What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A blow to the head that is severe enough to cause disruption in brain function causes a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Traumatic brain injuries can also occur from rapid, back-and-forth movement of the brain within the skull. This movement is what damages the brain in cases of shaken baby syndrome and in whiplash injuries that result in TBIs.
What Are the Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injury symptoms can range from a bad headache to coma and death. Many people are left with permanent damage to areas of the brain that control thinking, reasoning, speech and memory. Behavioral and emotional changes are common among people with brain injuries. The symptoms depend on where the brain was injured. For example, occipital lobe injuries have different symptoms and effects than a frontal lobe injury or temporal lobe injury. Some are more serious than others.
Why Are TBIs Legally Challenging?
Proving the damages caused by a brain injury can be difficult. In many cases, people with brain injuries appear to be just fine, when they are actually so brain damaged they are unable to work and earn a living or, in some cases, even care for themselves. This damage does not show up on brain imaging tests like CT scans and MRIs.
Our Philadelphia brain injury lawyers work with top medical experts and neuropsychologists to document the damages caused by brain injuries. We will also interview people who knew the person before and after the accident and ask them to describe differences they have observed.
