Risks Associated with Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries may lead to death or leave an individual with brain damage and in need of lifelong care and treatment. The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are:
- Transportation-related accidents (including auto, bicycle, motorcycle, and pedestrian)
- Sports-related accidents
There are two main types of head injuries that can lead to damage within the brain: closed head injuries and penetrating head injuries. These injuries occur due to fracturing of the skull, bruising, bleeding, swelling or tearing of the tissues making up the brain and those areas surrounding it.
Type of treatment can vary depending on individual circumstances. Brain injuries can lead to impairment of motor and sensory function, coordination, speech, hearing, vision, sense of smell and taste, as well as personality/intellectual changes.
Ultimately, rehabilitation can be extensive and may require the use of multiple treatments, such as physical, speech, cognitive, occupational and neuropsychological therapies. In the most severe cases, these types of brain injuries may also require the need for 24-hour nursing care. The costs of these treatments can be quite substantial over a long period of time.
Get Help from Tampa Brain Injury Lawyers
If you or your loved one has suffered from a brain injury, this is not acceptable. Head injury survivors and their families may be entitled to extremely high compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, and compensation for emotional distress, physical pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. Without help, you may be forced to attempt to pay off the balance of these debts on your own, for the rest of your life.
