Life after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is often never the same. Even those who suffer mild brain injuries can experience troublesome symptoms for the rest of their lives.

Below, our Los Angeles trial attorneys discuss what TBI victims may experience after their injury.

What Causes Traumatic Brain Injuries?

TBIs are the result of a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury. Instances of when these situations may happen include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Auto accidents
  • Bicycle and Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Near drowning events

Will a Traumatic Brain Injury Ever Heal?

Victims who have suffered a TBI face varied prognoses. The prognosis for a TBI depends on a variety of factors.

For many TBI victims, it is rare for them to go back to their life as it was before the injury. Oftentimes, these individuals cannot return to work and require long-term, live-in care. This can amount to substantial medical bills and lost wages.

In addition to the financial cost, TBI victims often experience debilitating emotional and psychological issues, including:

  • Deficits in attention and concentration
  • Aggression and other personality changes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
