Seeking compensation for your loved one's wrongful death

When you are informed that a loved one has died, one of the first questions you might ask is how. You want to know what took the life of your loved one. Imagine that you learned your loved one died because of another person's negligence. It might be because of a brain injury caused by an accident with a drunk driver. It might be because of an accident caused by a faulty product. Both of those scenarios have one thing in common -- you might opt to seek compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one.

Mild blast-related brain injuries can cause brain abnormalities

Members of the United States military who serve in combat zones can often suffer serious injuries. In the case of Afghanistan and Iraq combat zones, injuries from improvised explosive devices were common. Many of those blast-related injuries led to traumatic brain injuries. A study published in NeuroImage: Clinical shows that brain abnormalities are even associated with mild TBIs.

Olfactory responses may indicate brain injuries in patients

If you've been hurt in an accident, you expect a medical team to take the time to make sure you're well and on the road to recovery. Sometimes, major tests and procedures need to take place to help you along. To diagnose a condition in the brain, a CAT scan or MRI may be needed.

What are brain injuries like?

Living with a brain injury in Washington, D.C., is a difficult and tiring road. The consequences of your injury can be unpredictable, making it hard to know what else you may be faced with. Brain injuries can cause changes in your personality, in the way you act or even in the way you think, making it harder for you to get through daily tasks without a challenge.

Brain damage caused by car accidents can be serious

Traumatic brain injuries affect around 1.7 million people each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those, 17.3 percent are the result of a motor vehicle or traffic accident. Readers in Washington, District of Columbia, might be interested in learning a little more about traumatic brain injuries.

Brain injury study looks at duration of TBI symptoms

Brain trauma can happen in many ways, from the whiplash forces unleashed in a car crash to the hard impact of skull with pavement when a pedestrian is struck by a car or truck. One of the greatest challenges in helping head injury victims obtain compensation in a personal injury lawsuit is fully assessing and anticipating the extent and duration of harm caused by traumatic brain injury (TBI).
