Posted on Tuesday, October 25th, 2022 at 7:58 am
Being involved in a car accident is a horror under any circumstance, but if you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI); as a result, your recovery is even more complicated. In addition to medical expenses, loss of wages, and healing from your physical injuries, you may have to deal with unexpected and frightening long-term consequences.
Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Your brain is the command center of your body. Therefore, a damaged part can affect a wide range of abilities and faculties. TBIs fall into three categories: cognitive, emotional, and physical. Some disorders these may cause include:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Trouble communicating
- Learning problems
- Poor judgment
- Mood swings
- Impulsive behavior
- Balance difficulties
- Loss of bladder and bowel control
- Changes in vision, hearing, taste, smell, or touch
These types of changes are life-altering and can result in emotional distress for the person with the TBI and their families.
Seeking Damages for TBIs
In addition to the medical expenses and loss of current and future income, you are entitled to seek compensation for pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life. These types of injuries can significantly affect your mental and physical well-being. Putting a dollar amount on this damage is difficult because it’s not easily quantifiable.
