What is a Head Injury?

A head injury is any trauma that occurs to the scalp, skull, or brain. The severity of a head injury can vary, ranging from a minor bump or bruise to a more serious injury that can cause long-term effects on the brain.

On average, there were 12,093 hospitalizations each year due to motor vehicle traffic-related injuries, hospitalizing 61.5 of every 100,000 New Yorkers. The rates were highest for males and New Yorkers ages 20-24 followed by those ages 65 and older. [1]

Types Of Head Injuries

There are several types of head injuries that a person can experience, ranging from mild to severe.

If the head injury occurred due to the negligence or intentional actions of another individual, contact a head injury lawyer at Goldberg & Loren to help protect your rights and secure compensation.

Common Symptoms of a Head Injury

The symptoms of a head injury can vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury.

For mild head injuries, symptoms may include:

For more serious head injuries, such as moderate or severe traumatic brain injury, symptoms may include:

In some cases, a person with a head injury may experience mood changes, such as depression or anxiety, and may have difficulty sleeping.

Common Symptoms of a Head Injury​

Treatment for Head Injuries

For mild head injuries, such as a concussion, treatment options typically involve rest and symptom management through medications such as acetaminophen to manage headaches and rest to allow the brain to recover.

More serious head injuries may involve surgery to remove blood clots or to relieve pressure on the brain, as well as medications such as anti-seizure medications or diuretics to help reduce swelling.

All head injuries from mild to serious require guidance from medical care from a medical professional as soon as possible after the injury. 

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy may be necessary to help regain strength, balance, and coordination. People with head injuries may experience deficits in these areas, which can make it difficult to perform everyday tasks such as walking, standing or getting in and out of bed.

Physical therapy can help by using specialized exercises and techniques to target specific areas of need.

These may include exercises to improve balance, flexibility, and muscle strength, as well as exercises to improve posture and coordination.

Physical therapists may also use therapeutic massage or electrical stimulation to help relieve pain and promote healing. Massage can also help facilitate emotional and psychological healing following a head injury.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy can provide valuable assistance to individuals with a brain injury as it is primarily focused on helping individuals regain the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) in order to facilitate their independence and functionality.

An occupational therapist will work closely with individuals with a brain injury to assess their physical and cognitive abilities, as well as their specific needs, and then develop a customized treatment plan tailored to their unique circumstances.

They will often use a range of therapeutic techniques to help individuals with brain injuries to improve their coordination, motor skills, and overall physical functioning. Cognitive therapy techniques such as task-based assignments, memory-training activities, and exercises designed to promote problem-solving can be used to improve cognitive functioning.

Occupational therapists also provide practical suggestions, such as using adaptive equipment to assist with everyday tasks and modifications for the school or workplace to help facilitate the individual’s transition back into the community.

They may work with other healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists, speech therapists, and neuropsychologists to provide a very comprehensive program. Through this multidisciplinary approach, occupational therapists are able to assist individuals in overcoming the impacts of a brain injury and regaining their independence, functionality, and quality of life.

Medical Expenses & Bills After a Head Injury

Head injuries can result in significant medical expenses, including hospitalization, diagnostic testing, medications, and ongoing therapies.

Medical bills can quickly add up, leaving individuals and their families struggling to cover the financial costs.

Medical expenses may be the responsibility of the party at fault in the event of an accident-related injury. The at-fault party’s insurance may also be responsible for covering medical costs.

Insurance policies can be complicated, and determining who is responsible for paying for medical expenses may require legal advice.

At Goldberg & Loren, we have the experience and knowledge to assess these cases and determine who is liable for covering medical expenses related to a head injury.

Fair Compensation 

At Goldberg & Loren, we understand that the amount of financial compensation you receive depends on several factors, such as the severity of the injury, how it has impacted your life, medical expenses incurred, and loss of earning capacity.

Our personal injury lawyers will work to gather evidence, negotiate with the insurance company, and advocate on their behalf. By doing so, we can help ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive maximum compensation.
