Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have long-term effects that change people's lives significantly. Even a mild TBI, like a concussion, can cause issues such as confusion, personality changes, headaches, sleep disorders, tinnitus, and difficulty controlling emotions.
Moderate TBI victims typically suffer similar symptoms but with greater severity. In addition, this group may experience nausea and vomiting, trouble speaking, difficulty with physical coordination, and weakness in the extremities. They may also have seizures.
Severe TBI is the most dangerous type of brain injury. These patients’ symptoms are often so debilitating that they need 24-hour care. Severe TBIs can cause long-term unconsciousness. A persistent vegetative state or coma is not uncommon in such a scenario. If the brain is not able to recover its function, the injury may turn fatal, either at the time it occurs or months or years later.
Why You Need Compensation for Your Losses
Mild, moderate and severe brain injuries can have lifelong effects on victims and their families. Many TBI victims cannot return to their jobs, and some may not be able to complete everyday tasks on their own. Others suffer from memory loss and significant personality changes, which can be devastating not only for the victim but also for their family and friends.
The more severe the injury, the higher the possibility the victim will need a lifetime of expensive medical care. At the same time, their income and earning ability will likely be greatly reduced if not eliminated altogether. To cover the medical expenses and loss of income, TBI victims need considerable financial compensation.
Our Pittsburgh brain injury lawyers have the experience to help you and your loved ones through traumatic brain injury cases. We understand your needs and will advocate for you to win the compensation you deserve.
How Do You Recognize a Brain Injury?
Sometimes brain damage is not detected immediately, even by physicians. Symptoms may not be apparent for days or weeks. If you or someone you know has been in an accident or experienced any sudden impacts to the head, it is important to look for signs of brain injuries such as:
- Mood swings
- Blurred vision
- Memory loss and confusion
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dilated pupils
No matter how small you think an accident was, if brain damage is a possibility, you need to take action immediately. Minor brain injuries can predispose patients to more serious damage, especially if they are not treated in a timely manner. Let our knowledgeable legal team work for you to make sure you get the medical treatment and recovery you need.
