Do you know the implications of suffering a traumatic brain injury? If you were only recently injured in an accident, the ongoing nature of your traumatic brain injury may not have hit home. Further, if your loved one has suffered serious head injury, you could be wondering just how you are expected to care for this continued medical concern. Understanding the attributes of traumatic brain injury can help you and your legal team identify the best approach for obtaining the financial compensation you need and deserve.
So, what exactly is TBI? In most instances, traumatic brain injury is considered an acute injury that damages brain structures. However, it is important to recognize that brain injuries are vastly different from simply suffering a broken bone or skin laceration. Such injuries may hamper your use of a limb, but victims' personalities remain essentially unchanged.
