Seeking the Compensation You Deserve
Humans are the most highly developed species on Earth—because of our brains. A person who has suffered a traumatic injury to the brain may be permanently altered because brain damage can affect personality, intellect, creativity, and memory. It is a devastating type of injury for the victim and the victim’s family.
In the United States, a TBI or traumatic brain injury occurs every fifteen seconds. Many are the result of car accidents, workplace accidents, and falls, and are the result of the negligent, careless, or reckless act of some individual, company, or other entity. The leading causes of TBI are motor vehicle accidents, falls, violent acts, and sports injuries. Around five million Americans are currently afflicted with these catastrophic injuries.
Injuries to the brain may cause two types of damage.
Primary brain damage occurs immediately upon impact, for example:
Secondary brain damage is the result of complications of the injury, which can lead to:
While open head injuries are readily observable, other brain injuries may not be immediately apparent.
The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:
A victim of a severe brain injury will often find it difficult or impossible to work in the same capacity as before the accident and often has a diminished ability to earn a living. Some victims are never able to return to work or live independently again. A brain injury is often a catastrophic event, and the victim will need a settlement sufficient to cover lost earnings and care for years to come, so selecting the right personal injury lawyer is essential.
