TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

What you Need to Know About Brain Injuries

Brain Injuries

Approximately 1.7 million individuals sustain a traumatic brain injury - also called a TBI - on an annual basis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This statistic is only based on individuals who seek treatment in an emergency room or hospital, therefore, the number of TBI victims may actually be much higher.

Many TBI patients require extensive medical treatment and can face numerous challenges and limitations in their lives. At Brain Injury Counsel, we understand the many effects a TBI can have and we are committed to helping brain injury victims recover financially for their losses.

Types and Effects of TBI

Traumatic brain injuries are generally categorized as mild, moderate, or severe. A common example of a mild TBI is a concussion, which can result from even the slightest bump to the head. There are many other types of brain injuries including open or closed injuries, contusions, anoxic events (injuries from lack of oxygen), and more.

The specific effects of a TBI will depend on the type of injury that occurred, the severity of the damage, the location of the injury, whether the injury was treated in a timely manner, and other factors. Some common effects of a TBI can include the following:

  • Problems with cognitive functioning, including comprehension, information processing, and communication;
  • Physical challenges with balance, coordination, and sensory abilities; and
  • Lack of emotional control resulting in anger, depression or emotional inappropriateness.

As you can imagine, these effects can have a significant impact on a patient's life and may affect their success in educational, professional, or social settings.

Brain Injuries Can Occur In a Variety Of Ways

Just like there are many types of brain injuries, there are also many different ways that TBIs can happen. Some of the most common causes of brain injuries include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents;
  • Trucking accidents;
  • Bicycles;
  • Scooters;
  • Falls;
  • Premises defects;
  • Exposure to toxic substances;
  • Violence and assaults;
  • Birth injuries;
  • Medical malpractice; and
  • Sports injuries.

Learn About Your Legal Rights As a Brain Injury Patient

Many brain injuries occur in accidents caused by another person's negligent or intentional acts. In such cases, patients of TBI are legally entitled to financial compensation for their losses resulting from their injury. Patients can seek compensation by filing an insurance claim or by pursuing a lawsuit against the responsible party for personal injury. Brain injury cases can be complex and often involve technical and detailed medical information and investigation. It is therefore important to make sure an attorney has specific knowledge and understanding of the nature of brain injuries, the effects of this type of injury, and the extent of the losses that may occur.
