Personal Injury Lawsuits and Loss of Memory: Making Your Case Stronger By Steve Charpentier on January 08, 2015

An x-ray of a person's skullAt Charpentier Law Firm, P.A., we have helped countless injury victims in and around the Central Florida area receive just compensation following a major accident. Traumatic or severe accident victims should seek legal help from skilled attorneys to receive just compensation for injuries both physical and mental.

Major head trauma can lead to a brain injury or brain damage, and this can result in memory loss as well as other mental health and psychological problems. This is why all instances of brain damage and brain injury need to be taken seriously. The effects can literally last a lifetime, making it difficult to remember recent events as well as events that occurred in the past.

Causes of Memory Loss

Some of the most common injuries and incidents that lead to memory loss or memory problems include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Major falls
  • Workplace injuries (especially in construction and industrial sites)
  • Severe sports injuries
  • Injuries during military combat
  • Assaults/attacks
  • Deprivation of oxygen in the brain
  • Medical errors causing brain injury

Problems You May Face as a Result of Memory Loss

Memory loss can lead to a number of serious issues that affect you and your loved ones. If a case of major head injury or trauma leads to lapses in short-term memory, you may find basic tasks difficult, such as work duties and interacting with others during simple social gatherings and functions.

Sometimes the issue isn't problems with current memories and memorization but with remembering things that should be life-defining or important. This might be the names of your loved ones, or events you've held dear, and so forth. In these cases, losing these memories can lead to great difficulties for you and those that you love.

Medical Documentation Is Crucially Important

If you notice issues with memory loss following a serious accident of any kind, it's of the utmost importance that you speak with a medical professional in order to receive proper documentation about your problems. A doctor may recommend taking various brain scans in order to identify brain trauma. This can pinpoint regions of the brain that have been affected by an injury and that can potentially lead to problems with memory.

This medical documentation is key for proving liability and responsibility in a legal claim. Be sure to seek medical help as soon as you notice any kinds of issues affecting your memory or emotional state.
