What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

The CDC defines a traumatic brain injury as a "bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain." While not all blows to the head result in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), there is always danger of a more serious injury when the head or brain is involved.

Identifying Brain Injury Types and Symptoms

There are several types of brain injuries a person can suffer, depending on the circumstances of the accident. A few of the most common types of brain injuries include concussions, contusions, diffuse axonal, and traumatic brain injuries. Acquired brain injuries can also be caused by internal damage and disease, stroke, and tumors.

Many people who have suffered a brain injury are not aware of it right away. If you were involved in an accident, you should seek medical care as soon as possible, even if you do not immediately think you are injured.

A few symptoms of a brain injury include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Thinking slowly
  • Migraines
  • Loss of coordination

What is the Typical Brain Injury Settlement?

While each injury claim is unique, there are certain things that most attorneys and courts will look at when determining how much to award in compensation for a head injury:

  • Medical expenses incurred through treatment (both immediately following the accident and ongoing)
  • Lost wages or earning capacity if you are unable to return to work following your injury
  • Emotional damages including pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental or emotional distress, and loss of companionship or consortium

Long-Term Impact of Brain Injuries: What to Expect

A person's life can be profoundly affected by brain damage in both the short and long terms. Some people may fully recover from a brain injury, while others may have long-term consequences that interfere with their day-to-day activities.

Among the long-term consequences of brain damage are:

  • Persistent migraines or headaches
  • Focus issues or trouble recalling details
  • Emotional instability or mood fluctuations
  • Disruptions to sleep
  • Difficulty speaking or using words
  • Modifications to sensory perception
  • Elevated chance of dementia development

Frequently Asked Questions on Brain Injury Claims

What is the statute of limitations on brain injury cases in Mississippi?

In Mississippi, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years from the date of the accident. However, it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible after the accident to ensure that evidence is preserved and your case is handled in a timely manner.

Can I still file a brain injury claim if the accident was partially my fault?

Yes, even if you contributed to the accident, you may be able to file a claim. Because Mississippi follows a pure comparative negligence rule, the amount of damages you receive may be reduced in proportion to your share of fault. It is crucial to speak with a brain injury lawyer to learn how this may affect your case.

What if the brain injury was caused by medical malpractice?

If it was medical misconduct that resulted in a brain injury, you might be able to sue the accountable healthcare provider. It's crucial to collaborate with a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer because these claims can be complicated and need expert testimony.
