    According to the CDC, slips, trips, and falls account for nearly 50% of all traumatic brain injury (TBI) hospitalizations. Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents account for roughly 20%.

    These injuries can be life-altering. Some brain injury victims undergo symptoms similar to Alzheimers or dementia. Many lose their quality of life.

    That’s why our law firm is dedicated to helping accident victims who have suffered from these injuries.

    Types of Head Injury

    There are three primary types of brain injury.

    Concussions result in the stretching or damaging of brain cells, and can result in the brain undergoing chemical changes.

    Skull fractures involve a literal break in the skull bone.

    An intracranial hematoma (ICH) is a blood clot in and around the brain.

    It’s easy to see how any of these conditions could create massive problems until they heal. Some will never fully heal.

    Effects of TBIs

    TBIs can come with both short-term and long-term effects.

    Short-term effects of head injuries include:

    • Loss of consciousness
    • Short-term amnesia
    • Confusion
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Head pain
    • Loss of balance
    • Nausea
    • Neck pain
    • Ringing ears
    • Slurred speech

    Long-term effects of head injuries include:

    • Mental health challenges and changes, such as depression, anxiety, or irritability
    • Vision problems
    • Motion sickness
    • Loss of taste or smell
    • Light and noise sensitivity
    • Short-term memory problems
    • Insomnia
    • Difficulties thinking or speaking
    • Executive dysfunction
    • Chronic pain or fatigue
    • Hormone dysfunction
    • Autonomic nervous system dysfunction

    Not everyone will fully recover from their brain injuries, even given rehabilitation and time.

    Some brain injuries are so traumatic that it becomes impossible for the victim to resume their normal daily activities, including pursuing a career, studying for a degree, or even handling housework. Some victims are as hampered as an Alzheimer’s or dementia victim. Some experience severe personality changes.

    For these most-severe cases, we work to ensure that victims have the resources they’ll need to live and receive care following their accidents. We also help our clients receive compensation for the quality of life losses they’ve suffered following their accident.

    Average Cost of TBI-Related Health Care

    One of the major reasons to turn to a personal injury firm like ours is that the medical costs for any traumatic brain injury are very high. If someone else’s negligence caused your injury then you shouldn’t have to shoulder these costs on your own.

    First, there’s the initial emergency care. This can cost $150 to $3000 unless you need a craniectomy, which will cost $20,000 to $40,000.

    Then there’s the cost of hospitalization beyond emergency care. If you have a traumatic brain injury, that could mean an average of 3 to 7 days of inpatient care. That could mean additional costs of $12,637 to $28,828.

    Rehabilitation costs about $125 per session, and you could need weekly sessions for at least six months. And these are just the costs if you’re able to regain your independence and productivity. If you require memory care, assisted living, or in-home care after your injury then you can expect to pay even more.

    Fortunately, a successful personal injury case will cover all of these economic losses.
