What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries? 

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are damage to the brain as the result of blunt force impact or penetration of the skull. Damage to the brain can be caused by resulting brain swelling and hemorrhages, concussions, or fractured skulls, disrupting the brain’s ability to function. This can lead to temporary or permanent neurological damage, traumatic epilepsy, and other serious debilitating effects. After a severe head injury, you may suffer extensive damage to your quality of life, experience severe pain, and require surgeries, other treatments, or rehabilitation. Medical care for traumatic brain injuries can cause catastrophic medical bills and lost wages. 

Open & Closed Brain Injuries

TBIs can be classified as open or closed. Closed-head injuries stem from the brain violently striking the skull wall when hit or from physical wounds to the head. Open-head brain injuries occur when the skull bones are fractured or broken causing damage to the brain’s soft tissue underneath. 

Examples of TBIs that our attorneys have handled include:

  • Concussions. These are minor injuries caused by the head or brain being shaken or from suffering blunt force trauma. 
  • Contusions. Traumatic force bruises the brain’s soft tissue; this causes leaking of the small blood vessels that create pressure in the skull.
  • Penetrating brain injuries. When an object pierces the skull reaching the brain, it can cause extensive neurological damage.
  • Anoxic injuries. These are caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. Brain cells then die resulting in traumatic brain damage. 

Even if you believe you have suffered only a minor concussion, you should always take any brain injury seriously. Effects may not manifest immediately and damage can be more severe than you understand. Ensuring you have proper medical attention in the aftermath of any blow to the head is essential. 

How a Traumatic Brain Injury Can Affect Your Life

The temporary or permanent effects of a brain injury can vary from person to person, depending on the injury’s circumstances and severity.

These effects can include but are not limited to:

  • Memory loss
  • Personality changes
  • Mood swings
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Speech problems
  • Vision impairment
  • Paralysis
  • Coma
  • Mobility impairment
  • Cognitive impairment, such as in reasoning, problem-solving, learning disabilities, and more
  • Depression, PTSD, and anxiety

These types of disabilities can totally disrupt your life, impair your ability to work and remain self-supporting, and require personal at-home assistance. Lack of income and spiraling expenses can lead to financial ruin without the resources needed to meet the demands of such a serious injury.

Recovering from a TBI

Recovery from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) involves a comprehensive approach that often includes medical treatment, rehabilitation, and support. Here's a breakdown of the treatment involved:

  • Emergency Medical Care: Immediate medical attention is crucial to stabilize the patient and prevent further damage. This may involve procedures to control bleeding, ensure proper oxygen supply, and stabilize blood pressure.
  • Diagnostic Tests: After stabilizing the patient, diagnostic tests such as CT scans or MRI scans are conducted to assess the extent and location of the injury.
  • Medication: Depending on the specific symptoms and complications, various medications may be prescribed. These can include pain relievers, anti-seizure drugs, medications to reduce intracranial pressure, and antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications to address emotional or behavioral changes.
  • Surgery: In cases where there is significant bleeding, swelling, or damage to the brain tissue, surgery may be necessary to remove clots, repair skull fractures, or relieve pressure on the brain.
  • Rehabilitation Therapy: Rehabilitation plays a vital role in helping individuals regain lost skills and adapt to any permanent changes resulting from the injury. This can include:
    • Physical Therapy: Helps improve strength, coordination, balance, and mobility.
    • Occupational Therapy: Focuses on regaining the ability to perform daily tasks such as dressing, cooking, and writing.
    • Speech and Language Therapy: Aims to improve communication skills, speech, and language comprehension.
    • Cognitive Rehabilitation: Helps address memory, attention, problem-solving, and other cognitive impairments.
    • Psychological Therapy: Provides support for emotional and psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, and adjustment to disability.
  • Assistive Devices: Depending on the individual's needs, various assistive devices such as mobility aids, communication devices, and memory aids may be recommended to improve independence and quality of life.
  • Long-Term Monitoring and Support: Recovery from a traumatic brain injury can be a lengthy process, and ongoing monitoring and support are essential. This may involve regular medical follow-ups, adjustments to treatment plans, and access to support groups or counseling services.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Adopting a healthy lifestyle can also support recovery. This includes getting adequate rest, eating a balanced diet, avoiding alcohol and drugs, and engaging in activities that promote brain health, such as physical exercise and cognitive stimulation.

Every traumatic brain injury is unique, and the treatment plan is tailored to the individual's specific needs, the severity of the injury, and any associated complications. Patients and their families need to work closely with healthcare professionals to ensure the best possible outcomes.
