What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, jolt, or penetrating injury to the head. The severity of a TBI may range from mild, such as a brief change in mental status or consciousness, to severe, such as an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.

Common Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Common Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can vary widely based on the nature and severity of the injury. However, they generally fall into four categories: cognitive, physical, sensory, and emotional. Here are some typical symptoms associated with each category.

Cognitive:

  • Memory problems
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Slowed thinking

Physical:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Balance issues
  • Speech difficulties

Sensory:

  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Changes in the ability to smell or taste

Emotional:

  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Irritability or anger
  • Personality changes

The combination of different symptoms of different severities can significantly impact the individual’s daily life and overall well-being.

What Accidents Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries?

What Accidents Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Any number of accidents or incidents can result in a TBI, including the following:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Car crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck wrecks, and pedestrian-vehicle collisions are frequent causes of TBIs;
  • Falls: These (including slips, trips, and falls from heights) are a leading cause of TBIs, particularly for older adults and young children;
  • Sports and recreation injuries: Contact sports such as football, hockey, and martial arts, as well as recreational activities like skateboarding and bicycling, can result in TBIs;
  • Violence: Assaults, gunshot wounds, and other forms of violence can easily produce TBIs;
  • Work-related accidents: Occupations that involve working at heights or with heavy machinery can have a higher risk of TBI;
  • Child abuse: Conditions like shaken baby syndrome are a particularly concerning cause of TBIs in infants and young children;
  • Concussive/blast injuries: Though somewhat rare, explosions or blast injuries experienced during construction mishaps are also potential sources of TBI.

If you suspect that you or someone you know has suffered a traumatic brain injury, it’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention to make a positive diagnosis and begin treatment.

The Long-Term Effects of a TBI

A traumatic brain injury can present a range of long-term effects, which depend on the severity of the injury, the area of the brain affected, and the individual’s age and overall health.

Some common long-term effects of a TBI can include:

  • Memory problems, difficulty concentrating, and impaired problem-solving skills;
  • Weakness or paralysis in certain areas of the body;
  • Chronic fatigue or sleepiness;
  • Changes in vision, hearing, taste, or smell;
  • Mood swings, irritability, and anxiety;
  • Depression and feelings of sadness or hopelessness;
  • Changes in personality and social behavior;
  • Problems understanding spoken or written language;
  • Increased risk for developing conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders.

The lasting effects of a TBI can have a profound impact on an individual’s daily life, relationships, and ability to work.

How Can I Prove that Negligence Caused My Traumatic Brain Injury?

How Can I Prove that Negligence Caused My Traumatic Brain Injury?

To prove that negligence was the cause of your traumatic brain injury, you must establish four key elements:

  • Duty of care: First, you must demonstrate that the defendant owed you a duty of care, which means they had a responsibility to act in a way that would prevent harm;
  • Breach of duty: Next, you must show that the defendant breached their duty of care by acting negligently or failing to act as a reasonable person would in a similar situation;
  • Causation: You must also indicate a direct link between the defendant’s breach of duty and your TBI; this involves showing that the injury wouldn’t have occurred if not for the defendant’s negligence;
  • Damages: Lastly, you need to demonstrate that you suffered damages as a result of the TBI, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.

Gathering evidence is crucial to proving negligence. Evidence of TBIs and other head injuries can include:

  • Medical records: Documentation of your injury and the treatment you received;
  • Witness statements: Testimonies from people who saw the incident occur;
  • Expert testimony: Opinions from medical experts, accident reconstruction specialists, or other professionals;
  • Photos or videos: Visual evidence of your injuries or the accident scene;
  • Police or incident reports: Official paperwork showing that the accident occurred.

A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can guide you through the process of gathering evidence and building a strong case.
