Brain Injury Victims Can Face a Lifetime of Loss

According to Mayo Clinic, brain injuries can vary from mild—most commonly a concussion—to severe—a traumatic brain injury (TBI). In general, brain injuries involve some sort of blow to the head or puncture in the skull. Various incidents can result in brain injuries, but every case is unique since victims can suffer numerous medical complications.

Recovery is also different for everyone. In catastrophic cases, some victims may never fully recover. During your recovery, you may continue to suffer physical and emotional pain. We know your future can feel uncertain. You may not know right now what long-term care looks like. You may need speech, occupational, or physical therapy.

Our brain injury attorney in The Bronx can explore options with you to help you understand your individual short-term and long-term needs. 

Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Depending on the damage and the person, a severe injury to the brain could result in extensive damage, such as psychological, and physical damages, and life-long treatment. There could be cognitive and physical disabilities due to this incident. According to Mayo Clinic, a mild traumatic brain injury can cause the following symptoms:

  • Problems with speech
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue or drowsiness

Victims may also experience sensory issues, such as blurred vision and ringing in the ears. Even with a mild traumatic brain injury, victims can also suffer cognitive complications, such as disorientation, mood changes, and bouts of depression and anxiety.

A severe traumatic brain injury can cause the following symptoms:

  • Confusion
  • Agitation, combativeness, or other uncharacteristic behavior
  • Dilation of one or both pupils
  • A runny nose or runny ears
  • Loss of consciousness, which can last several minutes to hours
  • Persistent headaches or a worsening headache
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Convulsions
  • Seizures
  • Weakness or numbness in fingers and toes
  • Loss of coordination
  • Slurred speech
  • Coma and other disorders of consciousness

We want to help you find the best ways to cope with these symptoms by helping you get the resources and care you need.

How a Traumatic Brain Injury Can Occur

There are several ways for a brain injury to occur. It is imperative to know the cause of your brain injury because this will help you assign liability to a negligent party.

Blunt trauma accidents mean a person was struck by an object that caused damage to the brain. These injuries can occur from but are not limited to:

Another possibility of a brain injury is an assault. An act of violence that results in head injuries can include abuse, gunshot wounds, shaken baby syndrome, explosives, and wrongful death. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the number one cause of TBIs. The CDC states traumatic brain injuries can result in long-term difficulties with long-term care and expenses. We want to make sure you understand the care you need now and the care that you may need in the future.

A traumatic brain injury can affect any person of any age; however, it is most common in children and the elderly. TBIs affect men more than women. However, anyone can become a victim of a brain injury.

Is My Case Time Sensitive?

The sooner you contact us, the better. According to CPLR § 214, you generally have only three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. We encourage you to act now. You do not want to miss your chance to file a lawsuit.

You should also know that our attorneys have a workers’ compensation and a personal injury department so that we can manage both cases for work-related injury.

Brain injuries are enough of a headache. We can help ease your pain by picking up the legal legwork and streamlining your case.  

Brain Injury Statistics

The CDC states that an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury. According to the Department of Health State of New York, reports indicate about 400 traumatic brain injuries leading to emergency room care or hospitalization happen every day in New York State.

The treatment for TBIs may be through inpatient or outpatient hospitalization, depending upon the severity. It is also estimated that TBIs generally account for over 2,000 deaths, 19,000 hospitalizations, and over 112,000 visits to the emergency department every year.
