According to Privett:

"I've been practicing law for over 35 years. This gives me the ability to make decisions based on experience and sound reasoning being seasoned in trial combat."

When someone is injured, several potential problems arise. The first and most immediate issue is the process of healing from these injuries, but this is generally only the beginning of the overall recovery effort that one must undertake when this happens. There are many more issues to consider, and these could take years to resolve.

This is especially true if a person suffers a head injury. Despite the billions of dollars that are spent every year on medical research, the head and brain remain enormous mysteries for many involved in the medical science field. When a head injury is caused by the actions of another, it can also present a complicated legal situation for those involved.

Common Complications with a Head Injury

When a ‘typical’ injury occurs, such as a broken leg for example, the patient can generally expect to endure a pre-defined recovery period, and when that passes it is possible he or she can expect a return to full health. This is not always the case with a head injury, as several unknowns can be present and several complications can arise.

Passage of Time After a Head Injury

When a person suffers a head injury, it may not present itself immediately, even to a trained medical professional. A brain injury in particular can take months if not years to manifest itself, and this happens at an alarming rate.

Head Injury Affecting Other Areas of the Body

When a person suffers a head injury, he or she may not even experience pain or other symptoms in his or her head, but rather can experience symptoms in other parts of the body. For instance, if a person’s brain is injured, it may result in numbness of the extremities, pain in the legs, back pain and many other maladies. This only makes the diagnosis of a head injury that much more difficult.

Healing a Head Injury

As stated above, many injuries heal within an easily-defined period of time. However, this is often not the case with a head injury. If a person’s brain is damaged, it may not be possible to surgically or therapeutically repair the damage, and a person may face the prospect of never completely getting over the injuries that have been inflicted on a victim.

Expenses Associated with a Head Injury

The types of tests, therapy and medications involved with treating head injury are enormously expensive, and given the undefined healing period that is associated with many of these injuries, these expenses can last for years or even a lifetime. This is a problem that can literally bankrupt a head injury victim if he or she does not seek legal help.

If you or someone you love has suffered a head injury as a result of someone else’s actions, then you need to take immediate action to protect yourself both medically and legally. In the medical context, you should spare no time or expense if you need the help, as undiagnosed or untreated head injuries can not only completely debilitate a victim, but these injuries can also prove to be fatal.

If you are dealing with a head injury or a loved one that has received a head injury you need to seek the help of a qualified neurologist. He or she will not only be able to administer such tests as an MRI, but these professionals specialize in treating problems with the head, brain and spine, which will only improve your chances of obtaining an accurate diagnosis and as a result achieving a higher level of recovery.

One of the reasons that you should not hesitate to seek this level of attention, besides protecting your health, is that if you have been injured as a result of someone else’s actions, you may not have to concern yourself with the prospect of insurmountable medical bills. A head injury attorney will not only be able to listen to your situation and to help you evaluate which parties could be responsible for your suffering, but he or she may also be able to help you make sure that all of your immediate medical needs have been met, as a head injury attorney should possess a high degree of experience in helping those who have suffered this sort of injury as a result of someone else’s actions.
