Most often caused by a violent blow to the head or jolt to the body, a traumatic brain injury is characterized by some form of damage to the brain. Minor traumatic brain injuries may only affect the brain cells temporarily and may resolve on their own. Severe traumatic brain injuries, which cause bleeding, bruising, or brain cell death, can cause permanent complications, disabilities, and even loss of life.
One of the factors that makes brain injuries so serious is their potential to cause such a wide range of physical and psychological effects. Every single area of a victim’s life may be affected by a traumatic brain injury. The recovery of fair, complete compensation is essential to paving the way to a more stable future.
