Omaha Closed Head Injury Attorney

Help for Those Suffering from Blunt Force Trauma to the Head

Suffering a brain injury can result in widespread damage that can affect any and all aspects of a victim’s physical, emotional, and mental capacity. During a closed head injury, blunt force trauma to the head of a victim will cause his or her brain to jostle within the skull, impacting both the front and back of the skull. This trauma felt directly on the brain can cause both temporary and permanent damage to the brain, which will have a variety of effects depending on the location and severity of the injury.

At Cullan & Cullan LLC, our Nebraska personal injury lawyers understand that the damage felt in a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can last for years after an accident, hurting not only a victim’s personal wellbeing but their finances and ability to support themselves and dependents. To defend your rights after a head injury, it is important to understand the effects of such accidents and how you may be able to pursue compensation when you are injured due to another’s reckless actions.

The Widespread Effects of a Closed Head Injury

Because the brain controls all functions of the body, any and all functions can be affected by a TBI. Emotional damages can include sudden alterations to the mood of a victim that can be both temporary and permanent, such as irritability, sadness, anger, clinical depression, and other emotions that were previously uncommon in the victim. Mental damage includes coma, memory loss, loss of speech ability, difficulty concentrating, and other difficulties or losses in mental capacity. Physically, a TBI victim may have trouble properly moving or controlling limbs, suffer headaches, have blurred vision, become nauseous, lack energy, suffer constant dizziness, and have other physical losses.

Pursuing Those Responsible for Your Losses

Closed head injuries can be the result of many different types of accidents such as car crashes, slip and falls, and on the job incidents. However, all of these accidents have something in common: they are frequently the result of the actions of a party other than the victim. As such, Nebraska law allows victims to pursue compensation for all losses that resulted from a closed head injury. This can include all medical costs for the emergency, hospital, and rehabilitation care, all financial losses due to being unable to work, and the emotional and mental trauma from the injuries.
