Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, often results from a car crash, fall, or construction accident, among other forms of trauma. In Southwest Florida—Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Sanibel, Captiva, Bonita Springs, Estero, Naples, Lehigh Acres, LaBelle, Fort Myers Beach, Marco Island, Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Venice—we share our share of these tragic harms and losses.
Brain damage often results in profound deficits. Accordingly, knowledge, memory, and motor skills face limits or gaps. Moreover, daily life suffers significantly by brain signal limits and interruptions.
TBI Leads to Permanent Impairment
TBI occurs when a person’s head encounters a traumatic force. For example, in an auto accident, this force comes from a direct impact. Especially relevant, striking a vehicle seat back, dashboard, or other object. TBI may result from indirect impact. Known as acceleration or deceleration, your head swings back and forth shearing brain inside your skull.
TBI examples outside a motor vehicle crash context include a construction accident where a worker falls from a roof or scaffolding. In a fall, the person may strike his head on the ground or fixed object, easily damaging brain tissue. Consequently, there is a decrease in normal brain functioning.
In TBI, or severe brain injury, there are often more long-term deficiencies. Moreover, these begin with one or more symptoms:
- Difficulty speaking or inability to speak
- Hearing loss
- Facial nerve paralysis
- Arm or leg paralysis
- Weakness in arms or legs
- Shortness of breath
- Irregular heart patterns
TBI commonly results from motor vehicle collisions, serious falls, or child abuse. As your brain injury lawyer, I stand by you and your family moving forward for lifetime compensation.
Mild TBI Leads to Big Challenges
Mild traumatic brain injury (also known as MTBI) refers to brain damage with fewer profound deficits. However, lifetime consequences still exist. Moreover, damage remains severe.
But, differences between TBI and MTBI often relate to health management. MTBI conditions have more successful management through medication, therapy, and rehabilitation.
MTBI symptoms may initially include:
- Losing consciousness
- Persistent headache
- Change in personality
- Memory loss
- Loss of balance
- Blurred vision
- Mood changes
- Difficulty with concentration
In mild TBI, deficits and disorders are typically permanent. However, because symptoms vary, insurance companies often seek to minimize your hardship. As your lawyer, I fight back.
TBI Victims Should Have a Clear Voice in Advocacy
Brain damage caused by trauma is often fatal. But, survivors forever deal with severe disability and impairments. Moreover, family members and other loved ones must pick up the pieces and help survivors lead fulfilling lives.
