When Extreme Damage Results In A Traumatic Brain Injury

Different areas of the law outline specific protections for individuals should they become harmed as the result of someone else’s negligence. Though personal injury may be the umbrella term to cover the various situations that can arise, different situations may require the skills of an attorney specializing in that specific practice area. For instance, an individual that becomes injured on someone else’s property might be best off seeking the guidance of a premises liability attorney. What makes personal injury law unique, however, is that not all situations have a dedicated specialization, and if you or a loved one experiences something such as a traumatic brain injury, what does this mean for your legal recourse options? In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX catastrophic injury attorneys explore the intricacies of traumatic brain injuries and how our team of experienced attorneys can help.

What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?

Typically, a traumatic brain injury results from a violent blow or jolt to the head. It can also occur if an object passes through brain tissue, such as a bullet or other object. In the case of mild TBI, brain cells may be affected only temporarily, whereas with more serious traumatic brain injuries can result in bleeding, torn tissues, bruising, and other physical damage to the organ. Should you or a loved one experience such an injury, it is important to learn about your legal recourse options from an experienced team.

Some common causes of TBI include vehicle-related collisions, major falls such as in construction, sports injuries, and more. They can be devastating for both the individuals experiencing them and their families, and can even lead to paralysis, the inability to communicate, coma, or death. To learn more about brain injuries and what your options may be, give our office a call. 

How It Can Impact Your Life

Though it may only take seconds to sustain a brain injury, the lifelong effects can be quite profound. For individuals experiencing a mild brain injury, symptoms might include headache, nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to light or sound, loss of consciousness, and memory/concentration problems. In more severe cases, an individual could endure convulsions or seizures, persistent headache, repeated vomiting or nausea, the inability to awaken from sleep, loss of coordination, slurred speech, profound confusion, and even coma. 

In terms of life-altering effects, a person may experience an altered state of consciousness in which consciousness, awareness, and/or responsiveness are significantly affected. This can include coma, minimal consciousness, and brain death. Physical issues may present in the form of seizures, fluid buildup inside the brain, vertigo, and intellectual issues can include both cognitive problems and complications with executive function.
