Brain injuries can have a dramatic impact on victims and families

Brain injuries can rob victims of their lives and may make family members feel that they have been robbed of their loved ones. Victims may lose their quality of life and family members may find them unrecognizable because of the emotional and personality changes victims may experience. Brain injuries can occur in car accidents and in other ways as well.

In general, a brain injury can be a catastrophic injury for the victim and may lead to disability. The full impact of a brain injury may not be immediately obvious, so it is important to watch for the signs or symptoms of a brain injury, especially following a car accident or other traumatic accident. Brain injury victims can suffer signs and symptoms of brain injuries including: personality changes; irritability; an inability to concentrate; difficulty multitasking; an inability to work; loss of short-term memory; blurred vision, persistent headaches, nausea and other signs and symptoms.

Regardless of the severity of the brain injury the victim has suffered, they may face a life-altering impact on their lives and the lives of their families. Brain injuries are serious injuries and may be difficult and costly to treat. As a result, victims and their families may need help as they struggle with medical expenses, an inability to work and emotional damages. Victims may require rehabilitative care, in-home care and other ongoing and expensive treatments.

When a car accident victim has suffered a brain injury because of the carelessness of a negligent driver, the negligent driver may be required to compensate the victim for the physical, financial and emotional damages suffered. A personal injury claim for damages can help victims and families worry less about their daily needs and focus more on the recovery process.
