Causes of Brain Injuries
Any impact that jars the brain can cause a brain injury. Brain injuries are common in motor vehicle accidents, but they can also occur in slip-and-fall accidents or on the athletic field. The lawyers at the Karl Truman Law Office are dedicated to representing those who suffered brain injuries due to:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Tractor-trailer accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
The Costs of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can range from the relatively minor, such as mild concussions, to severe, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The consequences of any brain injury can be lasting and far-reaching.
Brain injuries may result in:
- Physical problems such as chronic headaches or dizziness
- Cognitive problems such as memory loss or impaired decision-making abilities
- Sensory problems such as hearing loss or blurred vision
- Behavioral changes such as depression and mood swings
The CDC estimates that the cost of caring for a survivor of brain injury is $600,000 to $1,875,000 over the course of a lifetime. This cost does not include immediate medical care, nor does it take into account lost wages or the physical and emotional damages suffered by victims of this debilitating injury.
