Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

Typically, traumatic brain injury occurs as a result of head trauma during an accident. Slips and falls, car accidents, construction accidents, and items falling from heights can all cause serious brain injuries. There are several common symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury, which can range from mild to severe. Symptoms may clear up quickly, within a few days, or linger for a year or more. In some cases, symptoms of traumatic brain injury are permanent. Symptoms often include:

  • Difficulty paying attention: Someone who usually has laser-like focus may find themselves struggling to pay attention to even common tasks following their injuries. Long-term concentration may become difficult or even impossible.
  • Speech and language difficulties: After a traumatic brain injury, you may struggle to understand speech or to speak normally. Your ability to communicate verbally or through the written word may be severely compromised.
  • Slurred speech: Slurred speech is often one of the most obvious identifiers of traumatic brain injury. You may mumble or struggle to find words.
  • Memory problems: Many patients with traumatic brain injuries struggle to remember what happened immediately surrounding the accident. Worse, however, is when you begin to struggle with remembering the past or remembering things that happened after the accident. Both short-term and long-term memory may be affected. Patients may have trouble remembering why they walked into a room or what items should have been on their grocery list, or they may struggle to call older memories to mind.
  • Processing difficulties: Simply thinking through a task or remembering how to do something may become more difficult after a traumatic brain injury.
  • Hearing problems: The way the patient hears or perceives sound may change as a result of traumatic brain injury.
  • Vision difficulties: After a traumatic brain injury, you may have trouble seeing. Your vision may be cloudy, or “floaters” may appear in your vision. You may also have difficulty focusing or interpreting visual information.
  • Headaches: It’s normal to experience headaches following a traumatic brain injury, including headaches that are severe or have a long duration.
  • Seizures: Seizures may also occur in patients with a traumatic brain injury. These may be a single-time occurrence or they may occur multiple times over a long period of time.
  • Difficulty with emotional regulation: If you’ve experienced a traumatic brain injury, you may struggle with uncharacteristic episodes of anger or tears. You may behave impulsively or struggle to respond appropriately to various situations.

Who Is Responsible for Paying for Your Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injury is devastating, and identifying the person who is responsible or legally liable is critical to receiving the payment you’re due. In order to receive damages, you must establish that your injury occurred due to someone who had a duty of care to you and then breached that responsibility. For example, if you’re injured in a car accident, everyone on the road has a duty of care to watch out for other drivers and drive responsibly, which is often breached leading up to an accident.

Discovering the Damages You’re Due

In a traumatic brain injury case, the damages you can recover will depend on how and where you were injured, who bears responsibility, and how severely you were injured. Common damages may include:

  • Payment for your pain and suffering, including physical, mental, and emotional anguish as a result of your injuries
  • Funds to help pay for your medical bills
  • Compensation for lost wages due to your injuries
  • Compensation for lost earning potential as a result of long-term injuries: for example, if you are unable to return to work in your former field, you may be due compensation for your loss
  • Funeral and burial expenses, if a loved one is killed as a result of a traumatic brain injury

Denying Liability: Common Strategies

In some cases, those who are liable for your traumatic brain injury will try to get out of paying the funds you deserve. This often occurs when the insurance company offers a settlement that’s too low—that is, one that doesn’t reflect the full amount you’re due for your injuries. In other cases, the person or entity responsible for your traumatic brain injury may attempt to deny liability by passing it on to someone else or insisting that you are to blame for your own injuries.
