Attending To Both Physical And Psychological Damage Of A Brain Injury
A physical brain injury creates a lifetime of needs. For many accident victims, the tragic event has also led to post-traumatic stress and other psychological disorders. Cases where damage to the body intersects with harm to the brain are complex and require a higher level of legal representation.
Simply stated, the psychological damage from an accident that caused the TBI can be as damaging as the actual physical impact. Ronald Ramirez, the founder of our Forest Hills law office, is ready to take on those challenges and secure the best outcome when your symptoms indicate brain injury.
When Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder And Physical Brain Injuries Intersect
PTSD can be caused by a variety of ways, including:
- A violent collision while driving
- A fall from a significant height while working
- A fire or explosion
When any one of these life-changing moments occur for victims and their family members, individuals are left with not only traumatic brain injuries but also post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) from the event itself.
Commonly referred to as post-traumatic brain injury syndrome (PTBIS), the symptoms can last from a few weeks to years are indicated by behavior such as:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Inability to focus
- Impaired memory
- Lack of understanding
Behavioral changes lead to irritability, mood swings and even physical outbursts. More severe effects involve incontinence and tinnitus.
