Can mild brain injuries cause serious damage?

Brain injuries can be extremely debilitating. Whether you obtained brain trauma from a slip-and-fall accident or you were involved in a car collision, you may suffer from the serious side effects of the injury. While more attention has been focused on the implications of moderate to severe brain injuries, a study looked at the effects of mild brain injuries` and their potential for causing long-term damage.

TBIs and PTSD: the perfect storm

At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC, in Louisiana, we help people who have sustained serious injuries as the result of someone’s negligence or misconduct. Sometimes our clients suffer from several injuries, which makes life especially difficult for them. If you suffer from both a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, you know exactly what we mean.

Returning to work with a brain injury

While some people who suffer from a brain injury will never be able to return to their former occupations, a number of people in Louisiana and around the United States will be able to go back to work following a recovery period. Going back to work after suffering brain trauma can be difficult. Not only is it possible that the worker’s brain has changed in its ability to reason, plan, organize and function, but their personality and mood may have changed as well. Depending on its severity and the area of the brain that was affected, brain trauma can affect a wide-range of physical and psychological abilities.

Tips for the TBI caregiver

Traumatic brain injury is a term that has gotten a lot more recognition in recent years thanks to the National Football League and its players who have shed light on lasting effects of head trauma. The Family Caregiver Alliance announced in 2015 that about two percent of the U.S. population lives with the effects of brain injury. In Louisiana, those who have family members or friends whom brain injuries have impacted may find the following information useful. 

Recognizing symptoms of brain injury

If you or someone you love in Louisiana suffers a blow to the head, the injuries may prove minor, requiring little, if any medical treatment, or they can prove catastrophic, leading you or your loved one to require a lifetime of ‘round-the-clock care. Recognizing the severity of the injury suffered can help you make important decisions about future care and treatment, as mild, moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries can impact your life in varying ways. At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., we understand how devastating brain injuries often are, and we have helped many clients whose quality of life suffered following a head injury caused by another’s negligence.
