Traumatic Brain Injury and Head Injury

Brain & Head Injuries Caused by Negligence

     In the United States some 1.5 million people suffer traumatic brain injury every year. Head injuries range from mild concussions to severe brain damage. Severe or traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is commonly caused by a sudden and violent blow to the head. Motor vehicle accidents are one of the primary causes of traumatic brain injury. I have handled many car accident cases, truck accident cases and motorcycle collision cases where someone has suffered a head injury. I have seen cases where someone has suffered a traumatic brain injury from an accident at work or even a trip and fall at the local mall.

     A traumatic brain injury can cause many problems. Any brain function can be disrupted by brain trauma: excessive sleepiness, inattention, difficulty concentrating, impaired memory, faulty judgment, depression, irritability, emotional outbursts, disturbed sleep, diminished libido, difficulty switching between two tasks, and slowed thinking. I often hear that the person who was injured was not the same person they were before the accident. Family members often say that the injured person’s personality has changed.

Traumatic Brain Injuries affect the entire family

     I understand that a head injury does not just affect the person who suffered the actual injury. A brain injury affects the entire family. Brain injuries often cause stress in family and interpersonal relationships.

     In general, symptoms of traumatic brain injury should lessen over time as the brain heals. Sometimes the symptoms worsen because of the patient's inability to adapt to the brain injury. For this and other reasons, it is not uncommon for psychological problems to arise and worsen after brain injury. There are no definitive answers or reasons as to why one person can recover and another can never work again.
