The unseen impact of a TBI

On Behalf of | May 11, 2022 | Uncategorized

Traumatic brain injuries can occur for many reasons. They may happen during a car accident, slip and fall or another situation caused by someone else’s negligence or fault. 

After suffering a brain injury, a person’s life can change drastically. Even if they look the same on the outside, they may experience problems with focus, memory, speech and more. 

Unfortunately, many people who experience a TBI aren’t thought of as disabled simply because they look the same physically. Friends and family members may even forget about the limitations this injury has caused. However, the long-term impact of a TBI is real and the victim deserves to be compensated for how their life will change. 

Long-term physical effects of a TBI

The physical effects of a TBI vary from person to person and depend on factors like the severity of the injury. While this is true, many victims experience extreme headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, short-term memory problems, changes in personality or mood and issues with focus. This is just a sample of some of the long-term physical effects a TBI can have on a person’s life. 

Long-term emotional effects of a TBI

Along with the physical impact of a TBI, these injuries can also cause emotional and mental health concerns. These are often issues that the victim must deal with for the rest of their life. They include things like depression, anxiety, impulse control and mood swings. 

Your rights to compensation after a TBI

Those impacted by a TBI in an accident caused by someone else have the right to receive compensation for the immediate and long-term issues the injury will cause. Protecting these rights often means requesting a fair amount of compensation from the at-fault party or even, when necessary, filing a lawsuit.
