Any kind of physical injury can have an impact on a person’s life. Bruises, sprains, and broken bones to any body part can be painful and take time to heal. However, those types of injuries are likely to eventually heal and allow you to get back to your normal life. But a brain injury might not heal the same way, and you could never get back to how you were before the injury.

When you suffer from a brain injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to worry about the costs associated with your recovery. These injuries can be debilitating and life-changing, so the person who caused your injury should be held accountable for their actions. Your Cincinnati brain injury lawyer from Thomas Law Offices can help you recover financially from your injuries while you focus on recovering physically and emotionally.

What Does the NFL Do When a Player Gets a Serious Concussion?

It’s no secret that football can be a dangerous sport. Because of this, the NFL has taken steps to ensure any player with a concussion is tended to as quickly as possible. This is done to prevent further brain injury. Over the years, a number of modifications have been made to their medical emergency protocols. These protocols reflect the most up-to-date medical consensus on the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of a head injury.

One of the most difficult things to prove in any type of personal injury case is that my client has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), especially when the “expected” signs and symptoms are not apparent. When we think of traumatic brain injury, we conjure up images of someone not being able to talk, walk, or perform basic daily tasks.  While some people who suffer from traumatic brain injuries unfortunately experience these life-altering disabilities, many people who experience a TBI face less obvious, yet still very challenging effects.

In trying to show an insurance adjuster or a jury that my client has symptoms of TBI, I can point to references in medical records and I can rely upon testimony from family and friends who knew the person before and after the injury.  Oftentimes this testimony reveals that the person is more forgetful, is more anxious, is more angry, and gets easily frustrated.  We learn that the person used to act one way and now acts another, as if his whole personality is changed, many times for the worse.

Football Isn’t the Only Sport Where Players Get Concussions

Many people associate football with concussions, and how couldn’t they? The entire game is focused on tackling players. While the N.F.L.’s research that downplays the occurrence of concussions has earned plenty of scrutiny, people are at least aware of the connection between this sport and head injuries.

The impact from tackling in football can cause concussions, but there are plenty of other sports and situations where one can get a traumatic brain injury. If you’ve been injured and have a concussion, a Louisville brain injury lawyer from Thomas Law Offices can help you get compensation for your injuries. We understand how severe brain injuries can affect you and your life. We’re ready to fight for your rights and get you a favorable settlement.

The Difference Between a TBI and a Concussion

Published on Dec 15, 2016 at 12:00 pm in Brain Injury.

The brain is one of the most fragile areas of the body. Any injuries it sustains can lead to serious, lifelong complications. Extremely serious brain injuries, often referred to as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), are usually caused by trauma that results in unconsciousness. There’s another type of brain injury that’s slightly less severe and therefore less obvious. This type of injury, despite being more minor, can still be dangerous. Its symptoms can take years to present themselves, but they are no less deadly or debilitating than TBI symptoms.
