Traumatic brain injuries are complex medical conditions with several symptoms and disabilities. Traumatic brain injuries are the result of a violent blow to the head, striking the head on an object, or something penetrating the skull.
Often, patients who have experienced a traumatic brain injury are too overwhelmed by simple tasks, much less dealing with an insurance company.
Cognitive problems stemming from traumatic brain injuries can damage every aspect of a person’s life. Problems with short-term and long-term memory, language, and concentration are all cognitive components affected by traumatic brain injury. Physical symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, vision problems, nausea or vomiting, sleep dysfunction, and sensory problems. All of these symptoms make it extremely difficult for victims of TBI to function in the workplace.
