New Hampshire Brain Injury Lawyers

Representation from the Lawyers of Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey

The brain is a sensitive organ housed in the most secure structure in the human body, the skull. Trauma to the brain can be caused by a blow to the head when pressure travels through the skull to bruise the brain tissue. Violent movements can cause tears in brain tissues and create additional bleeding. Trauma of this nature has devastating consequences and results in catastrophic injury, because sensitive brain tissue manages just about every function of the mind and body. When it is injured, there are many possible types of symptoms, some so serious as to be completely debilitating, that recovery from brain injuries is never a simple affair.

Manifestations of a Brain Injury

A brain injury is not always immediately evident. There may not have been a direct blow to the head or any contusion or outward sign of brain trauma. Sometimes this type of injury is slow to reveal itself and may be misdiagnosed. However there are certain signs that might indicate that a closed head injury is present. If you or a loved one recently was in an accident, here are a few signs to look for: persistent headache or neck pain, trouble with memory or concentration, becoming confused, mood swings, disruption in sleeping patterns, increased sensitivity to light or sounds, hearing problems, loss of the sense of smell or taste and/or nausea.

If any of these symptoms present themselves, seed medical advice as soon as possible. Signs of severe injury like unconsciousness, convulsions, slurred speech, weakness, can't be awakened, and similar serious physical changes must receive immediate medical attention. To delay treatment could mean permanent disability or even death.
