Connecticut Brain Injury Attorneys
Brain injury can happen in many ways - motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, sports injuries, birth injuries, and medical malpractice. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a contributing factor in 30% of all injury deaths in the nation. Each day in the U.S., 138 people die from injuries that include TBI.
Those who survive traumatic brain injury may suffer the effects for only a few days, or for the rest of their lives. Long-term disabilities associated with TBI include impaired memory, thinking, vision, hearing, and movement, and personality changes or depression. Brain injury affects not only the victims, but their families and communities as well.
What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
TBI is injury to the brain caused by a blow or injury to the head or the body. The extent of the damage can depend on many factors, including the force of impact and circumstances in which the injury occurred:
- A severe blow or jolt that causes the brain to move back and forth in the skull can damage multiple points of the brain.
- A direct blow to the skull may damage only the area directly beneath the point of impact.
- Rotation or spinning can cause tearing of the cellular structures.
- An explosive blast can cause widespread damage to the brain.
- An object that penetrates the skull can do irreparable damage to blood vessels, brain cells, and protective tissues.
- Any injury that causes bleeding, swelling, or blood clots in and around the brain can disrupt the supply of oxygen and further injure the brain.
Seeking Compensation After Traumatic Brain Injury
Severe TBI is a catastrophic injury that can have long-term effects on your life. You may need extensive medical treatment and physical therapy. Your injuries may affect your ability to work, now and in the future. If someone else caused your traumatic brain injury, it is crucial to seek compensation from the responsible party to help provide for your family’s future.
The best way to begin the process is to consult with a Connecticut personal injury attorney and file a claim for compensation for your losses. Damages you may be able to claim include:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
