Traumatic Brain Injury: When it Happens to Someone You Love

July 12, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

The road to recovery is painstakingly long for those who are affected by a traumatic brain injury–whether it is the family of the victim who is suffering, or the victim himself.  So many times in the initial incident there is nothing to indicate that an injury occurred—until the victim starts to speak, walk or think. Take the case of two-year-old Tripp Halstead, who was injured while at a daycare center when a tree branch fell on his head. He had run over to the shade of the tree to cool off. Initial calls to the parents indicated he had an accident, but that it was nothing severe. Over time, however, and after the subsequent calls to the parents from the daycare center, this daycare injury proved evident that something was seriously wrong. Doctors determined that little Tripp needed immediate brain surgery where they removed part of his skull in order to access the part of this brain that was damaged from the falling tree limb.  The blunt trauma severely damaged his skull.

What Happens After a Traumatic Brain Injury?

January 15, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from an internal injury to the brain caused by some sort of trauma when an object hits the head with significant force, or when someone is affected by an extreme sound such as an explosion.  It can be hard to predict or determine the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury, as the consequences can affect a person’s ability to talk, walk, hear or perform normal functions.  From all appearances someone could look as if he had a stroke, or could look fairly normal.  The person might think logically about some issues and very illogically on others.  For instance, numbers and mathematical equations can be recalled without flaw, while personal habits become a thing of the past as the person can’t remember how to eat or stand up.  Others may notice the person becoming more frustrated, lacking in concentration or finding the inability to express thoughts or feelings.
