Some of the common effects of a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Problem with memory
  • Difficulty learning
  • Problems with speaking
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lack of coordination / balance
  • Mood swings & personality changes

Claims for Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury often is classified as a catastrophic injury because there are few injuries as devastating as a spinal cord injury.

A spinal cord injury can result in physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering and create a financial burden due to the costs of medical care and the negative effects on the injured party's ability to earn income after sustaining a spinal cord injury.

The severity of a spinal cord injury can be classified as either "complete" or "incomplete" depending on what part of the spine the sustained injury. While these categories are broad and include many scenarios one thing remains consistent, the consequences of these injuries are serious.
