What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to a person’s brain that results from a violent jolt or blow to the head, neck, or body. TBIs range in severity, from milder brain injuries like concussions to bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications or even death and may involve:
- Brain contusion
- Diffuse axonal injury (often seen with Shaken Baby Syndrome)
- Brian hemorrhaging
- Brain laceration
- Coup-Countercoup injury
- An object penetrating the skull
What Are Common Causes of TBIs?
TBIs can result from a wide range of physical blows to an individual. Common causes of TBIs include, but are not limited to:
- Car accidents
- Physical assault
- Medical malpractice
- Sports impacts
If someone else was the cause of your brain injury, you and your family need experienced legal counsel to hold the liable parties accountable.
How Can TBIs Affect a Victim’s Life?
Brain injuries are complex and no two are the same. The ways they often change the lives of those who receive them are numerous and are still being researched and studied to this day. While a mild brain injury may require a few days of supervision from medical professionals, along with rest, a major brain injury can result in a lifelong struggle for victims. Many have trouble learning and comprehending new information, making decisions, or communicating with friends and family members. Along with the physical and mental toll of the injury, victims may encounter trouble sleeping, a lost sense of taste and smell, or suffer from vision and balance problems for the remainder of their lives.
If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI due to the negligent or violent conduct of another, you may be entitled to compensation for these types of issues and others:
- Pain and suffering
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of companionship
- Therapy of various forms
- Emotional distress
