Metro New York personal injury attorney TBI

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) occur when a person receives a sudden and violent blow to the head or when an object pierces the skull and damages brain tissue. TBIs can result from car crashes, slip and fall accidents, assaults, and other incidents. Severe TBIs can cause long-term, debilitating symptoms. Victims of TBI are often burdened by overwhelming medical expenses and left unable to work. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, a personal injury claim may help you recover compensation for your damages if another party’s negligent actions led to your accident.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The brain is responsible for a wide range of crucial body functions, including sensory information processing, memory, thought, muscle movement, and the regulation of breathing and blood pressure. When the brain is damaged, the results can be catastrophic. TBI sufferers may experience headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, confusion, inability to concentrate, memory problems, changes in mood, and more. In severe TBI cases, the sufferer may experience these symptoms as well as vomiting, seizures, slurred speech, numbness, inability to awaken from sleep, loss of coordination, and cognitive impairment. A concussion is a common form of TBI that can vary significantly in severity. Some people suffer a concussion and do not even realize it. Others, especially those who develop post-concussion syndrome, may experience incapacitating symptoms for weeks or months after the injury-causing incident.
