Brain Injuries Archives

Brain injuries impact the entire family, not just the victim

In a recent blog post, we discussed how brain injuries can impact children. These injuries can take away the promise of a young child. They can take away the ability of a child to move toward becoming a fully functional adult. The impacts of these injuries don't stop there.

Childhood traumatic brain injuries can lead to significant issues

There are a lot of variables that can have an impact on the way that a person recovers from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). One of these is the age of the person when they suffer from the injury. Oftentimes, younger children fare better after a TBI because they are able to compensate for the impacts of the injury and move forward with new methods of doing things.

Determine liability in any brain injury accident case

Brain injuries vary in cause, effect and severity. When you suffer a catastrophic brain injury that affects every aspect of your life, you might consider taking legal action to try to get the financial help that you are going to need to cover your medical bills and other expenses related to the injury.

Penetrating brain injuries can cause brain damage

A penetrating brain injury is one that is possible in car accidents and many other types of accidents. This type of injury involves something going through the skin and the skull into the area around the brain or the brain itself. These injuries are very dangerous and require immediate medical care.

Brain injury diagnosis isn't always easy

When you suffer from a hit to the head, or even a jarring of the head, you might want to be evaluated for a brain injury. Unfortunately, you might be in for an unpleasant surprise because diagnosing a brain injury isn't easy. There are many different tests that can be done to make a diagnosis, but there isn't one single test necessary to make the diagnosis.

Teens with a brain injury face very specific challenges

Anyone who suffers from a brain injury can end up with lasting effects from that injury. For teens, the effects can be especially troubling because they are just trying to find their way around the world. Even though the effects of the injury might make life difficult for the teen, it is still possible for them to learn how to live a full life if they are willing to take the time and put forth the effort it takes to do so.

Seeking compensation for a brain injury might be possible

As we discussed last week, the types of brain injuries vary greatly from one case to another. A person who suffers a brain injury in an accident might decide to explore the possibility of seeking compensation. This is an option in cases that involved an accident that was caused the recklessness or negligence of another party. For example, if the brain injury was caused in an accident caused by a drunk driver, the victim might opt to seek compensation.

Types of brain injuries vary greatly

There are several different types of brain injuries that can occur when a person is involved in an accident. While each of these injuries has differences from the others, they can all have effects that last a long time. The victims of these types of injuries might choose to seek compensation for the injury if the accident was caused by recklessness or negligence by another person.

Complications from brain injuries can be serious

Many people think of the immediate symptoms that will occur if you suffer from a traumatic brain injury. There are other effects that can occur. These complications can impact the remainder of your life in one way or another. If you suffered from a TBI or have a loved one who suffered from one, you should understand the complications that can occur.
