Traumatic brain injuries have serious, long-term consequences

Injuries to the brain can cause significant problems for the long-term health and wellness of a Connecticut resident. That is because the human brain is the control center of the body, and its functionality impacts the way that practically all other parts of the body operate. When it is damaged due to an impact or penetration injury, the damage can be considered traumatic and the consequences can be dire.

Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild to severe. A mild traumatic brain injury may result in the temporary loss of consciousness, pain and disorientation, nausea, light sensitivity and other transient symptoms. These symptoms may improve with treatment and time.

More severe traumatic brain injuries may not improve. A severe traumatic brain injury may cause a victim to suffer seizures, persistent headaches, loss of body fluids, coma, confusion and loss of coordination. A person who suffers a serious traumatic brain injury may not be able to do their job, support their loved ones, or engage in the types of activities that brought them joy prior to their accident.

Traumatic brain injuries can result from any different forms of accidents. Motor vehicle collisions, bicycle accidents, pedestrian collisions, falls and other incidents can all lead to victims harming their heads and suffering serious injuries to their brains. When traumatic harm is inflicted on a person's brain by a negligent or reckless party, the victim may have options for suing to recover their losses.

The costs associated with traumatic brain injury care can be steep, and victims should not have to pay for their own recoveries when responsibly parties caused them to suffer significant harm. This is where a personal injury action could be beneficial, as it could help an accident victim recover compensation for their losses.
