Victim of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Let Our North Georgia Workers’ Comp Lawyer Help
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is considered any injury to brain that is
caused by some type of trauma to a person’s head. Even seemingly
minor, closed head injuries can lead to devastating traumatic brain injuries.
It is estimated that around 1.4 million people in America suffer TBI every
year. This is a staggering number, especially considering the amount of
damages TBI victims can face.

Damaging Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Some of the most devastating symptoms of TBI include those that impact
a person’s ability to work, perform daily activities, and engage
in social interactions. People can often find it hard to return to their
old selves, if ever. The impact TBI can have on a person’s cognitive
abilities can be extreme.
The following can be common for victims of TBI:
- Difficulty paying attention or concentrating
- Challenges with processing or understanding information
- Problems with language and communication
- Issues with learning and remembering information
- Struggles with planning and organization
- Problems with reasoning, judgment, and solving puzzles
- Issues with impulsive, erratic behavior
Every injured worker may struggle with different challenges, some facing
a number of these cognitive issues, while others face just one or two.
Even difficulty concentrating on tasks that were once easy to perform
can create huge obstacles for a TBI victim.
