When someone suffers a traumatic brain injury, he or she can face a slew of symptoms. A common one that many people face is seizures. In fact, according to the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center, when a brain injury sends someone to the hospital, that person has a 10% chance of suffering a seizure during his or her recovery.
After An Injury, Seizures Can Occur Any Time
When an accident results in a traumatic brain injury, all of the effects may not be apparent right away. Regardless of whether a seizure occurs weeks, months or even years after an injury, it can be a terrifying experience for those who experience and witness them. Symptoms can be wide-ranging but often involve convulsions, paralysis and dizziness. While medications are often successful in treating people who suffer seizures resulting from a brain injury, not everyone will benefit from them.
How Seizures Can Impact Your Life
Being prone to having seizures can affect your life in many different ways. Because it is sometimes impossible to know when a seizure will strike, holding a steady job can be difficult to say the least. In addition, the costs of medication and frequent doctor and hospital visits can add up quickly. At Ronald W. Ramirez, Attorney at Law, we know that your ability to pay your bills and support your family is extremely important. That is why we have dedicated our Manhattan and Queens law practice to advocating for victims of brain injuries.
