How do traumatic brain injuries occur?

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we can see that there are around 1.5 million brain injuries that occur every year in the United States. According to the CDC, approximately 50,000 of these brain injury victims are killed, and 85,000 of these victims suffer from long-term disabilities due to their injury.

There are many ways that brain injuries occur. At Paulozzi LPA, our Toledo brain injury lawyers regularly help clients who have sustained injuries due to the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Slip and fall events
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Workplace accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Defective products
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Violence and abuse
  • Medical mistakes
  • Birth injuries

The effects of a brain injury

The effects of brain injuries are wide-ranging and depend on the severity of the initial injury, how quickly a victim receives treatment, and the effectiveness of the medical treatment received. Those who sustain mild traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions, often make a full recovery. However, victims who sustain moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries often suffer from long-term impairments. Our brain injury attorneys regularly help clients who suffer from the following:

  • Full or partial paralysis
  • Muscle stiffness and uncontrolled movements
  • Trouble moving or carrying objects
  • Vision problems and problems focusing
  • Difficulty walking, talking, and swallowing
  • Loss of fine motor skills
  • Difficulty thinking or remembering
  • Advanced cognitive impairment
  • Trouble with social relationships

Traumatic brain injuries can affect every aspect of a person’s life. A brain injury victim is often unable to perform the same activities they were able to before the incident occurred. This can include enjoying hobbies, exercise, spending time with family, and more. Many brain injury victims are also unable to work, which means they will lose the income they need to support themselves and their families.
