Catastrophic injuries include traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries have gotten a lot of attention lately in the context of sports injuries. While those who play sports like football can certainly suffer a brain injury, they are not, by any stretch of the imagination, the only people who suffer from these catastrophic injuries. In fact, individuals in Florida who are involved in car accidents, which encompasses a much wider population than football players, can be at a significant risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury.

As with any other injury, brain injuries can fall on a spectrum of severity. On the more minor end, a brain injury can leave a victim with a headache, nausea, fatigue and loss of balance. It can also affect one's ability to concentrate and remember things, and one may experience changes to one's mood. There may also be light sensitivity, ringing in the ears and changes to one's sense of smell and taste.

On the other end of the spectrum are severe traumatic brain injuries. These can result in seizures, a continuous headache, unconsciousness, leaking of fluid from the ears, numbness and loss of coordination. Those who suffer a severe brain injury can also find themselves experiencing extreme confusion, difficulty speaking clearly, and, in the worst cases, coma.

Sadly, many individuals who suffer a traumatic brain injury are affected for the rest of their lives. They may require extensive medical treatment, including rehabilitation that may be necessary to try to redevelop motor skills. Sometimes, victims are unable to fully recover, which can severely limit their day-to-day activities. This can be emotionally and financially devastating.

Although it may not be possible to fully recover after one of these injuries, it may be possible in some cases to impose liability, obtain a sense of justice and recover compensation. To do so requires taking legal action against the negligent individual who caused the accident in question and, as a result, the injuries suffered. Brain injury victims may be able to work with professionals to learn more about how to proceed with one of these claims in hopes of recovering as much of their life as possible.
