Birmingham Head and Brain Injury Lawyers
Construction workers regularly handle heavy machinery and materials in the course of their jobs, often doing so while working on buildings or other structures from significant heights. If they are not handled properly, tools and other materials could cause someone severe injury, especially if they fall from a distant height. Blunt force trauma of this nature could not only cause superficial cuts and bruising, but could also damage the victim’s brain. Injuries of this nature could severely affect someone’s long term health and require them to receive regular medical assistance. In this situation, if the injury was caused by another party’s negligence, victims may be able to pursue compensation from the responsible party.
If you have suffered a head or brain injury in a construction accident due to someone else’s reckless actions, you may want to consider taking legal action to protect your rights. A Birmingham head and brain injury attorney of Yearout & Traylor, P.C., may be able to provide you with the professional legal representation you need to pursue the compensation that you need. Call our office today at 205-414-8160.
Signs of a Brain Injury
While most head injuries will be visibly noticeable through signs such as bleeding and bruising, damage done to the brain can be much more difficult to detect. Traumatic brain injuries are particularly dangerous because, in addition to presenting nonspecific symptoms, they can lead to secondary complications if they are not treated soon after the incident. Following are several symptoms that a brain injury might present:
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears
Anyone who has been the victim of a head injury should be examined by a medical professional to ensure that they receive proper treatment in case they suffered any kind of brain damage.
Victims of head and brain injuries should not have to suffer through their unexpected injury alone. Contact a Birmingham head and brain injury lawyer of Yearout & Traylor, P.C., to determine what your legal options are for holding the responsible individual liable for your injuries and other losses.
