Traumatic brain injuries are broadly defined as any blow or trauma to the head resulting in a disruption of normal brain functions. Serious brain injury can be life-altering, involving a lengthy recovery, possible life-time medical care, and a significant financial burden. If you or someone you love suffered a brain injury because of the negligence of another, I can help you.
First, it is important to understand the severity of your injury, which can be categorized within one of the following levels of traumatic brain injury:
- Mild Traumatic Brain Injury – Involves a brief loss of consciousness. The injured person will feel dazed and confused, but brain scans will appear normal.
- Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury – Loss of consciousness can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, followed by days or weeks of confusion. The injured person will exhibit physical and cognitive symptoms for months, years, or even permanently.
- Severe Traumatic Brain Injury – The injured person may have penetrating wound, loss of motor functions, senses, emotions, and cognitive function. This level of brain injury is life threatening and permanent.
Recovery from a traumatic brain injury can be extensive, involving many forms of rehabilitation, including:
- 24/7 medical care
- Speech Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
Victims of traumatic brain injury are often unable to function as they did prior to their injury. Their disabilities prevent them from performing normal every day activities. They may not be able to work, engage with family members, drive, and/or enjoy recreational activities.
Their lives are forever changed, and these changes usually bring significant financial hardships. The lifetime cost for care of a traumatic brain injury can be astronomical.
