Someone in the U.S. suffers a traumatic brain injury every 21 seconds, according to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIA). About 1.4 million people sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury each year in the United States alone.
Impairments Due To Traumatic Brain Injuries
The Law Offices of Kevin Kurgis acknowledge the many and varied complications that can come to light as a result of traumatic brain injuries. In broad terms, brain injury can affect you or your loved one’s cognitive, emotional, and physical traits, which can drastically alter personhood.
Many of the clients we serve have experienced significant impacts on their cognitive, emotional, and physical functioning as a result of their brain trauma. Below is just a partial list of some of the challenges our clients have faced that lead them to seek legal representation. Consider scheduling a consultation with us if any of these issues sound familiar.
Possible Cognitive Impairments of Traumatic Brain Injuries
● Memory loss and difficulty remembering new data
● A change in problem-solving skills and ability
● Poor judgment and potential decline in impulse control
Possible Emotional Impairments of Traumatic Brain Injuries
● Irritability, anger, and even aggression
● An inability to control emotions
Possible Physical Consequences of Traumatic Brain Injuries
● Weakness or loss of use of muscles or muscle groups
● Sexual dysfunction
Due to the severe nature of traumatic brain injuries, recovery is generally lengthy. Some people never fully recover. The resulting cognitive, emotional, and physical consequences do not just impact the person; they affect the entire family.
The injured are not able to do the same things they once were and sometimes suffer irreparable damage. These injuries often require that family members shoulder the burden of providing care, which can be stressful and overwhelming.
Financial Burden of Direct Service
It is often necessary to engage the help of specialists, which can be very expensive over time, especially if the injury was not initially appropriately addressed. Examples of specialized services that can create financial hardship include:
● Physical and occupational therapists
● Speech pathologists
● Vocational rehabilitationists
● Pain management providers
The cost to manage all aspects of traumatic brain injuries can create an immense financial burden. The pain, stress, and suffering of navigating the injury itself is a trial without the compounding effects of accumulating expenses.
