Suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can disrupt every aspect of your life. TBI is a major cause of death and disability in the United States, with TBI contributing to approximately 30 percent of all injury-related deaths. TBI survivors often face an uphill battle when it comes to recovery, as effects may last a few days or linger for the rest of their lives – and these issues impact not only individuals with TBI, but their families and communities as well.
TBI refers to damage to the brain caused by an external physical force such as a car accident or a fall that may be the result of someone else’s negligence. Symptoms initially associated with TBI include severe headaches, fatigue, vomiting, loss of memory, and difficulty moving an arm or leg. Mild TBI is commonly called a concussion and may cause no lasting damage, but according to the Mayo Clinic, in more severe caseseffects may include:
- Loss of consciousness from several minutes to hours
- Persistent or worsening headache
- Repeated vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- Dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes
- Clear fluids draining from the nose or ears
- Inability to awaken from sleep or coma
- Weakness or numbness in fingers and toes
- Loss of coordination
- Profound confusion
- Agitation, combativeness, or other personality changes
Oftentimes determining who is at fault for your TBI can be challenging, but if your injury was caused by the carelessness or recklessness of another individual, you may be entitled to damages. Recovering from an accident is hard enough without having to navigate a complex and potentially overwhelming legal landscape, especially when insurance companies are involved. Knowing your rights and having an experienced attorney on your side can help ensure the best possible financial outcome for you and your family while you focus on more important things like healing, recuperating, and getting your life back to normal.
