Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) include diffuse axonal injuries (common with shaken baby syndrome), contusions, penetrating injuries, open head injuries and skull fractures, and the most common type of head injury, concussions. Any type of brain injury can lead to long-term negative health effects, and victims of TBIs often require additional medical care and rehabilitation.
TBIs can be caused by a number of things, including automobile accidents, sporting events, falling objects, worksite accidents, slip-and-falls, and more.
If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI after an incident caused by someone else's negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation to cover your medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disfigurement.
Consult with a brain injury attorney who has experience handling personal injuries to learn more about whether you might have a case as soon as possible.
The Long-Lasting Concerns Associated With TBIs
Due to increasing research on the long-lasting consequences of brain injuries, both healthcare providers and traumatic brain injury lawyers understand the seriousness of head trauma and are urging victims of accidents to seek appropriate treatment.
People who have suffered TBIs might struggle to perform basic everyday tasks, such as caring for themselves, and may no longer be able to enjoy an active lifestyle. They might be prevented from participating in work, school, and physical activities for several weeks, and focusing on tasks or planning ahead can become increasingly difficult. While most people recover from a concussion or a mild brain injury after a few weeks, they need that time to heal, or they risk further injury, which can even be fatal.
Survivors of head injuries frequently suffer headaches, forgetfulness, anxiety, disorientation, memory issues, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, sleeplessness, sensitivity to noise and light, balance problems, fatigue, and even emotional instability or increased irritability. Some victims develop seizures.
