Any injury can be scary to encounter, but those involving your brain can have devastating results. The most severe brain injuries can have a tremendous impact on your life, leaving you trying to figure out how to function in your day-to-day life.
It’s vital to pursue compensation if your brain injury results from someone else’s negligence. A TBI is one of the most catastrophic injuries and can range in severity. The more severe the injury is, the worse the symptoms, and the bigger the need for compensation to cover the long-term care you need.
Symptoms of a Mild TBI
Mild traumatic brain injuries can include concussions, which result in minor symptoms. For instance, you may lose consciousness for a few seconds or a couple of minutes. You may experience short-term memory loss or some confusion.
Many of the symptoms associated with a mild TBI may go away within a few weeks following the injury. Of course, some may also remain long after the injury occurs, and it’s important to speak with a doctor about your long-term care.
Symptoms of a Moderate or Severe TBI
Moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries often result in you losing consciousness for an extended period, sometimes even several hours. These traumatic brain injuries can have permanent effects on your brain and your abilities. You may have cognitive and development troubles moving forward and long-term memory loss.
The most severe traumatic brain injuries can lead to a coma or potentially death. In these cases, the family or the personal representative may take legal action against the negligent party to pursue compensation.
