Traumatic Brain Injury in Farmington Hills

Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.7 million people are affected by a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Of these incidents, around 50,000 result in fatality, while 270,000 are hospitalized. A TBI is brain damage that is caused by force to the skull, which could be from motor vehicle accidents, birth injuries, sports-related injuries, a slip and fall accident, or even a violent crime. An individual can experience either closed head trauma or a penetrating head injury. Closed head trauma is when the skull and brain remain unbroken. This may result in a concussion, bleeding in the brain (intracranial hematoma), bruises on the brain tissue (cerebral contusion), axonal injury, and others.

A penetrating head injury, or open head injury, occurs when an object passes through the skull and brain, usually causing serious medical emergencies. Victims often experience hemorrhaging, herniation, and fractured skulls. If you have been a victim of TBI, you need a lawyer for your injury case in that makes themselves available to you. I, Attorney Jon Abrahams, am available 24/7 for your needs.

What are possible effects of TBI?

TBIs may affect a person's behavioral, cognitive, and physical functioning to varying degrees. Depending on the area of the brain that was damaged, a person could experience the following:

  • Physical: A person may experience changes to their body as a result of TBI. Headaches are a major effect, which almost all TBI victims experience. Other physical hurts may include loss of hearing, dizziness, speaking difficulties, blurry eyesight and lack of energy.
  • Cognitive: TBI victims can also find that they have difficulty process information, or thinking. They may have difficulty in their concentration, a shortened attention span, repetition, difficult with decision-making, and forgetfulness.
  • Behavioral: Effects on a victim's behavior may include mood changes, impulsiveness, getting easily angered, and generally feeling unlike a person's former self. TBI has also been known to lead to increased alcohol consumption, using drugs, and smoking.

It is important that individuals with TBI seek out help for their symptoms, as well as seek compensation from the person responsible for their injury. Abrahams Law can help victims get their rightful dues so that justice is achieved.

Can TBI be treated?

If a person begins early enough, then it can often be possible for traumatic brain injuries to be treated. Therapists may be able to work with the victim to help them improve their motor abilities, like speech and movement. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, rehab can help people restore skills that they had before their accident. There are a multitude of different therapists that can help individuals do this, such as physical therapists, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and even neuropsychologists. There are also certain medications that can help a person manage their pain and behavioral issues. It is important to see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident to ensure the best chance of recovery.
