Traumatic Brain Injuries
When it comes to diagnosing traumatic brain injuries, called TBIs, the level of injury will be classified as either mild, severe, or catastrophic in nature. The diagnosis is partially impacted by the level of disruption in the normal life and brain function of the victim.
Braff Injury Trial Law Group have a team of personal injury lawyers that have seen a wide variety of traumatic brain injuries. Some people never recover from their injuries and must learn to live with their new level of abilities which may be significantly lower than what they had. Other victims of TBIs can recover during the first two to three years after the accident.
Victims of TBIs suffer emotional, physical, and cognitive impairments. Sometimes these impairments are live long with no chance of improvement. Other times the victim may fully recover or recover to the point where the impairments don’t have a big impact on their quality of life. Regardless of the length the person experiences the impairment, the victim often becomes frustrated and isolated with reduced concentration abilities, memory function and may withdraw from other people.
Injuries to the Spinal Cord
Braff Injury Trial Law Group has handled innumerable lawsuits for people that were injured with spinal cord damage, as well. This kind of trauma to the spine means a vertebra gets fractured through a blow to the spine. This results in short-term or permanent changes to the spinal function which means the person may experience loss of muscle function and nerve sensations that leads to numbness or pain.
