Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain Injury

You (or a loved one) are recently in an automobile accident. You wake up in the hospital and you do not feel like yourself. What happened? Why do you feel this way? All you hear is your doctor say, “traumatic brain injury.” You are wondering what traumatic brain injury (TBI) means. You are wondering if you will ever get your life back? Traumatic brain injuries can be categorized as mild, moderate or severe. Traumatic brain injury can significantly affect your cognitive, physical and psychological skills. Physical skills such as balance, coordination, fine motor skills, and strength can be significantly impacted by a traumatic brain injury. Cognitive defects can include difficulties with your language, communication and/or memory. Psychologically, you may be affected as well, which could include depression, becoming easily emotional. If you suffered a traumatic brain injury, you will probably need physical, occupational and/or speech therapy to help you learn how to do things that you did prior to the accident. Attorney Wendy Schiller-Nichols has had clients who made marvelous recoveries because of the therapy they received. A traumatic brain injury can be caused (and typically is caused) from auto accidents in which the head strikes an object. Usually, you have a loss of consciousness at the scene of the accident and/or loss of memory just before or after the accident. If you have suffered an injury from an automobile accident or suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of an accident, Wendy Schiller-Nichols is here to help you on the legal side to get your life back.
