A blow to the head or a piercing injury to the head can be catastrophic for the victim and his/her family. Some people suffer traumatic brain injuries due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your damages. An experienced traumatic brain injury attorney such as Michael V. Barszcz, M.D., J.D., in Orlando, Florida can advise you of your rights and inform you of your legal options.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is sometimes referred to as “acquired brain injury” and occurs when a sudden trauma, such as a blow to the head, causes damage to the brain. TBI’s can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object actually pierces the skull and enters the tissue of the brain. Needless to say, a traumatic brain injury can be catastrophic to the victim and can permanently alter life as you knew it. TBI victims often need round-the-clock care for the rest of their lives.

Why hire an attorney who’s also a medical doctor?
When the stakes are high, EVERY MOVE MATTERS.

Degrees of TBI

Traumatic brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe. The symptoms of each type of injury will vary. With a mild brain injury, the victim may experience:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Fatigue
  • Lethargy
  • Mood changes

With a more severe brain injury, the symptoms become much more serious and pronounced:

  • Confusion
  • Speech changes
  • Behavioral changes
  • Convulsions
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Inability to awaken from sleep
  • Slurred speech
  • Agitation

TBI Treatments

People suffering a traumatic brain injury should receive medical attention as soon as possible. Keep in mind that little can be done to reverse permanent damage done to the brain, so medical personnel must focus their efforts on preventing further damage to the brain. Moderate to severely brain injured victims may need treatment in the form of physical rehabilitation, occupational rehabilitation, speech therapy, psychological treatment and social support. There are many support groups to help families and victims deal with the devastating effects of a brain injury.
