The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. Unlike most other organs, it cannot heal itself by regenerating new cells. As such, injuries to the brain are extraordinarily complex and serious. They require immediate medical treatment, irrespective of whether the injury is a severe brain injury or a mild brain injury. Severe brain injuries may result in severe cognitive issues; behavioral issues; physical disability; paralysis; and even death. Mild brain injuries may lead to permanent cognitive and behavioral issues, which can result in devastating long-term consequences for the victim and his or her family.

For instance, a concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to the head or a violent shaking of the head. Concussions can be dangerous. Indeed, a second concussion can lead to death if it occurs before the victim’s first concussion has fully healed. Even a seemingly mild concussion, may result in post-concussion syndrome. Post-concussion syndrome results when concussion symptoms show up days or weeks after an injury to the head. Symptoms often take several days or even weeks to manifest and may last for up to a year or more. Sometimes the symptoms are subtle. As a result, you must seek immediate medical attention if you suffer from any of the following symptoms following an injury to the head:

  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep Difficulties (insomnia or excessive sleeping)
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Behavioral changes
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Memory Loss
  • Light sensitivity
  • Headaches

Whether mild or severe, brain injuries can result in catastrophic damages. Brain injuries are traumatic and life-changing. Recovery is often difficult, uncertain, and time-consuming. Brain injuries can be emotionally, physically, and financially overwhelming. Many brain injury victims require ongoing medical treatment and procedures, which place strains and stresses on victims and their families for extended periods of time.


If you have suffered a brain injury, contact a Utah brain injury lawyer immediately to protect your rights. Time matters. Insurance companies know you are in a vulnerable position and often seek to take advantage of that fact. They may attempt to interview you to secure admissions helpful to their case or they may persuade you accept a quick, lowball settlement offer before you are able to retain an attorney. An experienced Utah personal injury attorney will protect you against these insurance company tactics, among many others, and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
