When a person is involved in an accident, they could suffer any number of different injuries. Some of these injuries may be minor and do not require compensation, while others are catastrophic injuries that incur high medical bills and ongoing treatment that the victim cannot afford without restitution. One such injury is traumatic brain injury (TBI). Accidents that involve severe impact of some kind, such as a car accident or a slip and fall, can cause the victim to hit their head and jar their brain.Defining Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Minor cases of brain injury are commonly known as concussions. These injuries occur when the brain is lightly bruised, resulting in slight swelling and hemorrhaging in the area. The victim could black out for a moment or a few minutes and/or experience dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, memory loss for up to a day, and a severe headache. When the damage to the brain is more serious, these symptoms become more severe. TBI can cause lasting or permanent memory loss, permanent brain damage, or could even result in a coma. If you or a loved one has suffered TBI in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, you deserve full compensation for any financial, physical, and emotional damages.
