Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) can happen anywhere. A TBI is an injury to the brain caused by the head being hit by something or shaken violently. It can occur on the job site, on the playground, from a falling object, or in car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle or skiing accident. All it takes is one horrible moment in your life – or the life of a loved one – to be forever and traumatically changed. This injury can change how a person acts, moves, and thinks.
When most people picture traumatic brain injuries, or closed head injuries (CHI), they think of severely brain damaged people in a vegetative state. More common are mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBI), which cause a variety of symptoms. These injuries do not always present clear outward symptoms and are often difficult to prove. Some of the signs and symptoms of mild traumatic brain injuries include:
* Concussion * Loss of consciousness / Blacking out * Severe Headaches * Nausea * Short Term Memory Loss * Diminished Concentration * Cognitive Fatigue * Focus and Attention * Volatility * Multi-tasking difficulty * Personality changes or volatility * Learning difficulties * Vision, Taste, Smell and Hearing changes.
A traumatic brain injury can change how a student learns and acts in school. A TBI can also have long-term consequences on a person’s employment and social life. The effects of a brain injury are often not immediately apparent in the weeks or months following a trauma to the head.
If the injury has long term consequences and was caused by the carelessness – or negligence – of another, you may have a claim. Aside from recovering the costs of your medical care, you may have the right to recover loss of wages, education expenses, rehabilitation costs, retraining expenses, nursing care, loss of consortium, pain and suffering – and any other expenses that resulted, or will result, from your injury.
As a result, it’s essential that any financial settlement or award carefully consider both the past and future losses associated with the traumatic brain injury. In order to ensure all relevant medical facts are taken into consideration, the lawyers at McCormick & Murphy often consult experts, including medical doctors, neurologists, physical therapists, pain specialists, and psychologists in protecting our clients’ interests.
