Because they affect the brain, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are as dangerous as they are likely to leave you with unpredictable consequences that are difficult to master. TBIs are generally caused when the brain bounces back and forth within the skull, such as when the head flies forward and backward or from side to side in a car accident. A TBI can leave you facing a lifetime of medical needs and serious emotional consequences, which makes obtaining the skilled legal guidance of an experienced Fort Lauderdale traumatic brain injury attorney an important first step.
The Serious Losses Associated with TBIs
The physical, financial, and emotional losses associated with a TBI of any magnitude are likely to be ongoing in nature, and as such, carefully assessing your losses is paramount.
A TBI can lead to painful headaches and other ongoing physical manifestations of your injury.
The financial losses associated with a TBI are very likely to be ongoing, which makes them difficult to calculate. The unpredictability of these injuries means that the associated financial losses are likely to evolve over time along with your evolving medical needs. Even a relatively minor TBI can seriously interfere with your ability to continue working and growing your career, which can lead to profound financial losses.
TBIs are closely associated with very serious emotional consequences that tend to mimic the signs of PTSD, such as:
- Serious mood swings
- A tendency to self-isolate
- Difficulty connecting
- Noticeable shifts in personality
- Increased anxiety
- Sleep disturbances
- Accident flashbacks
