Brain Injury Consequences
Brain injury can lead to a number of long-term issues such as:
- Cognitive disabilities
- Memory loss
- Problems with judgment and other executive functioning
- Difficulties concentrating
- Vision and hearing impairments
- Language and speech difficulties
- Emotional and behavioral problems
In the long-term, traumatic brain injury may increase a victim’s risk for:
- Parkinson’s disease
Depending on the extent of the injury and how quickly emergency medical intervention took place, some of the disabilities caused by brain injuries will be permanent. In other cases, long-term rehabilitation may be effective at restoring some function, though full recovery is never a guarantee.
Seeking Legal Help
The economic expenses associated with brain injury can be astronomical, often exceeding hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition, the physical and emotional suffering caused by brain injury can take a heavy toll both on victims and their families. Typically, insurance settlements fail to take into account the full damages suffered by brain injury victims. To ensure you are treated fairly and provided maximum compensation, you need a traumatic brain injury attorney on your side.
