When injured after hitting your head, consequences can lead to a traumatic brain disorder, and sometimes, sadly, death. While some traumatic brain injury symptoms can go undetected for years, having a qualified injury lawyer can be the differentiating factor when pursuing pain and suffering, medical expenses, rehabilitative costs, and any other damages. As this injury is highly complex and challenging, speaking to a brain injury lawyer immediately is vital to getting the money you deserve.
