Traumatic Brain Injuries & Trauma – What You Must Do

What to Expect After a Brain Injury in Maryland

If you or someone you care about has suffered from a traumatic brain injury, get the legal assistance you need now to get compensation for the injury. Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC has been providing stellar legal services to victims for more than two decades.

There are two major systems to catalog the severity of traumatic brain injuries. The Glasgow Coma Scale uses a scale from 1-15 to categorize damage to the brain and neural tissue. On the low-end of the spectrum (13-15), mild symptoms may result. Moderate TBI (9-12) results in impairment of cognitive function, comas longer than half-an-hour, and physical problems that may resolve on their own but may require rehabilitation. Severe TBI (3-8) often results in long-term coma. For the most severe TBI (under 3), the patient is essentially in a vegetative state and cannot respond to pain or interface with the environment in any meaningful way.

Ranking Brain Trauma

The Ranchos Los Amigos Scale also categorizes TBI on an 8-level scale based on the injured patient’s cognitive abilities, ability to interact with the world around him or her, general awareness, and social behavior.

The effects of traumatic brain injuries can be devastating. The cognitive difficulties that some victims experience can have serious implications when it comes to the speed or likelihood of their recovery. Sensory and motor skills, the ability to pay attention and concentrate, language skills and the ability to communicate can all be severely compromised following a TBI. Additionally, severe changes in mood and behavior can occur that manifest themselves as restlessness and agitation, irritability, paranoia, depression and anxiety.
