Does a Concussion Cause Permanent Brain Damage?

Brain injuries can result from a variety of causes – from motorcycle accidents to slip and fall accidents – but many are believed to be concussion-related. In the past, concussions were believed to be temporary issues that healed naturally as days or weeks passed after the accident. Thanks to applied neurological sciences and studies, health experts now understand that a seemingly simple concussion can be the first part of a permanent brain injury.

“Minor” yet lingering consequences of a concussion can include:

  • Inability to focus
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Memory loss
  • Struggling to complete daily tasks

More severe symptoms of a concussion that causes brain damage are:

  • Speech impediments
  • Learning difficulties
  • Loss of muscular control
  • Chronic migraines

Can a Person Recover from a Brain Injury?

If you have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, then your doctor’s prognosis might be less than encouraging. Moderate to severe brain damage is usually permanent because brain cells heal incredibly slowly compared to other cells in the body. The brain damage will often gradually worsen with time, too. In a best-case scenario, the brain will heal at about the same rate as the injury worsens, so the damage never appears to change, for better or for worse.

There are certain medical procedures and therapies that can help with brain damage. Rehabilitative, language, and occupational therapies can help a TBI patient relearn or regain abilities that the brain injury had interrupted, but the therapy sessions often must be repeated on a regular basis for the rest of the patient’s life. Brain surgery can correct severe damage, but it is also extremely risky, so most doctors will not suggest it in all but the direst cases.

How Much is a Brain Injury Case Worth?

The lasting consequences of a traumatic brain injury usually add up to significant damages. Necessary treatments alone can range into six-figures if all future care is calculated accurately. Factoring in elective treatments will only increase the value of the brain injury case even more.

Damages we can consider for your TBI claim are:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Lost wages due to an inability to hold gainful employment
  • Pain, suffering, and hardship
  • Shortened life expectancy

Insurance companies and medical groups know just how expensive a brain injury claim can be, which is why they defend against them so tenaciously. You need to expect harsh resistance to your claim or lawsuit, even if the evidence of liability and the lasting consequences of your traumatic brain injury are clear.

When Catastrophe Strikes, Strike Back with Professional Representation

Insurance companies might want to offer you a settlement before the full impact of your brain injury is known, allowing them to save themselves thousands of dollars. Your employer might even unlawfully pressure you into accepting initial compensation in an unjust attempt to avoid legal responsibilities.

Commonly Asked Questions

What are common causes of brain injuries?

The most common cause of brain injuries is falls. Other frequent causes involve car accidents, especially for young adults, sports injuries, especially from high-impact or extreme sports, physical assaults like child abuse and domestic violence, and accidents while at work, particularly in industrial or construction environments.

What legal options are available to individuals with brain injuries in Portland?

People who have sustained a brain injury might consider taking legal steps, including initiating a lawsuit for personal injury against those at fault, to obtain reimbursement for medical bills, lost income, and emotional distress. For injuries incurred on the job, workers' compensation could be accessible. In instances of negligence, one might also explore filing claims for product liability. It is important to seek the guidance of an experienced attorney to understand and pursue these legal options.

How can family members support a loved one with a brain injury in Portland?

Providing patience, organizing assistance, and breaking down chores into manageable steps are ways that family members can support a loved one who has suffered a brain injury. Learning their triggers and monitoring for overstimulation are critical steps toward making the home environment more accommodating. Setting up a routine and involving them in regular activities will help them feel more normal and included. Assisting with medical appointments and seeking out community resources and support groups is also helpful. Caregivers must also prioritize self-care in order to maintain their health.
