TBI occurs when the head or neck is violently impacted, causing damage to the brain. They often happen due to motor vehicle accidents or slip-and-fall accidents. TBIs are categorized as mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the seriousness of the injury.
Mild Brain Injury
The symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) may include: loss of consciousness, headaches, blurry vision, sensitivity to light, changes in behavior or mood, dizziness, fatigue, or problems with memory. MBTI symptoms can be subtle and the changes in the person’s behavior may be very difficult to detect.
Severe Brain Injury
Signs of moderate or severe TBI can also include vomiting or nausea, confusion, numbness in the limbs, dilated pupils, or even coma. Patients with severe TBIs usually require intensive rehabilitation care and physical therapy.
A brain injury can have very severe consequences for a victim’s life. The road to recovery can be very long and difficult. Many victims and their loved ones go through a great deal of pain and suffering – both physical and emotional – as a result. In addition, recovery involves long hospital stays, costly medical treatments, and significant time away from work, which can lead to financial hardship for the entire family.

How Can a Brain Injury Lawyer at Kaire & Heffernan Help?
When a person suffers a traumatic brain injury, they may not realize immediately that they sustained such an injury. As a result, the individual might fail to seek medical attention in a timely manner. This could cause irreversible damage to the brain cells, leading to permanent disability or even death.
An experienced brain injury lawyer can file a lawsuit on behalf of the victim to obtain compensation for damages incurred during medical treatment and rehabilitation. If the plaintiff wins their case, they will receive monetary compensation for past medical expenses, future medical bills, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, and more.
