Brain Injuries: Emotionally and Financially Traumatic
Posted on Tuesday, June 14th, 2022 at 12:18 pm
If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to an automobile, truck, motorcycle, or other accident, chances are you are feeling very overwhelmed dealing with the aftermath. A cause of a TBI is usually due to an external force like a bump or blow to the head. Disruption of normal brain function ranging from mild to severe can be the result. Since the brain is responsible for so much of our body’s abilities, the effects can be diverse and far-ranging. A few examples of possible impairment include:
- Cognitive—memory loss, trouble concentrating, learning disabilities, communication issues, difficulty with organizational tasks
- Emotional—mood swings, hallucinations, anxiety, difficulty understanding social norms, temper outbursts, impulsive behavior
- Physical—impaired mobility, seizures, loss of bladder or bowel control, migraines, fatigue, dizziness, coordination issues
Brain Injury Costs
Getting the treatment needed to recover from a TBI can be expensive and take longer. There will be a need for significant long-term changes, accommodations, and therapies in some cases. Some examples of needs are:
- Accommodative equipment
There is also the component of pain and suffering endured by the victim and their family when a TBI occurs as well as the concerns for lost income and future earning ability.
