Any brain injury can have a very serious impact on your life, on you, and on the people who care about you. Even if the doctors call it a “mild” brain injury. Even if you seem OK in the days or weeks after the accident that caused your injury. Brain injuries are unpredictable, the brain is still a medical mystery. The effects of brain injuries aren’t always obvious – you might not tie the stuff that’s happening to you to the accident. You might not even realize that you suffered a brain injury, especially if you didn’t hit your head or you had other serious injuries to contend with.
Please, take a look at this infographic to learn more about how brain injuries can impact your life and get an idea of whether what you are experiencing may be connected to your accident.
Brain Injuries are Deceiving
First of all, you can incur a traumatic brain injury (TBI) without a blow to the head. Extreme forces to the body can slam your jiggly brain up against the inside of your skull, or send it twisting and tearing, doing damage that stays with you for a lifetime.
Second, the term “mild” is dangerously misleading to patients and loved ones when it comes to brain injuries. Medically speaking, “mild” only refers to the initial results of the brain injury, loss of consciousness, and that sort of thing. It does not tell you what to expect long-term. It doesn’t refer to the functions that will be affected or the extent to which they will be affected.
The Compensation You Need for The Harm You Have Suffered
Brain injuries can affect every aspect of your life. From your ability to perform t work and earn a living, to the quality of your relationships. When someone else’s negligence changes your life forever, you deserve fair compensation. But the effects of brain injuries can be hard to prove.
Please, don’t miss out on the compensation that you and the people who love you need and deserve. Talk to an experienced brain injury attorney today to schedule your free initial consultation.
