What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury, also known as a “TBI” can be a life-altering event. A TBI is caused by any severe jolt or a hard blow to the head. It could also be a head injury that penetrates and disrupts healthy brain function.
Many things can cause a traumatic brain injury; a car accident, a fall, struck by/against events, non-motorized pedal cycles, work-related accidents. Anyone, of any age, can suffer a TBI.
A TBI can range from mild to severe.
Symptoms can include:
- A headache
- Trouble with memory
- Issues with attention and focus
- Mood changes
Professional & Personal Experience
I have personal experience with traumatic brain injuries. In 1996, a close family member of mine suffered a brain injury. The effects were life changing and permanent. Brain injuries impact the individual who suffered the damage as well as their family.
Brain injured people may need lifelong care and can have extensive medical bills. In this case, you need an attorney with the expertise to handle the intricacies of the situation.
Several years ago, I got a 3.1-million-dollar settlement for a brain injured client. You would seek out medical experts if you suffered a brain injury. You also need expert legal representation with an attorney who understands the complex seriousness of a TBI.
