LegalView Reports on Rare Traumatic Brain Injury Condition That Could Cause Complete Paralysis of A Victim
Date:10/30/2008

LegalView recently used its traumatic brain injury blog to report of a severely debilitating condition that can be derived from a brain injury and may cause complete paralysis of a patient. The condition is known as locked-in syndrome, and while it is rare, there is no cure available for current and future victims.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 30, 2008 -- LegalView, the number one legal resource available on the Internet, informed its brain injury information blog readers of a severely debilitating condition that has been linked to brain injuries. The condition, known as locked-in syndrome, also called Cerebromedullospinal Disconnection, is considered a rare disease that occurs when the pontine vessels hemorrhage or die, which may caused by a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unfortunately, there are no known cures for the condition, which causes every muscle in the body to become paralyzed accept for eye movement. Individuals who have suffered from a brain injury should seek medical treatment immediately to avoid the development of such a condition. It is also advisable to locate an experienced traumatic brain injury law firm who can locate a number of brain injury lawyers that can assist in developing potential litigation, which may retrieve monetary compensation for a TBI victim.

There are three classifications of locked-in syndrome, including classic, incomplete, and total. Victims of the condition become quadriplegic and are unable to move their lower face, chew, swallow, speak, breath, move body parts/limbs or move eyes laterally, according to news articles. However, patients are cognitively aware of their surroundings, follow normal sleep cycles and can hear and see. Suffering from a traumatic brain injury disorder can be extremely difficult because of the brain injury symptoms. It is imperative that individuals seek medical attention and possible legal consultation for their injuries. Discussing a potential brain injury lawsuit with a qualified personal injury attorney may offer relief to a brain injured victim and their friends and family.

In addition to a full library of resources for traumatic brain injury patients, LegalView also hosts a number of information portals for victims of other conditions and medical ailments such as the latest scares involving type 2 diabetes medications including Avandia and Byetta, or the most recent treatments being studied for mesothelioma patients.

Both Avandia and Byetta are anti-diabetic prescription drugs that have recently been the subject of investigations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for serious side effects caused by the drugs. Avandia, from GlaxoSmithKline, has been linked to a list of side effects with the most critical dangers including early on-set osteoporosis and heart failure/disease among Avandia patients. Byetta, also known as exenatide, is manufactured by Amilyn Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly and has been causing pancreatic conditions among patients who use the drug, which is given via an injectable pen. According to reports received by the FDA, patients began to be hospitalized for the development of acute pancreatitis only two years after Byetta's approval. Neither Avandia nor Byetta have been recalled, but patients who currently take either drug are encouraged to speak with their medical professional about switching medications. Additionally, it may be important to locate an Avandia lawyer or an experienced Byetta attorney who can support victims of the drug's side effects with the development of a pharmaceutical-based lawsuit. For more information on the drugs, visit the LegalView informational site at http://www.LegalView.com/.

LegalView also continues to update its mesothelioma information portal regularly to provide victims of the damaging cancer with resources for the latest treatments, clinical trials as well as the most recent mesothelioma jury verdicts and how to locate a knowledgeable mesothelioma law firm. Mesothelioma is a rare but deadly form of cancer that is caused through the inhalation of asbestos fibers and dust. Once inhaled, the asbestos fibers begin to form cancerous cells on the lining of the lungs, however, because the condition remains dormant for nearly 20 to 30 years, treating the cancer becomes a difficult feat. It is important for victims of the disease or those who think they may have been exposed to asbestos to consult a medical professional immediately. The sooner the condition is diagnosed, the better the survival rate becomes for a mesothelioma victim.
