Brain Swelling May Be Life-Threatening
There are many conditions that can cause swelling in your brain. The Mayo Clinic explains that one of those conditions could be a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which is known to cause swelling in the brain.
The buildup of cerebrospinal fluid can also cause swelling, and such a condition may:
- Be life-threatening
- Cause pressure inside of your skull
- Cause secondary conditions such as seizures
- Cause cognitive dysfunction
- Produce symptoms that continue to recur weeks, months, or years after you suffer your injury
Healthline notes that swelling in the brain caused by trauma resulting in fluid build-up around the brain may also be referred to as cerebral edema.
The organization notes that symptoms of brain swelling and cerebral edema that you or your loved one may experience include:
- Brain damage
- Problems with your memory
- Changes in your mood
- Speech problems
- Headaches and dizziness
- Lack of coordination in your extremities
- Losing consciousness
Healthline says that you may develop these symptoms as the result of a TBI. Depending on the specific incident that caused you or your loved one to suffer such an injury, you may be owed compensation by one or more parties.
Hiring a Queens swelling of the brain lawyer will assist you in determining whether another party or parties are responsible for your injuries. Your lawyer will zealously fight on your behalf to obtain the maximum compensation that you are entitled to for the injuries and damages you have suffered.

The Effects of Brain Swelling Can Be Permanent
The journal Seminars in Neurology
notes that TBIs may account for as much as 50% of deaths resulting from brain swelling.
It adds that the effects of brain swelling may include:
- Neurological deterioration
- The swelling of your cells
- Intracranial pressure
As a result of brain swelling and fluid build-up, you could have severe and lasting injuries that affect your life and wellbeing. The effect of a brain injury and brain swelling could extend far beyond your period of recovery and adversely affect you for the rest of your life.
You May Be Entitled to Compensation for Your Losses
The effects of experiencing brain swelling can take a great toll on your health, but the effects may not be only physical.
Aside from the direct health consequences of brain swelling, you may:
- Be unable to work for a lengthy period of time because of your condition, and may not earn your normal income during this period
- Be unable to work ever again depending on the severity of your brain swelling
- Experience changes in your personality and way of life
- Be unable to perform the activities that you once enjoyed
- Be unable to relate to others as you once did because of the effects of your condition
Your lawyers will take stock of all of your losses and identify the parties responsible for causing those losses. They will then pursue fair and just compensation for you or your loved one based on the injuries you suffered and the damages sustained.
A Lawyer Will Help You Pursue Compensation
Whether you or a loved one suffered brain swelling, hiring a lawyer could be of great help. A lawyer will handle your pursuit of compensation, which will relieve you of responsibilities that could inflict stress and consume a substantial portion of your time that should be dedicated to your recovery.
Your lawyer will file an insurance claim and institute a lawsuit on your behalf. At certain stages, your lawyer will be involved in attempting to negotiate a settlement with insurance representatives to fairly compensate you.
