Anthony Quackenbush is a West Palm Beach Brain Injury Lawyer who has the experience you need to obtain the highest level of compensation allowed for all of the damages you sustain.
Brain injuries are called either traumatic or non-traumatic, depending on the particular cause.
Traumatic brain injury is caused by trauma to the head from a hard blow, car accident, fall, knife wound or gunshot. TBI can cause several issues for the person who is injured. This may include changes in the person’s behavior, physical changes, or problems with thinking skills.
Non-traumatic brain injuries do not involve external forces. Rather, these injuries are caused by infection or by exposure to toxic agents such as lead or carbon monoxide. They may also be the result of events which block or limit the presence or proper use of oxygen in the brain.

A brain injury can be detected on an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT scan, or DTI testing.
When you have sustained a serious brain injury, you may need to see more than one doctor over the course of your medical treatment. These may include a neurologist, who is frequently a consultant rather than a primary doctor for head-injured patients. A neurosurgeon is a physician who operates on your brain and will work to reduce the damage to the nerves, the brain and the rest of the body.Discuss your Rights with a South Florida Brain Injury Law Firm
When you suffer a brain injury, you might regrettably wind up with enduring impairments as well as gait difficulties and limps, speech problems and slurred speech, amnesia and other memory problems, and seizures. These symptoms can be the consequence of atrophy in your brain or low blood flow to some parts of your brain. You might need to see a neuropsychologist in order to determine your level of cognitive injury. He will compare the results from the neuropsychological testing to a baseline (for example, neuropsychological testing from before the accident) and determine the effects of the accident on your cognitive abilities.
You might also need to see a speech therapist to help you with your speech depending on the level of your injuries. You may also need to see a physical therapist to help you with your gate depending on the level of your gait difficulties.
If you are suffering seizures after your brain injury, you might need to remain on prescription medication in order to prevent further seizures. In fact, you may be required to take medication for the rest of your life.Contact Anthony Quackenbush, Broward County Brain Injury Attorney/Lawyer
