An injury to the head, especially one that affects the brain or spinal cord, can have life-changing consequences. Full or partial paralysis, mental impairment, and even the inability to speak are all possible results, and these types of injuries often require therapy for many years — and they may persist throughout one’s life. Motor vehicle collisions, construction accidents, assaults, and even slip-and-fall accidents are common sources of these injuries.
Any forceful impact to the head — or a situation in which the brain is deprived of oxygen, such as electric shock — can have big, long-term consequences. In addition to potential neurological symptoms, these injuries can make themselves known in the form of behavioral changes, headaches, and dizziness.
