A traumatic brain injury can be suffered following trauma to the head and result from either an open or closed wound.
At McMillan Williams, we regularly deal with brain injury cases whether minor, moderate or severe. Our work in this area means that we regularly work with many of the leading consultants and health professionals in this area.
In severe brain injury cases the symptoms and impairments will become obvious early on after the traumatic incident. In minor or moderate cases, it may not be for several months before they “surface”. If orthopaedic injuries have been suffered, the hospital staff will inevitably focus attention on treating the orthopaedic injuries. Pain relieving medication may also be administered which will impact on a patient’s level of consciousness and awareness.
