What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injuries have been in the news recently because many sports players have reported suffering substantial head trauma. Concerns abound in the major leagues all the way down to youth sports teams. Additionally, medical mistakes, construction accidents and motor vehicle collisions, especially motorcycle crashes, can result in catastrophic brain injuries.
TBIs can range from severe — with symptoms such as paralysis, blindness or stroke — to mild, like a minor concussion. Regardless of severity of injury, someone suffering from a brain injury may have long-term repercussions. A TBI can impact a person’s physical abilities, personality and mood and behavior.
And the problem is much worse than most may think. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that about 1.5 million people are diagnosed with a TBI every year. Of those, 50,000 people die from their injuries and another 85,000 are forced to deal with the consequences of a traumatic brain injury for the rest of their lives. At present, the CDC says, more than 5.3 million people are living with diagnosed TBI-related disabilities in the US right now. (There are likely countless more people with brain injuries who did not receive an official diagnosis.)
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can include: headaches, nausea, dizziness, loss of memory, seizures, trouble sleeping or concentrating, problems with dexterity, sensitivity to light and sound, coordination issues and more. Anyone suffering from a TBI may not be able to return to work or school. Participating in usual quality of life activities may be impossible. Indeed, a brain injury can turn your life upside down.
Mr. Lewis will get to the bottom of what caused your injuries and, along with his team of experienced lawyers, he will work to recoup damages to help pay your medical bills, your monthly expenses and more while you concentrate on your recovery.
