Brain injuries are more common in vehicle crashes than you might think. And they don't get the awareness and educational attention they deserve. Athletic trainers and parents of active kids may know this, but really, we all should. The brain – yours, your family member's or friend's – is a complex and sensitive organ.
With more than 20 years of experience in helping people injured in accidents, the Law Office of Schroeder & Mandel wants you to be familiar with the most respected resources and news items regarding concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Over the years, we've helped clients understand the facets of brain injuries. Insurance companies or doctors' office often overlook or confuse your symptoms, leaving you clueless about why, months after the crash, you're feeling "foggy."
One of Rick's former clients, injured in a significant vehicle collision, was told by her physician, "you'll be fine, just go back to doing what you normally do." She took his advice and resumed her life. Two years later her set of symptoms remained. Rick helped her find a physician experienced in TBI and before long, the client was receiving therapy for the very symptoms that had lingered since the accident. She had lived, worked and managed her life plagued with TBI-related symptoms that her original physician had refused to understand, diagnose and treat.
If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident and has any symptoms that have not been tended by medical professionals, get care immediately.
