Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a form of brain damage caused by a blow to the head or a forceful impact to the body which causes the brain to collide with the skull. Every year about 1.4 million Americans suffer from traumatic brain injuries. The consequences can range from mild, temporary changes in cognitive functioning, to permanent disability and even death.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a head injury due to the negligence of another, there is a strong chance you qualify to receive financial compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses. Call the personal injury lawyer Orlando turns to for compassionate and aggressive legal counsel. Call Attorney Todd Miner today.

TBI and Mental Health

Many people who suffer from traumatic brain injuries experience negative ramifications which seriously disrupt their lives, as well as the lives of their family and friends. Psychological conditions that can be caused or exacerbated by a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Reduced control over one’s emotions or impulses
  • Depression (debilitating sorrow, loss of enthusiasm in one’s life, persistent feelings of hopelessness, etc.)
  • Mania (a mental state marked by impulsiveness, racing thoughts, and frequent aggression)
  • Severe mood swings
  • Hallucinations (usually auditory, sometimes visual)
  • Delusions
  • New and persistent phobias
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

Patients lacking a proper support system can have a very difficult time managing such extreme changes in their lives. As a result, they can be at an increased risk for drug or alcohol addiction, and dangerous behaviors that can lead to criminal charges. Unfortunately, studies suggest that up to 40% of TBI victims are not receiving the full support and rehabilitative treatment they need.
