• Don’t Go “Light” on Brain Injuries: Consult a Cleveland Brain Injury Lawyer

    Posted on June 13th, 2011 admin No comments

    Brain injuries can be serious life changing traumas, but are all too often taken lightly. That’s why New York legislators are currently considering legislation that would require student athletes who have even mild brain injuries to be benched or sidelined until they’re symptom free for at least 24 hours. Other areas are considering similar measures. It’s an idea that’s gained a lot of traction lately in the Cleveland brain injury lawyer community.

    “It happens far too much, but it’s not just the rate that counts. It’s our current awareness that this is a real injury, that a blow to the head is as bad as a broken arm, and needs time to recover, and you have varying times to recover for various people,” Sen. Kemp Hannon, a Long Island Republican who chairs the Senate Health Committee, recently told the AP.

    It happens all too often. Even more troubling, many families neglect consulting a Cleveland brain injury lawyer, and don’t receive the financial resources to meet the considerable lifelong expenses they’ll be facing. Unlike a broken arm, serious brain injuries don’t heal in a few weeks. A brain injury can affect a person for the rest of their lives, often requiring steep medical expenses and costly lifetime care. Injuries of the brain and spine can lead to a lifetime of dependency. You or your loved one may lose their livelihood, health insurance or even personal property.

    Sadly, most brain injuries are preventable; however, once they occur, they cannot be taken back. The quality of life is determined by the level of care obtained. Taking those responsible to court is really more about advocating for the care of your loved one than justice or revenge.

    At Linton & Hirshman LLC, their attorneys understand the challenges your family faces. With considerable experience, extensive connections with medical experts and specialists, and professional dedication have helped hundreds of families of brain injury victims – they don’t take a brain injury lightly. Talking to a Cleveland brain injury lawyer may be the most important decision you make for your family.
