The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the leading causes of TBI are:
If a brain injury is mild, it is usually referred to as a concussion. Headaches, dizziness and/or short-term disruption of concentration, memory, judgment and physical coordination are signs of a concussion. A concussion may or may not cause a short loss of consciousness.
Some people develop post-concussion syndrome after a mild TBI. The condition may be diagnosed if symptoms do not subside after several weeks. Post-concussion syndrome may last for months or a year or more.
Additionally, a person who has suffered a concussion is more susceptible to future TBIs, which may have a cumulative damaging effect. For example, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive brain disease that is linked to repetitive brain trauma, especially among football players and other athletes.
Severe TBI may cause varying levels of:
Serious brain injury can be costly. Medical expenses can include emergency response and hospitalization. This treatment is typically followed by physical rehabilitation, psychological therapy and, perhaps, vocational therapy.
The most severe TBI cases result in permanent disability. A victim may need assistive devices like a walker or wheelchair. A disabled TBI victim may require modifications to his or her home to make it livable and could need ongoing personal assistance with tasks such as feeding, bathing and grooming.
A severe TBI victim may be unable to earn a living or enjoy life as he or she did before the injury. It is not unusual for a person with severe TBI to develop degenerative brain disease that eventually causes premature death.
Anyone who suffers a severe head injury as the result of the reckless or negligent actions of another party may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit. Whether you have sustained TBI in an auto accident, slip-and-fall accident, workplace accident or as the result of a defective or unsafe product, you can bring a claim against the responsible party or parties.
