About Brain Injuries

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC  Oct. 22, 2012 12:31p

The importance of the human brain in everyday functioning should never be underestimated. Whenever a person suffers an injury to their head or skull, there is potential to suffer a brain injury which could potentially cause serious injury, permanent disability, paralysis or even death. The brain is an extremely sensitive organ that houses our memories and in essence, our own identity. When it is damaged, we could lose everything about who we are, or our ability to control our own bodies. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident that resulted in a serious brain injury, you should immediately contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney for legal guidance in understanding how you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.

Brain injuries are some of the most dangerous kinds of injuries due to the importance of the functions that the brain controls. An injury to the brain could result in something as minor as a temporary headache that goes away within a few hours as the brain repairs itself, or a severe injury in which the brain suffers catastrophic damage, potentially resulting in loss of movement, memory loss, paralysis, or damage to voluntary and involuntary bodily functions such as breathing, bladder control or physical movement or sensation.
