What is it like to live with a traumatic brain injury?

Those in Arizona and elsewhere who have suffered or are living with someone with a brain injury may find that their lives have dramatically changed. Living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is not as easy feat. Every injury is different, as are the problems that it can cause.

In Arizona, it is believed that over 45,000 individuals are currently living with a TBI. These can cause numerous physical, mental and behavioral problems. Some of these include:

  • Memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Slow reaction times
  • Depression
  • Emotional instability
  • Difficulty communicating

The level at which any of these or the other issues associated with a TBI will vary from person to person. There are those individuals who will be able to recover some or all function with rehabilitation and therapy treatments -- making it possible to return to a fairly normal life. There are those, though, who will not, and who will struggle with day-to-day living. Many of the side-effects of a TBI can make it impossible to go to work, take care of one's family or even take care of oneself.

Even if severe physical impairment is not suffered after a traumatic brain injury, dealing with depression, pain, learning and communication problems and such can certainly take a toll. Those who have suffered any form of TBI due to another individual's negligence may be entitled to compensation for their financial, physical and emotional losses. Personal injury claims, filed and successfully litigated in an Arizona civil court, can result in brain injury victims receiving monetary damages.
