There are currently 5.3 million Americans living with permanent disabilities resulting from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This alarming number does not include untimely deaths as a result of a TBI. Many TBIs are caused by careless conduct, or negligence, which could have been avoided. This careless conduct and negligence leaves victims and their families dealing with the aftermath of such tragedies.
Traumatic Brain Injuries can be classified in three groups:
- Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries: can cause death, coma, permanent vegetative state, chronic under or over arousal, dementia, serious disorders of swallowing or communication, seizures, muscle paralysis, muscle spasticity, abnormal bone growth, apathy, disinhibition, psychosis, criminal violence or suicidality.
- Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries: can cause substantial lifetime impairments of cognitive, visual, motor, emotional, social, sexual or vocational functioning with ongoing need for home assistance, job assistance and therapies.
- Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries: causes headache, fatigue, distractibility and problems with memory, speed of information processing, planning, organization and task execution associated with anxiety, depression, irritability and lost self-confidence.
Damages may include, but not limited to, time off work, lost wages and benefits, hospital and doctor bills, drug costs and therapy costs, pain and suffering including activity restrictions, diminution of quality of life and lost enjoyment of life.
