Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is one of the leading causes of death and permanent injury in the United States. Although there are many causes of a TBI, one of the most prominent is a violent attack. If you have been a victim of violence that has resulted in a traumatic brain injury, you may have legal options for recovering money for your losses. A personal injury attorney that specializes in Louisiana brain injury cases should review your case to see how you can best protect your legal rights after your brain injury. Contact the experienced team at Cueria Law Firm to discuss your case today. 

Traumatic brain injuries result in millions of hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and deaths each year in the United States. The brain is the control center for our motor, emotional, cognitive, and sensory functions. When the delicate brain tissue is injured, the effects can be devastating to the injury victim, resulting in debilitating and often permanent disability. In a traumatic brain injury, the brain is bruised or penetrated by a sharp blow that can cause contusions, swelling, bleeding, and tears that disrupt the normal function of the brain. 

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury can result from any number of causes. Some of the most common causes of TBI in the United States include: 

  • Falls 
  • Motor vehicle or motorcycle accidents 
  • Sports or other recreational activities  
  • Military bombings 
  • Gunshots 

Violent attacks and assaults are also included in the list as one of the top four causes of TBI. The head and neck are particularly vulnerable to attacks such as punches, strangulations, falls to the ground, or strikes with blunt objects. A violent attack on the head can leave the victim with life-changing deficits that will impact the way they think, communicate, behave, and function. It is common for people who suffered a traumatic brain injury to experience some or all of the following symptoms after their injury: 

  • Communication difficulties in speech and language 
  • Emotional deregulation and difficulty expressing and managing strong emotions
  • Loss of sensations such as smell, taste, and touch
  • Cognitive delays in memory, processing, and reasoning 

TBI and Domestic Violence 

It is estimated that domestic violence affects about 10 million people every year, with injuries to the head and neck most commonly reported. Many TBI victims do not seek medical attention for their injuries because they are in a state of fear. Often there is no outward sign of injury, even though damage has occurred to the brain due to repeated blows. In many cases the victims, their health care providers, and even their family members are not aware that the symptoms they are experiencing are the result of a traumatic brain injury. If you are a victim of domestic violence, seek help and resources in your community right away. 

It is common for TBI victims to present with some of the following symptoms due to abuse or assault: 

  • Agitation and anger
  • Depression 
  • Confusion and forgetfulness
  • Slurred speech 
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Lack of coordination

A violent assault is terrifying and stressful in itself. If you have sustained a traumatic brain injury due to a violent attack or assault, navigating the legal system may prove to be too stressful to handle on your own. You and your loved ones will already be dealing with the physical and emotional impact of the injury on your family. 

You need a trusted and knowledgeable partner by your side to help you through this difficult time. Contact the professional brain injury attorneys at Cueria Law Firm for a consultation today.
