As the focus of the central nervous system, the brain is the most important organ in the body. As such, it is protected by the skull, one of the most solid sets of bones. The brain is composed of a soft, jelly-like substance and, when the head is given a hard jolt, is still susceptible to injury. The brain serves two primary functions: to receive information from the body about what it needs, and to send electrical impulses out to the body. In this way, the brain controls the rest of the body. The brain is divided into four major lobes: frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal. Each lobe has a different role.
What Is The Parietal Lobe?
The parietal lobe is part of the brain that is located behind the frontal lobe, and above the temporal and occipital lobes. The parietal lobe interprets sensory information that the brain receives from the body. With parietal lobe injury, as with any brain injury, immediate emergency medical care is of the utmost importance, but you also need to consult a brain injury lawyer to understand your options.
What Effects Does Parietal Lobe Injury Have?
Because the parietal lobe integrates visual input with other sensory information, it can affect the body’s ability to carry out many physical tasks. The patient may lose the ability to tell left from right, hand-eye coordination will suffer, and the patient will experience difficulty with body awareness. This can affect the ability to regulate the pressure with which we touch or hold things, the ability to feel hot and cold, or the ability to determine size, shape or color. Additionally, patients may have trouble remembering the names of things, and may struggle with reading and writing, or math.
How Can An Attorney Help?
Parietal lobe injury symptoms can take some time to present so insurance companies may be hesitant to pay claims. An attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure that you continue to get the care that you need.
Negligence can be very difficult to evaluate in accidents, and an injury that may not appear until later, or that has such permanent and drastic effects complicates the matter. A brain injury lawyer can evaluate your accident, and decide whether you have a legal claim. If you do, he or she can aggressively pursue the legal case for you.
An attorney can help you file claims for worker’s compensation or disability as appropriate, and help ensure that you present and future medical and financial needs are met.
