WE’RE HERE TO HELP

Traumatic Brain Injury

Everyday tasks become difficult or impossible; communication, mobility, and sensory processing become seriously diminished, or the victim may wind up in a persistent vegetative state, unresponsive condition, or coma. The life that existed before the accident is no more, and brain injury patients may require long-term care and continuing therapy that strains the emotional and financial resources of those caring for them.

WHY CHAPMAN INJURY LAWYERS?

Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a catastrophic type of brain damage caused by an external force striking the head, whether from the skull making impact with the ground or an object piercing the cranial plate to penetrate the brain. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that at least 1.7 million Americans suffer a TBI each year.

These catastrophic injuries can be caused by a number of things, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Assaults
  • Work and construction injuries
  • Boating accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Slips and falls

Some of the more severe TBI symptoms include paralysis, impaired speech, loss of motor skills, coma, personality disorder, and compromised reasoning ability.
Symptoms of a Possible Brain Injury

Not all brain injuries make themselves known immediately. Sometimes, symptoms of a serious brain injury take a while before they develop, but can be signs of and lead to the same devastation. Some symptoms include:
Mild to moderate

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision or tired eyes
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • A change in sleep patterns
  • Behavioral or mood changes
  • Trouble with memory
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Poor attention
  • Problems thinking

Moderate to serious

  • Worsening headache
  • Repeated vomiting or nausea
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • An inability to awaken from sleep
  • Dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes
  • Slurred speech
  • Weakness or numbness in the extremities
  • Loss of coordination
  • Increased confusion
  • Increased restlessness
  • Increased agitation

Compensation for Brain Injuries

It is hard to put a value on such things as the ability to communicate, take care of oneself, or have basic autonomy, and no amount of money can replace a fond memory. The loved ones of those dealing with TBI are left to struggle with the permanent changes to their lives caused by the injury. Expensive and complicated healthcare issues need to be addressed and life care plans have to be developed. Life can seem to revolve around the injury, which can create financial strain and shattered relationships.

Not every brain injury is the result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, and not every injury will result in a claim for compensation. But making those determinations on your own without consulting with an experienced brain injury lawyer may mean that you miss the opportunity to secure vital resources that can aid in recovery and bring the injury victim and their families much need peace of mind.
