Questions About Traumatic Brain Injuries
Posted on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 at 9:46 am
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be among the most devastating types of injuries one can receive. Think about it (even to do that requires your brain!)—no part of your body, no thought or action occurs without your brain’s cooperation. Because TBIs can have a wide range of effects on your body and the complex manner in which they manifest, it can be difficult to determine the type and amount of compensation you and your family will need. That’s why it’s in your best interest to have an experienced Sacramento brain injury attorney on your side to help make your case clear and enable you to get the damages to which you are rightfully entitled. Below are some common questions regarding TBIs.
What exactly constitutes a traumatic brain injury?
A TBI is any injury to the brain after birth that is not genetic, congenital, or the result of a degenerative condition such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.
How do TBIs occur?
Brain injuries are most often caused by a blow or bump to the head or an object piercing the skull that is traumatic enough to disrupt normal brain function. This type of injury can occur in various circumstances, including car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian, slip and fall, and other accidents.
What are the possible effects of a TBI?
Your brain controls so many different functions in your body. A TBI can have a negative impact on cognitive (memory loss, learning issues, attention problems), emotional (mood swings, temper outbursts, anxiety), or physical (headaches, loss of bladder/bowel control, impaired mobility) functions.
Do TBIs cause permanent damage?
TBI can result in temporary, long-term, and, in some cases, permanent changes in abilities. Testing, medical treatments, and therapies can all be necessary for healing or remaining maximizing abilities and developing compensatory strategies. It is why the expenses associated with TBIs can be so high.
