Traumatic brain injury refers to any injury that is caused by a trauma to the head. Traumatic brain injuries can occur from almost any type of accidents and medical procedures that involve the facial area. Brain trauma occurs when the brain is slammed back and forth against the skull, due to an external force (i.e. a car crash).
Traumatic brain injuries often leave the victim with significant brain damage. Brain damage can affect the victim’s physical function, social skills, as well as the ability to think and comprehend. Some of the physical functions that can be lost are the ability to pay attention and bladder and bowel problems.
Victims of child and elder abuse are at the highest risk of incurring a traumatic brain injury.
Traumatic brain injuries also have many behavioral consequences. These behavioral symptoms may scar a person’s social skills for life.
Behavioral symptoms from traumatic brain injury include:
- Lack of desire
- Difficulty controlling emotion
- Decreased ability to cope with stress
- Speech impairment
- Difficulty walking
Traumatic brain injuries are usually life long and extremely impairing. Most brain injuries leave the victim with the inability to do many of the things they once did. Traumatic brain injury can result from even the smallest accidents. If the accident that leads to the traumatic brain injury was the result of another entity’s negligence, then that entity may be liable for the injury.
In court, the accused entity will have attorneys that will try to refute and devalue your case. Having an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney on your side will help fight and counter the testimony given by the accused.
