Devastating Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries


A loved one suffered a severe traumatic brain injury in a motor vehicle collision, what can we do?

The first step for anyone suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), whatever the cause, is to seek immediate medical assistance.  Symptoms of TBI's include, but are not limited to, headaches, dizziness, amnesia, sensitivity to light (photophobia), sensitivity to sound (phonophobia), irritability, decreased concentration, depression, impulse control problems, attention deficit disorder, and a host of other complications.  Physicians can perform appropriate diagnostic testing, prescribe medications aimed at relieving the symptoms of a TBI, and place patients in appropriate therapy programs aimed at returning them to their pre-accident state of mental health.

For those that suffer TBI's in the context of motor vehicle accidents, trucking collisions, motorcycle collisions, construction accidents, or otherwise, contacting a lawyer is a vital next step.  TBI's can have devastating, life long impacts upon injury victims.

Dealing with Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are extremely serious and debilitating.  Recently, the NFL concussion litigation has provided a profound example of how head injuries of this sort can have catastrophic, lifelong impacts upon even the most elite athletes.  Memory loss, confusion, insomnia, rapid mood swings, and inability to concentrate are but a very few symptoms that can accompany a TBI.

Individuals who experience a traumatic brain injury as a result of an accident caused by a third party are entitled to compensation so that they can obtain any and all necessary medical care to remedy their symptoms to the greatest extent possible.  No one should be forced to live the rest of their life in a decreased cognitive state and at risk for future impairments such as early onset dementia due to a severe head injury.  

Accident victims should stay vigilant for signs that they have experienced a traumatic brain injury, and should also contact experienced attorneys in order to obtain the compensation necessary to safeguard their future.  At Ryan, Ryan & Landa, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to accomplish that goal.
