What if you suffer a traumatic brain injury in an accident?

There are many different types of injuries that Chicago area residents might suffer in an accident, but a traumatic brain injury is probably one of the most debilitating in the long-term. Sure, broken bones and lacerations take a long time to heal, but a traumatic brain injury - or "TBI" - might never fully heal. So, what can our readers expect if they or a loved one suffers a TBI in an accident?

For starters, it is important to recognize that the severity of each TBI can vary. Some TBIs might be considered "mild" or "moderate," while others are categorized as "severe." However, even with a mild TBI, the symptoms of the injury can be difficult. Such symptoms might include headaches, nausea, fatigue, trouble sleeping, dizziness and even enhanced sensitivity to stimuli in the environment around the person such as sounds or lights.

With a "moderate" TBI, all of those symptoms can be present as well and can include even more significant symptoms, such as unconsciousness, numbness in extremities and even seizures. "Severe" TBIs are obviously the worst version of this type of injury and can include confusion, slurred speech and even instances where the victim is in a coma for a period of time.

Any Chicago area residents who have suffered a TBI of any degree in an accident caused by another party may be able to pursue financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. Getting the right information about the legal options that are available is important in these situations.
