Mesa Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Helping Victims of Brain Injury
Of all the injuries a victim can suffer during an accident, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most dangerous and possibly crippling. There are many accidents that cause damage to a person's brain but all of them have certain traits in common, namely, that suffering such injuries can permanently alter a person's ability to function normally or may result in death. When these injuries are the result of an accident caused by another party's actions, victims have the right to seek compensation for their injuries, the medical care they need to recover, and/or the long-term assistance they will need due to permanent disabilities.
The Mesa injury lawyers at Breyer Law, P.C. understand how difficult it can be to deal with a TBI and how such trauma can suddenly and permanently alter a person's life. Without the aid of compensation, these injuries can cause continued hardships and possibly worsen over time.
Frequent Causes of TBI Accidents
Any accident that involves a serious impact to or penetration of the head can immediately create trauma for the brain. The accidents that most commonly result in a victim suffering a TBI include:
- Car crashes;
- Motorcycle accidents;
- Being struck by falling objects; and
- Industrial accidents.
Depending on the seriousness of the accident and the amount of force felt by the victim, these accidents can range from a mild concussion to life-threatening brain damage. However, any TBI is serious and can have long-lasting effects on a victim.
Common Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Because all of a person's bodily functions are tied to their brain, a traumatic brain injury can affect any and all of a person's physical abilities as well as his or her mental capabilities. The effects of a TBI, ranging from short-term to permanent include:
- Loss of consciousness;
- Memory problems;
- Mood swings;
- Difficulty thinking;
- Comatose state;
- Impairment of higher cognitive functions;
- Limited function of legs or arms;
- Abnormal speech or language;
- Emotional problems; and
- Loss of thinking ability.
Many of these can occur immediately after an injury, but others slowly develop over time. In either case, proper and immediate medical care is needed to deal with an injury and to prevent effects from worsening or becoming deadly. Even then, many injuries can be permanent if the accident was severe enough.
