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.
