How do brain injuries affect Dallas victims?

Brain injuries can have wide-ranging effects, and the severity often depends on what initially caused the injury, the effectiveness of the treatment a victim receives, and how quickly a victim receives treatment after the initial emergency.

Those who sustain relatively minor TBIs (such as concussions) will likely make a full recovery if they follow a doctor’s treatment plan. However, those who sustain more severe TBIs often have long-term impairments. This can include:

  • Partial or full paralysis
  • Trouble carrying or moving objects
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Uncontrolled movements
  • Difficulty walking or standing
  • Speech difficulties
  • Loss of fine motor skills
  • Cognitive challenges such as trouble thinking or remembering
