TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
Brain injuries have lifelong consequences
After suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you face a long, arduous road to recovery. In fact, you may never be able to return completely to the life you knew. If your injury is the result of someone else’s reckless actions or negligence, you may be eligible for compensation to alleviate the challenges you now face.
According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 5.3 million Americans are suffering from traumatic brain injuries. While death is a common result of a TBI, there are other non-fatal lifelong repercussions that could hamper your life or that of a loved one. Those include:
- Psychological impairments. Your emotions are just one of the functions of your brain. A damaged brain could lead to psychological illnesses such as depression, anxiety, and shifts in personality.
- Cognitive impairments. Something you may have enjoyed, such as reading, may now be a frustrating chore. Traumatic brain injuries can impair your ability to pay attention to the words your reading or even recall what they mean.
- Motor function impairments. Simple actions such as pressing a button on an elevator door may become a difficult task with an injury depriving you of the simple motor skills of your brain.
- Sensory impairment. The brain is the central process for a network of nerves that feed your senses, and if it is damaged, so are they. This could mean a loss of vision, hearing or even your ability to register a hot surface with your fingertips.
