Brain Injury Attorney in Rochester NY
Brain Injuries can occur in different types of accidents. Brain trauma is often overlooked or minimized by medical personnel. Moderate brain injury can occur without direct contact to the head and without loss of conciousness. Often the injured person may not be be aware of subtle signs and symptoms of brain injury. Often family members are most able to recognize changes in the injured person's behavior, mood, or personality, or that they are having difficulty with memory or articulating. Someone who has sustained a brain injury should be evaluated by appropriate medical specialist as soon as possible so that their condition can be documented and treated effectively. As part of my practice in appropriate cases I question the injured person and their family about any changes to mental functioning that might not be obvious.
