No matter what type of injury that results from a personal injury incident, it is devastating and stressful for the victim and his or her family. There are some categories of injuries, however, that have a life-altering impact on the victim and his or her loved ones. Perhaps one of the most severe and catastrophic injuries that you can experience is a brain injury, which can result in cognitive impairments, paralysis, or even death. Brain injuries can result from almost any type of personal injury incidents, including motor vehicle collisions, tractor-trailer wrecks and premise liability situations such as where a store owner failed to maintain a safe premises for customers of their shop or store and injury resulted.
Brain injuries range from what some might categorize as a mild TBI (traumatic brain injury) to death. The public at large is finally becoming more aware of the danger and harm and lasting effects of concussions and post-concussive syndrome (which many deem to fall into the mild TBI category, though injuries to one’s brain are becoming more and more identified as being irreparable harm to the brain) due in large part to the publicity of the class action case against the NFL and the large sums of money that are being discussed and the resultant publicity.
Regardless of the severity of a brain injury, no one can disagree with the significance it has upon the injured victim’s life.
Imagine you are the following person:
“I was driving with my young child so that I could take him to get a toy for doing his chores for the week, and as I was turning in an intersection, with the green light in my direction ---BOOM--- a reckless driver collided into the side of my vehicle. At least that is what I was told because all I remember is that I was taking my son to get a toy…then black, everything else had to be told to me because I don’t remember. Apparently another car drove through the red light and into our car at a high rate of speed and caused my head to be impacted in the process. Again, I don’t remember any of this. However, the doctors told me that the bleeding on my brain has stopped, so that is promising, I guess. But, what is not promising is that I can’t remember anything, my headaches won’t stop, I can’t maintain my balance, I am constantly dizzy, and I am being told I am lucky that it wasn’t worse and that despite the fact that there is irreparable harm to my brain that I should be able to regain most normal functioning in the next twelve months or so. What can I do? Why did this happen?”
