The Impact Of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries include a wide spectrum of conditions ranging from mild concussions to traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that can leave a sufferer unable to care for himself or herself. The worst cases may leave an accident victim in a coma temporarily or indefinitely.

Those accident victims most severely injured will likely need lifelong nursing care. Those accident victims more mildly impacted may recover a near-normal way of life, but many struggle with ongoing symptoms such as:

  • Recurring migraine-sized headaches
  • Numbness, tinnitus and/or vertigo
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Inability to tolerate overstimulation such as ordinary crowd noises in public places

If you or a family member suffered a closed head brain injury in a car accident, fall accident or other type of accident, evaluation of your long-term prospects may be tedious. Casual observers may believe you have recovered once you "look normal" again. However, your quality of life may be permanently impacted. You may be unable to hold down a job. You may need therapy and disability accommodations for a long time or a lifetime.

For these reasons, the diagnosis and prognosis of your condition may require assistance from specialists such as neuropsychologists. A personal injury claim or lawsuit can tap into financial resources that can help you cope with the challenges of living as a head injury survivor.
