COMMON RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
Traumatic brain injuries may lead to death or leave an individual with brain damage and need lifelong care and treatment.
The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are:
- Transportation-related accidents (including motor vehicle accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents)
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sports-related accidents
There are two main types of traumatic brain injuries that can lead to brain trauma: a closed head injury and a penetrating head injury. These injuries occur due to fracturing the skull, bruising, bleeding, swelling of the brain tissue.
Unfortunately, serious brain injuries can lead to a myriad of issues, including intellectual challenges and impairment of:
- motor and sensory function,
- sense of smell and taste
Types of treatment can vary depending on individual circumstances. But ultimately, rehabilitation can be extensive and may require multiple treatments, such as physical, speech, cognitive, occupational and neuropsychological therapies. In the most severe cases, these types of brain injuries may also require 24-hour nursing care.
The costs of these treatments can be a huge financial strain.
At Christopher Ligori & Associates, our traumatic brain injury attorneys understand the emotional and financial toll that a serious brain injury can cause on your life and the lives of those around you. We will fight hard for your rights so that you receive the compensation needed to cover medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering damages, as well as any other losses associated with your injuries caused by another person’s negligence or carelessness.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED A MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?
Also commonly referred to as a concussion, a mild traumatic brain injury can result from a car accident, a sports injury or a seemingly harmless fall. But, when in doubt: always seek prompt medical attention.
Most of the time, people who suffer from a mild traumatic brain injury feel slightly dizzy or experience a straining headache for a day or two but then fully recover. However, there is always a chance that you could develop internal bleeding or a blood clot – and that can be seriously threatening if not promptly diagnosed and treated.
So, it is critical to seek medical assistance if you experience any of the following mild traumatic brain injury symptoms:
- Loss of consciousness, even if only briefly
- Any experience of amnesia or loss of memory for the event (right after a crash or a fall)
- Dizziness or confusion
- Vomiting or nausea
Depending on your profile (age, symptoms, severity of your injuries), doctors may order some tests including neurological tests, CT scans or MRI scans.
Most people who sustain a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury are often back to normal in a week or so and almost always within a few months. But in some severe brain injury cases, victims can experience l long-term problems either from the concussion or from injury to surrounding soft tissues on the head.
The sooner someone is diagnosed, the better the chances for a good recovery.
Unfortunately, because a concussion affects the brain, the injured person may lack the clear judgment to make an informed decision. It is then important that their family or loved ones make sure they get help.
And if you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury due to some kind of accident, it is important to seek legal help right away. The sooner you speak with a lawyer, the better your chances of getting the compensation that you deserve.
