Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

South Carolina Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer helpA traumatic brain injury (TBI) is not only life changing for the one who has suffered the injury, but it affects the lives of everyone around them.  People with brain injuries can require extensive rehabilitation, and sometimes even a lifetime of care.

A traumatic brain injury is a trauma induced injury to the brain.  It is usually the result of a sudden blow or a violent shaking of the head which causes the brain to violently impact the skull.  Traumatic brain injuries can have devastating and life changing effects.

TBI is often difficult to diagnose because the symptoms may not present themselves right after the incident.  The injury to the brain may not be immediately apparent to the victim or family members.  Symptoms can include headaches, confusion, memory loss, dizziness, drowsiness, seizures, and a change in behavior.  These can be signs of a serious condition.

Getting the proper medical attention and care in a timely fashion can be very important with a traumatic brain injury.  If you or someone you know has suffered a head injury it is vital to seek expert medical treatment immediately.

Traumatic brain injuries can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe depending on the severity of the neurological disruption or damage caused to the brain.  However, even a mild TBI can have profound impact on a person’s life.

Changes and Complications Caused by TBI

Cognitive Problems:  Cognitive problems can include difficulty concentrating and learning new information.  Some individuals with brain injuries become easily confused and experience memory loss.  Others may have difficulties doing simple tasks that they were able to perform prior to the injury.

Communication Problems:  Some individuals may have difficulties forming sentences, recalling words, and describing things verbally.

Behavioral Problems:    Some individuals show a change in their behavior.  They may become more violent or very submissive.  These changes sometimes affect how an individual acts in certain social environments and can affect their ability to be employed.

Vegetative states:  In very severe traumatic brain injuries, an individual may not be able to survive without constant treatment or aid.
