Every day, thousands of ordinary Virginians struggle with the consequences of traumatic brain injury. Although the condition may not always be detected immediately, it can bring untold misery to victims and their families. Insurers and responsible parties may try to claim that the loss of memory or personality and behavioral changes that can result from a head injury are not linked to a specific incident. This is why cases involving victims of traumatic brain injury are particularly difficult to litigate without expert assistance.
There are many possible causes for traumatic brain injury. However, the underlying problems associated with this debilitating condition are difficult, regardless of the cause.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, an estimated 235,000 people in the US are hospitalized due to brain injuries every year, and 1 in every 50 people in Virginia currently needs lifelong help as a result of brain injury. Hospitals in Virginia deal daily with traumatic brain injury sufferers as a result of:
- Automobile accidents
- Struck by or against an object
Whatever the cause, the results of traumatic brain injury can be life-changing. Victims may require round-the-clock brain injury treatment, be unable to work or follow their previous lifestyle, putting immense strain on victims and their loved ones who must try to pick up the pieces. Relationships can be changed forever, and insurers are reluctant to recognize the true impact of traumatic brain injury when considering claims.
Victims may suffer a variety of the following symptoms:
- Continual headaches
- Memory loss
- Difficulty with verbal or motor control
- Behavioral problems and sudden mood swings
- Visual and aural difficulties
