Traumatic Brain Injuries
Suffering from a traumatic brain injury is a shock that nobody wants to experience, but unfortunately brain injuries do happen and they can seriously affect every aspect of a person’s life. The severity of a brain injury can range from mild to severe. In many cases the person suffering from the injury may be unable to earn a living as they did before the injury, if at all.
This is why a victim may consider the possibility of seeking compensation if a brain injury does happen as a result of someone else’s negligence.
It is important to notice the signs of a brain injury, which may include physical impairments, mental changes and personality changes. Sometimes injuries to the brain can be missed and left untreated. Be aware of some of the symptoms:
- memory loss
- confusion and disorientation
- blurry vision
- poor attention/concentration
Brain injuries can cause ongoing challenges and disabilities, affecting the victim for life. Those challenges will require seeking mental and physical health care from numerous providers, which can make getting proper treatment difficult and expensive.
When medical costs are added to the loss of income, the effect is financially devastating. That impact might be more than a family can handle since. Dealing with the financial stress occurs at the same time spouses, siblings, parents and children are learning to live in a new way and support the person with the injury.
