What are the Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Not every traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the same. Sometimes they are minor. For example, pro football players, or even kids in grade school playing football, can get traumatic injury to the brain anytime they have hard impact against their head as part of the sport. Likewise, many people involved in car accidents can suffer a traumatic brain injury as a result of the impact of the accident. Sometimes the injury is minor, but in many cases, traumatic brain injuries can be very severe and cause permanent problems.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a typical injury in an automobile accident or in an 18-wheeler trucking accident where someone's head hits the dashboard. Even if they have a seat belt on and their head does not hit the dashboard, the contrecoup effect of their brain going back and forth inside their skull can cause a traumatic brain injury.

The effects of traumatic brain injuries are usually long term. Effects include severe headaches, confusion, loss of concentration, memory problems, vision and speech problems, and more. Dealing with traumatic brain injury consists of more than medical treatment. You may need in-home assistance, long-term care, and rehabilitation. You may not be able to work or drive anymore. All these factors make this type of injury very costly.

The important thing is, if you had a traumatic brain injury in an accident, you are likely going to have a lot of expenses, both immediate medical expenses and long term expenses as well.
