Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Types of Brain Injuries
- Skull Fracture
Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
Not all traumatic brain injuries are of equal severity, but even a TBI categorized as “mild” TBI (also known as a concussion) can have lingering symptoms that cause unexpected and debilitating consequences. People may find themselves having trouble remembering things, experiencing mood changes, noticing vision impairments, and facing other symptoms that can interfere with their ability to perform their jobs and take care of other responsibilities.
Because the brain is the control center for the entire body, TBI can affect any part of the body. These injuries can cause complications including:
- Decreased cognitive skills
- Difficulty with communication & language
- Trouble sleeping
- Hearing impairments
- Vision problems
- Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
- Changes to behavior
- Mental health conditions like depression and anxiety
Approximately 30% of those who suffer moderate or severe TBI will need some sort of daily assistance even after rehabilitative therapy. Many TBI patients are able to live on their own, but for some, assisted care homes or live-in caretakers are essential. These are among the considerations a TBI patient and their family must consider when looking to the future.
Working with Our Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
Aside from the emotional challenges of suffering or seeing a loved one suffer a TBI, injury victims must deal with the financial demands of treatment and the impact of not being able to work as effectively as they used to—or at all. Aside from the immediate costs of emergency care and expenses related to long-term therapies, TBI victims are more likely to suffer complications that include:
- Degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s
The amount of compensation you seek you receive must account for current and future needs, including losses related to the victim’s inability to continue working or performing household services and their loss of enjoyment of life.
