At Turley Law Firm in Dallas, we understand the unique challenges faced by individuals who have suffered a TBI and the lifetime of costs and difficulties they may endure. Below we discuss some of these impacts and how we can help. If you or a loved one suffered a TBI in an accident caused by a negligent driver, defective product, oil rig or construction accident, or dangerous premises, contact Turley Law Firm to speak with an experienced and successful Texas personal injury lawyer.

The Nature of Traumatic Brain Injuries

A TBI is an injury to the brain caused by an external force striking the skull or rapid movement of the brain within the skull, even if there is no direct contact. Results can range from a mild concussion to a severe head injury. These injuries often result from accidents like car crashes, falls, or sports injuries. The severity of a TBI can vary significantly, affecting cognitive, physical, and emotional functions.

Cognitive Implications of TBI

One of the most significant impacts of a TBI is on cognitive abilities. This includes challenges with memory, concentration, and decision-making skills. For professionals, these impairments can have serious repercussions in the workplace, affecting their ability to perform tasks, manage time, and make crucial decisions. The cognitive effects of a TBI can range from subtle to severe, potentially leading to long-term disability.

Emotional and Psychological Effects

TBIs are not just physical injuries; they also have emotional and psychological ramifications. Victims may experience mood swings, depression, anxiety, and personality changes. These emotional challenges can strain personal and professional relationships, impacting both workplace dynamics and home life. In some cases, professional counseling and therapy are necessary to address these issues.

Physical Consequences and Their Impact on Work

Physical symptoms of a TBI can include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. These symptoms can hinder a person’s ability to fulfill their job responsibilities, especially in physically demanding roles. In some instances, modifications to the work environment or a change in job role may be required to accommodate these physical limitations.

Long-Term Career Implications and Legal Considerations

The long-term impact of a TBI on an individual’s career can be profound. In severe cases, victims may be unable to return to their previous profession or might require extensive retraining for a new career. This not only affects the individual’s earning capacity but also their sense of identity and purpose.
