Consequences of a Brain Injury

A brain injury is among the worst types of injuries a person can suffer. Part of the reason is that it is incredibly difficult to predict just what a brain injury will do as time passes. What might first seem to be a subtle injury can begin to manifest intense and life-changing symptoms as the injury worsens. When creating your brain injury claim, it is important to keep in mind how your life could be affected by the injury years later, rather than only focusing on what has already changed.

A brain injury can cause many symptoms and disabilities, such as:

Any one of these symptoms can be considered serious, and they all might be permanent from the moment of the accident. The nerves and cells in the brain are slow to heal or cannot heal completely, no matter how much time and treatment are given to the injured patient. As such, most brain injuries are considered permanent.

Is a Concussion a Brain Injury?

Concussions are often categorized as a “mild” traumatic brain injury, which can seem like a paradox. In many ways, it is because a single concussion can be enough to change a person’s life forever, depending on what part of the brain has been damaged.

Out of all the possible brain injuries, concussions are among the most common. They are caused when the brain hits the inner wall of the skull, which can happen in even mild impacts. For example, low-speed car accidents and high-impact sports like football are two common causes of concussions.

What Damages are Available in a TBI Claim?

The way your life changes after suffering a TBI can be dramatic. You might have to make huge adjustments in your day-to-day life due to new disabilities caused by the injury. While deciding a fair value for your claim, our lawyers will consider these factors, as well as the more tangible fiscal impacts.

Damages that can add to the value of your TBI claim include:
