The city of Boise, Idaho, is teeming with people who are going about their business and not always paying as much attention to their surroundings as they should be. Unfortunately, these distractions and negligent behavior sometimes result in accidents and personal injuries.

Some of these accidents can lead to a head injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can change your life forever. Many people associate brain injuries with car accidents, but not all brain injuries are caused by auto crashes. For example, a number of brain injuries result from slip-and-fall accidents every year.

No matter how your brain injury was caused, seeking compensation with the help of a Boise brain injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can make a significant difference in managing your injuries now and in the future.


Recognizing Brain Injuries After an Accident

Because the statute of limitations on injuries in Idaho allows just two years in which to file suit, it’s crucial that you get diagnosed as soon as possible. Unfortunately, brain injuries are not always obvious or easy to recognize, especially if the skull is not damaged or you did not lose consciousness in front of someone.

It’s entirely possible to suffer a concussion or head injury and think you are okay after an accident. Some of the signs of brain injuries that you should look for after an accident include the following:

  • Headaches
  • Impaired vision
  • Impaired cognitive function
  • Change in speech
  • Loss of motor control
  • Sudden and unexplained mood swings
  • Changes to sleeping patterns

Although some of these symptoms might seem negligible, all of these signs can indicate a serious head injury. Your Boise brain injury lawyer will help you pursue the compensation you will need to pay for your recovery.


Paying for a Brain Injury

While Boise medical professionals will assess and treat your injury—whether it’s a traumatic brain injury, concussion, or a head injury of some other sort—they will require payment. If you didn’t cause the accident that inflicted your injury, it shouldn’t be you paying the bill. A Boise brain injury lawyer from our firm will work with the medical providers to ensure you receive the treatment you need while your case is waiting to be settled.
