Devastating Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Published on May 18th, 2019

A loved one suffered a severe traumatic brain injury in a motor vehicle collision, what can we do?

The first step for anyone suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), whatever the cause, is to seek immediate medical assistance. Symptoms of TBI’s include, but are not limited to, headaches, dizziness, amnesia, sensitivity to light (photophobia), sensitivity to sound (phonophobia), irritability, decreased concentration, depression, impulse control problems, attention deficit disorder, and a host of other complications. Physicians can perform appropriate diagnostic testing, prescribe medications aimed at relieving the symptoms of a TBI, and place patients in appropriate therapy programs aimed at returning them to their pre-accident state of mental health.

For those that suffer TBI’s in the context of motor vehicle accidents, trucking collisions, motorcycle collisions, construction accidents, or otherwise, contacting a lawyer is a vital next step. TBI’s can have devastating, life long impacts upon injury victims. Decreased cognition, focus, and depressed mood are but a few symptoms that can prevent TBI sufferers from returning to their jobs and normal lives. A personal injury attorney can help these individuals gain compensation from at-fault parties for lost wages, impaired earning capacity, lost benefits, and all other economic loss associated with a TBI. Additionally, injury attorneys can help compensate the pain, suffering, impaired social and family relationships, and other non-economic losses that occur with TBI victims.
