Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when some type of blow to the head results in swelling, bruising, increased pressure, or microscopic changes in the brain. A TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe depending on the force of the impact, and can lead to minor, temporary aftereffects or unresolved symptoms that last forever.
Despite treatment, people with moderate or severe TBIs generally suffer irreversible brain damage. They may experience severe or ongoing dizziness, headaches, migraines, sensitivity to light and noise, visual problems, fatigue, seizures, sleep problems, emotional problems, and cognitive difficulties, making it difficult or impossible for them to work and participate in normal activities.

How Do Catastrophic Injuries Happen?
Catastrophic injuries are typically caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, slips and falls, industrial accidents, defective product incidents, medical malpractice, and criminal attacks.
Such injuries can impact every aspect of the injured person’s life, rendering employment and independence difficult or impossible. Making any kind of recovery from a catastrophic injury can be a long, involved process that could take months or years.
The medical care required to manage a catastrophic injury is often ongoing, and could include multiple surgeries, rehabilitative care, occupational therapy, physical therapy, PTSD counseling, and more. In such cases, the financial resources available through a personal injury claim become extremely crucial to the injured person as well as his or her family.
