The human body is an amazing piece of machinery, but when something happens to the control center, it can completely change our lives. When it comes to head injuries, they must be taken seriously. A traumatic brain injury can be devastating, even if it seems minor at first.

At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we know that the last thing you expected was to be dealing with an injury like this, whether it has happened to you or someone you love. When you need a Bellevue traumatic brain injury attorney, call us today.

What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

There is often confusion around what constitutes a traumatic brain injury. Simply put, any head injury that causes the brain stress can be a traumatic brain injury. Yes, some are milder than others, but even they can become severe if not properly diagnosed and treated.

Anytime someone receives a blow to the head, they need to be aware that there could be damage. The most common form of a TBI, and one that has begun to receive more and more attention, is a concussion.

Handling Concussions

Each year, there are around 1.6 to 3.8 million sports-related concussions. These primarily occur in middle and high school athletes, whether they are playing recreational sports or with an organized school team. If a coach does not follow proper procedures in the event that a player receives a blow to the head, the injury could become much worse.

How?

Because, concussion injuries can be cumulative, meaning that another hit that occurs before the brain has completely healed could make the damage exponentially worse. A concussion could become a more severe traumatic brain injury.

Other Causes

There are more than 5.3 million people living with disabilities caused by TBIs in the United States. How do they happen?

  • car accidents
  • firearms incidents
  • sports incidents
  • falls and falling objects
  • and other violence

When someone suffers from a serious TBI, they usually require emergency and extended care. Often, long-term rehabilitation is necessary for a person to recover. There are times when a person suffers from permanent cognitive, speech, and mobility problems in the aftermath of a TBI.

The costs of these injuries extend beyond medical expenses. The TBI victim is often not able to work and will lose their income and benefits, something that can affect entire families.

What Happens Next?

Suffering from a traumatic brain injury, or watching someone you love suffer from one, is incredibly difficult. Making things worse are the medical bills that will start to come in. At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we want to help you and your family through this by ensuring you have the compensation you need for all of your accident-related expenses. Not only does this include medical expenses, but other hidden costs as well (lost wages and benefits, pain and suffering, etc.).
