Injured in a Pedestrian Accident
and Need Legal Counsel?
A Traumatic Brain Injury, also known as (TBI), can be devastating to a person’s professional and personal life. Often the result of an impact to the head, TBIs are can be caused by blunt force trauma or restricted oxygen flow to the brain.
Approximately 1.7 million Americans experience a TBI each year, and over 70,000 experience long-term disability. TBIs range from mild to severe, with some people quickly returning to “life as usual,” and others suffering permanent brain damage.
What if TBI symptoms are not obvious?
Many TBI symptoms are not obvious, and it is common for those evaluating a possible brain injury to underestimate how severe a TBI is. An individual recovering from a TBI may experience subtle changes in mood, vision, and sensation in the legs. They may also experience forgetfulness, loss of cognitive function, confusion, brain fog, depression, anxiety, or word loss. Each person will experience these symptoms differently, making TBI cases inherently difficult to prove.
What if I’m suffering from a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI)?
A Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, or “MTBI,” often occurs the same way as a TBI. Although an MTBI may not be life-threatening, these injuries can seriously impact a person’s physical, cognitive, and emotional state. It is important to take any experienced symptoms seriously. If left untreated or ignored, the injury could get worse and symptoms can potentially intensify over time.
