The damage from a brain injury often happens in a matter of seconds, and its effects will persist for the remainder of the victim’s life. When head and brain injuries are not fatal, the survivors are still left with permanent disabilities that can often prevent them from working or from being able to care for themselves.

There are two main ways that negligence can cause brain injury: through traumatic injury and medical malpractice. Traumatic injury causes brain injury when there is some sort of impact to the head or a violent accident that causes brain damage. These types of injuries can come from car accidents, fall injuries, work accidents, or any other type of accident. On the other hand, sometimes medical mistakes can cause brain injuries, such as untreated or misdiagnosed infections, birth injuries, or deprivation of oxygen to the brain. Regardless of the underlying cause, all brain injuries are serious and require immediate medical treatment in order to stop the swelling in the brain from causing any further damage.
Whether a traumatic brain injury (also known as a TBI) or brain damage from medical negligence, all of these injuries have serious and life-altering consequences to the victim. No two brain injuries are exactly the same, because the individual’s personal characteristics, area of the brain affected, and the severity of the damage all vary greatly.
However, some of the permanent effects of a brain injury include:
While these are only a selection of some of the permanent effects of brain injury, they are an indication of the seriousness of these conditions and the level of care that brain-injured persons require after their injuries. While some patients are able to relearn some of their abilities, most brain injured victims never recover.
The more serious injuries are, the more expensive they tend to be to treat. Brain injuries often require costly surgeries and other medical treatment that you may not be prepared to pay for.
