Be Prepared if You or a Loved One Sustains a Head Injury
Every day we put ourselves in potentially dangerous situations. Whether we are having in- or out-patient medical procedures, at work, driving in our cars, riding our bikes, playing sports, or even enjoying family time in our own home. None of us plans on these occurrences, but we do need to be prepared in case accidents happen. Unfortunately, incurring a head injury can be one of the most serious and common injuries.
There a few things you need to prepare for in case of unexpected accidents.
- Have a list of local hospitals, doctors, ambulances, fire and police department numbers available.
- Create a list of close relatives to contact with phone numbers.
- Choose a legal representative that is qualified to help you, should the situation warrant legal representation.
What to do in the Case of a Head Injury:
Head injuries can be especially serious. No matter how the injury occurs, head injuries cause extensive bleeding. The injured may be incoherent or experience memory loss. Brain hemorrhaging and other severe issues aren’t apparent, but can occur—only to be determined after MRI’s, CAT scans and other procedures are conducted.
The most important step is immediately getting proper medical care, but getting reliable legal representation should be secured as soon as possible, so interviews can be conducted before key evidence is forgotten or misrepresented.
Choosing the Right Representation:
