As often as we marvel at what our brains can do, we often forget just how fragile they can be. While our skulls can protect our brains from many of the everyday dangers we experience, a hard jolt to the skull can easily injure your brain. If that injury is the result of someone else acting carelessly, you deserve compensation for your injuries.
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can cause serious damage to your cognitive function for a long time. Even a minor concussion can leave you struggling through a fog, trying to get your life back on track.
Fortunately, The Kindley Firm, APC, is here for you. We can help you get compensation for your TBI, allowing you to focus on healing.
Any Head Impact Can Cause Trauma
If you’ve been struck, have fallen, or were otherwise the victim of a forceful impact to the head, a TBI is a very real possibility. TBIs are caused by a jolt to the brain, which can bump against the skull and disrupt normal brain function. The most common type of TBI is concussion. Concussions are relatively minor as TBIs go, although the more serious cases have led to the deaths of countless people each year.
Incidents serious enough to cause head injuries can come in many forms, including the following:
- Car accidents
- Intentional blows to the head
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Falls from a height
The Long-Term Effects of TBIs Are Devastating
Once a TBI has happened to you, it could affect your life for a long time to come. Even a mild concussion can cause symptoms like memory loss for six months or more.
Brain injury symptoms can affect every part of your life, from the mental to the physical. When certain symptoms impair you for even a few months, the effects can have a major impact on your life and your loved ones.
For example, TBI-sufferers often have trouble sleeping or sleep too much. This can disrupt your whole day—not just affecting things like your work schedule, but causing feelings of irritability and helplessness during this difficult time.
Many people who have experienced even a mild concussion describe a persistent foggy feeling—difficulty remembering, concentrating, and thinking clearly. When these and other symptoms carry on for months or even years, you deserve compensation for your pain and trouble.
