in the brain that impact every area of your life. These injuries do have the potential to be life threatening, so seeking medical care immediately is important. Once you have received a diagnosis, the following outlines what you can expect during your recovery.
Head injuries are nothing to take lightly. Even an otherwise minor accident can leave you with a concussion or a skull fracture, resulting in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Signs of TBI can be subtle, often leading patients to neglect getting the medical attention they need.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) advises that there are a variety of diagnostic tests available to detect brain injuries and the impact it is likely to have on your health and in other areas of your life. These include:
Even a mild head injury can take months to recover from and may result in permanent disabilities. In addition to being unable to work or perform certain tasks on your job, Brainline advises that you may require help in doing otherwise simple household tasks, such as cleaning, cooking, or attending to personal hygiene.
Head and brain injuries can also impact your memory and thought processes, while causing sleep disturbances and significant changes mood. This can lead to feelings of isolation or anxiety, bouts of depression, and angry outbursts. Options that can help you during your recovery include:

We can’t thank you enough for all you have done.
Attorney Michael Massino made me feel so relaxed. I really appreciate all he did for me.
I was represented by your firm in the above referenced matter. I received a letter in the mail seeking my feedback as it related to the services I received. I am happy to take a moment to respond. In all areas I would rate the firm with all 5’s (excellent). The attorney that represented me was Alex Beck. Alex was so easy to talk to, communication was always open, with the steps and processes clearly laid out and understandable to me. Alex is just a very likable great guy, while at the same time being a very knowledgeable professional in his discipline. I have already in the past ,and will continue to in the future, refer your law firm to friends and family. I’d also like to say Donna was of tremendous help and was an absolute pleasure to be assisted by. Thank you, James Nichols
