Why Do Car Accident Injuries Appear in a Delayed Manner?

Published on Mar 16, 2017 at 5:49 pm in Car Accidents.

Car accidents are traumatic experiences.  They can leave lingering physical and emotional damage.  Many car accident injures do not display symptoms right away.  What seems like minor or mild pain initially can develop into severe and debilitating pain over the next few weeks.

Everyone reacts to stress differently.  Some experience mental fog, some severe shock, and some a rush of adrenaline.  This can make it difficult to determine your injuries immediately following an accident.

The initial shock of the accident causes your body to produce endorphins, the brain’s natural coping mechanism when experiencing trauma and sensory overload.  Endorphins mask pain and other symptoms of injury.  In the days following the accident, the brain stops producing endorphins and medical concerns that were hidden before begin to appear and cause problems.

The Hidden Dangers of Concussions

Published on Mar 10, 2017 at 9:35 pm in Personal Injury.

We’re often told that injuries “come with the territory” of participating in team sports. Players commonly walk away from games with scrapes, cuts, bruises, broken bones, sprains, and even short-lived head injuries like concussions. Concussions, technically speaking, are usually caused by minor head trauma that can seem rather undramatic at the time. Most concussion victims recover within minutes or even right away.

As a result, most coaches, nurses, doctors, and other sport medicine professionals in Atlanta, Georgia and elsewhere have treated concussions like they had no lasting effects. New research suggests differently, however. It’s reported that as many as 3.8 million concussions happen every year between all levels of sport. In some of these cases, doctors are finding out that the accumulation of concussions—even when they’re undramatic—can lead to traumatic brain injury and even brain disease.

Facts You May Not Know About Birth Injuries

Published on Mar 8, 2017 at 7:48 pm in Birth Injury.

Birth injuries are the result of damage to the tissues and organs of a newly delivered child and are often caused by physical pressure or trauma during childbirth.  There are several types of birth injuries.  There are brain-related injuries, muscle-related or physical injuries, injuries from infection during pregnancy, and injuries that occur during delivery.  The side effects of birth injuries can be temporary or permanent and vary in degree of severity depending on each child’s individual circumstances.

Brain-related birth injuries are often a result of a lack of oxygen in the brain.  The leading brain-related injury in relation to birth trauma is cerebral palsy.  Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that is caused by a non-progressive brain injury or malformation that occurs when the child’s brain is under development.  Cerebral palsy can develop after maternal infections, oxygen deprivation, infant stroke, and infant infection.  There is currently no cure for cerebral palsy.  In many cases, cerebral palsy could have been prevented with proper medical care.

Work Injury Claims Denied

If you have been involved in a work-related accident and suffered an injury, you deserve to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

Often an employee will become injured on-the-job and will try to obtain benefits without consulting a skilled Work Injury Lawyer, when this occurs more often than not, their claims will be denied.

Here are the top reasons for a Workers’ Compensation Claim to be denied:

Late Notice of Injury
It is a requirement to provide your employer with a notice promptly of the injuries that you have received from a work-related accident. What is “timely” can vary, which is why it is important to have an attorney on your side who knows all the important deadlines. If the injury is not reported when it needs to be, your claim will more than likely be denied.
