Traumatic Brain Injuries and Where You Can Get Help!

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Feb 25, 2021 | 0 Comments

There are many different types and causes of traumatic brain injuries, or TBI's, that can result from a number of different types of accidents. They are most typically the result of motor vehicle accidents and slip and fall or trip and fall injuries where there is some type of impact or rotational force that affects the brain. Fortunately, most people who experience some type of traumatic brain injury, and most commonly a concussion, usually end up with a good result that does not have a permanent effect upon the injured party.
However, the most significant cases involving injured individuals can leave them with serious and lifelong injuries that can adversely affect them for the rest of their lives. These injuries can have devastating effects on both the injured party and their family members. The physical consequences can range from paralysis and seizures to fatigue, headaches, balance issues, and sleep disturbances.
Fortunately, there are a number of different resources that can be accessed and utilized by both injured parties and their family members. Julie Peters, the Executive Director of the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut, was kind enough to provide us with her thoughts and comments on the subject which we recently published on the CT Injury Resource Guide.
Ms. Peters indicated that there can be devastating consequences that may be experienced by both the injured party and the affected family members. Many times, she stated that family members feel overwhelmed, lost, scared, and confused. It is therefore important to seek out help and support through the resource centers and organizations that are available so you can get a better understanding as to what can be done to provide assistance to all those affected by a traumatic brain injury.
The Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut is a nonprofit agency that promotes education, advocacy, and services for individuals with traumatic brain injuries. They can assist injured parties and their family members with resources such as: a free helpline; community education programs; support groups; and a number of other resources. If you or someone you know has been affected by a traumatic brain injury, you should contact the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut to see what assistance might need available for you.
If you have a family member that has been involved in an accident, that has been caused by the fault of another, then it is very important that you consult with an experienced brain injury lawyer at the earliest possible moment so that your case can be investigated and developed so as to help maximize the amount of money that you are able to obtain for the injuries and damages that you have suffered.
