LegalView Reports Details of War Veteran Brain Injuries Overlooked By Officials for Years
September 02, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDenver, CO - LegalView recently reported on the plight of one American war veteran whose severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) during combat have led to a life of pain including continual memory loss, nightmares, inability to sleep, hearing and visual impairments as well as confusion/inability to understand directions. The soldier, just one example of the millions of returning veterans suffering from TBI, had been the victim of several concussions during the war. Because he never took leave from the military for the injuries or was officially treated, the U.S. military has denied him a Purple Heart because of his "improperly recognized" injuries, according to an article from The New York Times.
Victims of TBI are advised to seek medical attention as well as legal assistance from an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney who can potentially assist in recovering monetary damages with a possible traumatic brain injury lawsuit .
Some of the most common traumatic brain injury symptoms include social and behavioral changes such as depression/mood swings, fatigue, hearing and visual changes, seizures, loss of coordination as well as comma or death.
Victims of TBI should seek legal counsel from a knowledgeable traumatic brain injury law firm . Additionally, LegalView provides an extensive catalog of other legal issues afflicting millions of Americans including those suffering from truck accidents as well as victims of the Levaquin and Cipro pharmaceutical side effects.
Each year, thousands, if not millions, of Americans are involved in automobile accidents. Most recently, researchers reported that the most expensive and fatal vehicular accidents involve trucks. Victims of a truck accident should seek legal consultation to better understand how to protect themselves and potentially develop a truck accident lawsuit .
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also been reporting on another increasing risk that may affect millions of patients in the United States. The FDA informed individuals that the fluoroquinolone drug family, consisting of Levaquin and Cipro, have been found to cause a severe and life-long risk to patients. Levaquin (levofloxacin), which commonly treats bacterial infections such as pneumonia, skin infections, urinary tract infections and E. Coli, was recently approved for use by children, although a number of studies have described the severity of the Levaquin risks .
Additionally, Cipro (ciprofloxacin) from Bayer A.G. was released for public use in August 2000, and while it has had several studies conducted on its side effects, which include the Achilles tendonitis and tendon tear, remains on the market. Both drugs have received the harshest FDA labeling but millions of patients may still be at risk for the drug's side effects. To learn more about the dangers contact an experienced pharmaceutical lawyer who can provide details on a Cipro class action lawsuit .
