Impacts of Traumatic Brain Injuries in Virginia

Any type of violent bump, blow, or sudden jolting and shaking of the head can disrupt the neural processes in the brain, resulting in traumatic brain injuries. These often occur as a result of accidents and, according to the Mayo Clinic, impact millions of people each year. 

Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries can prove devastating for victims, resulting in long-term disabilities. Common impacts are likely to include: 

Physical Symptoms

  • Chronic headaches;
  • Nausea;
  • Difficulty walking or maintaining balance;
  • Lack of coordination;
  • Problems feeding or dressing oneself and performing other daily activities. 

Cognitive Symptoms

  • Impaired thinking or reasoning skills;
  • Difficulty in communicating with others or understanding what is being said;
  • Short or long-term memory loss;
  • Difficulty concentrating and shorter attention span. 

Sensory Symptoms

  • Vision disturbances;
  • Loss of hearing;
  • Blurred or double vision;
  • Less of smell or taste. 

Emotional Symptoms

  • General anxiety and panic attacks;
  • Depression and suicidal thoughts;
  • Increased anger and flying into fits of rage;
  • Isolation from family and friends. 

Your Rights in Seeking Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injuries

According to the Brain Injury Association of Virginia, TBI impacts over 5,000 people throughout our state each year. It is a leading cause of injury death and, even in seemingly minor cases, can result in long-term disabilities. Common causes of TBI include: 

  • Motor-vehicle accidents;
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents;
  • Slips and falls;
  • Injuries in the workplace. 

When these or other types of accidents resulting in TBI are caused by the reckless actions of others, you have the right to hold them accountable for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs you incur as a result. Compensation may be available either through insurers or by filing a personal injury lawsuit through the Virginia Court.
