Types of Brain Injuries
There are three types of brain injuries in most medical contexts:
- Anoxic brain injury: The result of oxygen or blood disruption to the brain.
- Hypoxic brain injury: The result of insufficient blood or oxygen supply to the brain.
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI): A blanket term used to describe other injuries like concussions or contusions.
Consequences of Brain Injuries
The effects of a brain injury depend on the damage suffered. One person might suffer a concussion and heal from it within a matter of weeks without lasting repercussions. On the other hand, someone else might suffer a similar head injury and never recover entirely from it.
A brain injury can cause a wide range of physical and cognitive symptoms including:
- Dizziness and difficulties with balance
- Blurred vision
- Memory loss
- Impaired decision making
- Behavioral changes including depression and anxiety
Treatment Options for Brain Injuries
Rarely can a brain injury be treated with over-the-counter medication and bedrest. Instead, a TBI patient will need to see a medical professional for immediate diagnosis and in-depth testing to get a full understanding of the injury. Severe brain injuries require emergency care and perhaps even surgery.
In many cases, the patient will need continued medical care after being released from the hospital. Occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy might be required to alleviate lingering symptoms and restore bodily functions like motor control.
What Damages Can You Claim in a TBI Case?
As someone living with the consequences of a brain injury, your life has likely been entirely disrupted. You probably have piles of medical bills and a total loss of income due to being unable to continue work as normal. With a successful brain injury claim, you can get economic and noneconomic damages to pay for all of the costs and hardships you have endured now and in the future.
Your damages can include:
- Medical care (past and future)
- Lost wages
- Lowered earning capacity
- Pain, suffering, and PTSD
