What is a Traumatic Brain Injury Anyways?

TBI, or traumatic brain injury, is a critical condition that is commonly seen and dealt with by attorneys across the country. This phrase is used to describe any and all conditions dealing with the brain that affects how it operates. Any condition that causes deviance in how the brain works may be considered a TBI. This may come as a result of a blow to the head, the cracking of a skull, or a severe impact on the neck. This may alter someone’s ability to physically or mentally perform everyday functions. TBIs may happen at work, school, at an amusement park, or even on someone else’s private property.

The Serious Impacts of an Injury to the Brain

While effects can range in severity, they are oftentimes extremely grave and may even jeopardize the life of the victim. TBIs may even have some hidden costs such as those incurred after worsening performance at a job or in a similar setting.

  • Untimely death: It has been proven that TBIs may negatively impact the victim by shortening their lifespan or even ending their life. With such an important organ coming under attack by severe outside forces, it is possible for one to lose their life sooner than expected.
  • Negatively impacted mobility or motor function: Swallowing, running, cleaning the dishes, and other simple functions of everyday life may be jeopardized by a TBI. In addition to motor functions, one’s ability to see, feel, and hear may also come under duress.
  • Loss of income and employability: These same issues come with even more consequences. With the loss of common abilities, it is often the case that someone has a harder time finding a job and may even be fired from their current one. In the world of law, this is commonly referred to as loss of income.
  • Emotional damage and that to relationships: Someone suffering from a TBI may also have difficulties navigating relationships that they are no longer able to maintain. This is common and may come as a result of decreased mobility and mental capacity.
  • Financial hardship: Amongst all of the other issues that someone may have with a TBI, they may also be dealing with financial difficulties from hospital bills, fees incurred during physical rehabilitation, and visits to specialists.
