A head injury is a common injury for many people. It can happen in a car accident, while playing sports, or another type of crash. Difficulty speaking, understanding and communication following a crash can be scary and frustrating for an accident victim. Time alone does heal some types of head injuries. Other conditions require treatment. And some people never recover from such injuries.
If you or someone you know has suffered a head injury, or has aphasia due to trauma that was caused by negligence, there may be a claim. An attorney can explain the process of bringing a claim and assess whether the injury may entitle you to compensation.
