As the victim of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other financial and non-economic damages.
About Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury involves trauma to the head area caused by falls, hits, or objects piercing the brain. Harm to the brain has the potential to alter cells and impact functionality.
A traumatic brain injury can range in damage from mild to severe. In cases of mild traumatic brain injury, the symptoms will typically resemble a standard concussion; Headaches, nausea, and fatigue are all common signs. More severe traumatic brain injuries can result in an escalation of standard signs as well as more serious symptoms such as loss of consciousness, seizures, and confusion.
Long-Term Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury
With proper treatment, victims of traumatic brain injuries can recover and avoid sustaining any long-term health complications. However, victims who suffer from more severe brain injuries may suffer from the effects of that injury well after the initial symptoms subside. Severe brain injuries can leave victims with physical, cognitive, and emotional effects for months or years. In some cases, permanent damage can result. A brain injury victim may require medical support and assistance with tasks for an extended period of time following their injury.
Brain injury victims may also sustain damages related to limitations caused by their injury. For example, a brain injury victim may be unable to return to their former job following a traumatic brain injury, resulting in lost wages and non-economic pain and suffering damages caused by a loss of purpose and limited opportunities. Additionally, a person may require occupational training to learn new skills or relearn previously held knowledge. The damages caused by a traumatic brain injury are more extensive than the physical impact and medical costs, and have the potential to affect every part of a victim’s life.
