Each year, there are an estimated 4.6 million people impacted by Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in Canada and the United States.
One of the leading causes of TBI is concussions. Most of us who have experienced trauma from an injury, fall, or car accident do not look for the signs and symptoms of TBI because they can be very mild initially.
It is crucial to understand the need to take any injury seriously so you can act quickly, especially a concussion, which can stem from TBI.
TBIs stem from a concussion or your head being violently jolted. TBI can also result from a bullet or anything sharp used as a weapon to shatter pieces of a personal skull.
Brain injuries and their symptoms or signs are still being researched, which means there is still no permanent or concise list created to give us 100% of the ways TBI will affect an individual.
Nevertheless, there is still an established list of what happens when trauma impacts the brain and what signs you need to take seriously.
What Should You Be Aware of With Trauma and The Brain?
Below are some of the most common TBI symptoms you may experience and should take seriously:
* A severe headache or migraine
* Numbing of toes and fingers
* Feeling nauseous or having continual vomiting spells
* Feeling confused and speech is slurred
* Seizures or convulsions
* Loss of coordination
* Clear fluid that begins to drain from the nose or ears
Head Injury Lawyers and their Help with Compensatory Damages
The majority of head injuries occur as a result of car or motorcycle accidents, falls, blunt or traumatic head wounds, accidents, or violence. Seeking the advice of a traumatic head injury attorney is your next best step if you want to know if you are eligible for any head injury compensatory damage. Most brain injuries are classified as statutory accident benefits, including medical and rehabilitation costs.
All the TBI loss categories are intended to help you replace any financial loss you’ve suffered as a result of your serious head injury. These losses also include property damage, funeral expenses, and the costs of what is considered monetary loss replacement. The more difficult damages to calculate usually involve abstract or less tangible losses with infinite value.
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all monetary loss figure for non-economic damages. These include mental anguish caused by the loss of companionship, pain, suffering, or emotional distress. There is also no clear-cut formula for assessing and calculating the damages you may be entitled to as a result of your brain injury.
