Traumatic Brain Injuries

The Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries

When an individual is involved in a serious personal injury accident, and sustains a traumatic brain injury, the magnitude of the damage may take weeks, months or even years to fully diagnose. Since the brain is responsible for many different functions in the body, injury to this area can be devastating and can adversely affect the life of a victim indefinitely. Some of the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries are:

  • Memory loss, can be short or long-term
  •    Feeling anxious or depressed
  •    Behavioral changes
  •    Cognitive deficits
  •    Confusion
  •    Seizures
  •    Vision loss (partial or total)
  •    Hearing loss (partial or total)
  •    Lost or diminished sense of smell
  •    Lost or diminished sense of taste
  •    Coma
  •    Persistent Vegetative State (PVS)

If your family member or someone you care about has recently been involved in a personal injury accident that caused a traumatic or serious brain injury, it is important to discuss the details of the accident and any resulting medical conditions with a competent personal injury lawyer like Robert Rivers. When an accident is caused by another party's negligence,recklessness or carelessness, the responsible party can and should be held liable for their actions, or inaction, whichever the case may be.
