Common Causes Of Traumatic Brain Injury
Some of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury are car accidents, motorcycle accidents, serious slip-and-fall accidents, violence and sports accidents. Ultimately, traumatic brain injury is caused by an external force acting upon the skull and brain, resulting in diminished or incapacitated brain function. When a TBI victim survives the injury, the side effects can range in severity but are generally permanent.
Side effects of TBI include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Short or long-term coma
- Cognitive impairment
- Memory loss
- Lost or diminished speech, hearing, writing and reading skills
- Emotional trauma
- Behavioral changes and problems
- Seizures, fatigue and spatial impairment

How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Traumatic Brain Injury?
Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries often require months or years to fully heal, during which time victims may struggle with many activities they used to take for granted. In some cases, the effects of a brain injury are permanent. The patient can make progress with time and treatment but may not be able to make a full recovery.
Common Causes Of Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries, like traumatic brain injury, are often caused by serious auto accidents and slip-and-fall accidents, and they typically result in paralysis extending from the point of impact. Spinal cord injuries also result in lifelong physical, emotional and financial complications that can further damage the well-being of victims and their families.
Spinal cord injury victims with partial or full paralysis require special wheelchairs and specifically designed vehicles and residences to accommodate their needs; they also require regular physical therapy and even full-time medical care from a nurse or assisted living facility. Living with a spinal cord or traumatic brain injury is devastating enough, but the astronomical financial costs can push victims and families into serious economic crisis. Attorney James Bettersworth wants to make sure this does not happen to you or your family.
How Do You Calculate All The Costs Associated With A Spinal Cord Injury?
Because a spinal cord injury is likely to have lifelong costs in addition to those already incurred, it can be difficult to estimate how much compensation a plaintiff will need. We have considerable experience representing personal injury victims, and we work diligently to anticipate and calculate all likely expenses. We also work to maximize noneconomic damages like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and others.
