The human skull protects one of the most critical parts of our bodies: our brains. Injuries to the brain can cause death, but even nonfatal brain injuries can cause significant problems and issues for the victim. Some of these complications can last the victim’s lifetime and require hundreds of thousands of dollars in ongoing medical treatment. This, in turn, can be debilitating not only to the victim but also to the victim’s family.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be suffered in connection with various personal injury accidents. Car accidents, violent attacks, and slips and falls are just some of the ways in which a TBI can be sustained. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, contact Hampton Injury Law for immediate and personalized assistance. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.
TBIs are routinely described in terms of the manner in which they were inflicted or the severity of the symptoms associated with the injury. A TBI can be inflicted through a blunt force injury (being struck in the head or the head striking a hard surface), a piercing injury (in which a sharp object pierces the skull), or through whiplash injuries (in which the head is shaken back and forth repeatedly and with great force). The means through which a TBI occurs generally has little relation to how severe the resulting TBI is.
In terms of severity, TBIs can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe depending on the severity of memory loss and loss of consciousness associated with the TBI. Where there is little or no memory loss and/or loss of consciousness associated with the TBI, it can be described as “mild.” A TBI in which the individual experienced a greater-than-seven day period of memory loss (i.e., he or she could not remember events that occurred within the previous eight days after sustaining the TBI) or where the individual was unconscious for more than 24 hours would be classified as “severe.”
If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, you are likely concerned about your prognosis and any lingering effects the TBI would cause. While a small percentage of mild TBIs result in some permanent disability (i.e., the majority of individuals who suffer a mild TBI will not experience any permanent or lasting effects), nearly every person who suffers a severe TBI will have some permanent disability because of the injury. In some cases, the TBI victim may require hundreds of thousands of dollars in-home health care services over the course of his or her lifetime.
When you or a loved one has suffered a TBI because of someone else’s carelessness, you need someone on your side who can forcefully argue your cause and who is committed to helping you recover the financial compensation you need. Contact Jan Hoen and Hampton Injury Law for the personalized and knowledgeable assistance you need after a TBI.
