Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

Following most serious accidents, the types of injuries that victims have suffered can be readily apparent to most people. Broken bones, for example, can require casts and clearly limit the victim’s regular movements.

One type of injury for which the true effects can be much more difficult for the average person to understand is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unlike most other injuries, people who have suffered TBIs do not always indicated any recognizable signs that they have sustained a very severe injury.

For this reason, insurance companies for negligent parties often downplay the possible severity of such injuries. In some cases, insurers may even argue TBI diagnoses.

Challenges for TBI Victims in California

Brain Injuries LawyerTBI victims deal with a number of profound consequences following accidents in which they sustained their injuries. Some of the most common problems TBI victims face includes:

  • Physical Problems — TBI victims may suffer from impaired speech, decreased vision, or partial paralysis.
  • Cognitive Issues — A TBI victim could be forced to deal with complex memory issues experience difficulty with basic concentration.
  • Psychological Issues — TBI victims can suffer from extreme depression, anxiety, or other mental issues as the result of their diagnoses.

Many TBI victims are unable to return to their former lines of work following the accidents that cause their injuries. Not only does this inability have an effect on a victim’s means for providing for his or her family, but it can also require very expensive full-time care in certain cases.

Compensation for TBI Victims in California

People may sustain TBIs in any one of a number of accidents in the Golden State. Some of the most common causes include, but are not limited to car accidents, slip and fall accidents, bicycle accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Several other kinds of accidents could result in a person suffering a TBI.

Unlike many other injuries that ultimately heal, a TBI is effectively permanent. People diagnosed with TBIs essentially never recover. These are injuries that victims are forced to deal with for the remainders of their lives.
