Recognizing the Severity of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Even the smallest occurrence of negligence can leave you suffering significant harm in the form of a traumatic brain injury. For instance, you may slip on spilled liquid in a grocery store, fall to the ground, and slam the back of your head. This alone can cause long-term problems.

Unfortunately, there are countless new cases each year of individuals suffering TBIs, and it’s vital for you to recognize your rights if you’re one of them. This means understanding the severities and long-term damages that make it necessary to pursue compensation.

Labeling the Severity of TBIs

There are three main categories in which traumatic brain injuries are placed: mild, moderate, and severe. Each of these is determined based on the symptoms experienced, and there are many tests that indicate just how severe a TBI is by how you are reacting to certain functions (eye opening, verbal responses, motor function, etc.).

Unfortunately, suffering a traumatic brain injury often means suffering from long-term problems regarding basic functionality. While minor brain injuries like concussions can exhibit short-term symptoms, more severe brain injuries can impact you your entire life.

Long-Term Problems of TBIs

The more severe a TBI is, the more it can impact your life. Some of the long-term problems associated with this kind of injury include the following:

  • Cognitive issues that make it difficult to focus and concentrate
  • Physical issues including balance and coordination problems, as well as possible seizures and convulsions
  • Sensory damage including ringing in the ears or blurred vision
