A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a serious and potentially debilitating injury that may require ongoing medical care and supervision. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious traumatic brain injury in an accident because of another party’s carelessness or negligence, John M. Kenney, P.C. can help you file a personal injury claim.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that there are more than five million adults and children in the United States who are suffering from a TBI. Many of these injuries are sustained in different kinds of accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, plane crashes, medical malpractice accidents, construction accidents, slip accidents, fall accidents, near-drowning accidents, and birthing accidents.
Different Kinds of Brain Injuries:
- Skull Fractures
- Contusion (bruising)
- Diffuse Axonal Injury
- Partial Brain Damage
- Coup Contrecoup Injury
- Second Impact Syndrome
- Locked In Syndrome
- Permanent Brain Damage
The effects of a traumatic brain injury on a person, as well as his or her family and friends, can be life-altering. A person who has sustained a traumatic brain injury may have problems accomplishing simple tasks, such as talking to people, recalling events and appointments, and staying focused, for the rest of his or her life.
Other Conditions That May Result From A Brain Injury:
- Abnormal bone growth
- Chronic headaches
- Permanent brain damage
Caring for someone with a brain injury can be economically and emotionally devastating, and family members and loved ones must also deal with the trauma of having to accept the fact that their son, daughter, mother, father, husband, or wife may be a changed person forever.
