Have You Suffered a Head Injury?
Have you or a loved one been the victim of a Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI?
This is no minor matter. Due to the sensitivity of brain injuries, it’s imperative to seek medical attention right away first and foremost. This type of catastrophic injury often results in life-long impairment or death, especially if it is not treated immediately.
Whether as the result of a car accident, act of violence such as assault, or a slip and fall, you need someone on your side to get you the restitution you deserve.
Don’t count on insurance companies to help cover the cost. They won’t. The typical insurance model they follow is to offer as little as possible for payouts, which is only enough to just barely cover your immediate medical bills. However, when it comes to brain injuries, the doctor appointments and procedures can go on for many years, not to mention the costly nature of brain surgery, therapy and medication.
Turn to Kuzyk Law, your Lancaster brain injury attorneys, for help when it seems you’re all on your own. We’ll fight to get you the maximum compensation for full damages, physical therapy, medical and surgical bills, ongoing pain and suffering, and lost wages.
“You have always been great; I really appreciate all of you.” – Jean M., Lancaster
Brain Injuries: A Serious Matter
TBI is a major cause of death and disability in the United States, accounting for 30% of all injury deaths, according to the CDC. Such injuries can be caused by anything from sports and workplace accidents to falls and violent acts.
In a large city like Lancaster, home to 168,000 people, the potential for brain injury is high. There are countless outdoor recreational activities to take part in and around this city. Violent acts and auto accidents are on the rise as the population grows, revealing even more of a potential for injury.
If you or a loved one falls victim to a brain injury, seek medical attention right away. Even if you think that bump you sustained is no big deal and that you feel just fine, you could be gambling with your life. People who claim to feel fine immediately after head trauma have been known to die just hours later due to brain hemorrhage.

Symptoms of traumatic brain injury range from mild to severe. According to NIH, symptoms of mild TBI include headache, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue, a change in sleep patterns, behavioral or mood changes, and trouble with memory and concentration. A person with a moderate or severe TBI may also display these symptoms, but with accompanying symptoms such as:
- Worsening headaches
- Convulsions or seizures
- Trouble waking up from sleep
- Dilation of the pupils
- Slurred speech
- Weakness in the extremities
- Increased confusion
Unfortunately, brain injury symptoms get worse if not quickly treated. Take all symptoms seriously, particularly if you are feeling confused, lightheaded, unbalanced or irritable, lost consciousness, vomited, or had a seizure. Even a throbbing headache that won’t quit or a severe cut to your head warrants medical attention. Once you’ve done that, call your trusted personal injury lawyer: Kuzyk Law.
