A traumatic brain injury is the result of permanent brain damage due to being shaken roughly or suffering blows to the head - caused by a vehicle accident, a fall from a significant height or perhaps physical abuse.
A person who incurs traumatic brain injury (or TBI) will need acute treatment in order to stabilize them and prevent further injury. A severe blow to the head can cause mild to serious brain trauma that may have permanent effects. For those coping with moderate to severe injury, further treatment is necessary.
A person suffering from TBI requires help from family, friends, doctors and therapists to re-learn day-to-day skills. In addition, they need both physical mental rehabilitation and emotional support from those close to them. An individual who suffers permanent brain damage will not be able to carry on with life in a normal fashion - they may not be able to walk or talk, let alone breathe by themselves.
Brain injuries can have severe consequences. If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury that was caused by the negligence of another person, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney. You or your loved one may be eligible for compensation from the individual whose negligence resulted in the injuries.
