Traumatic brain injury occurs as a result of forcible trauma or a blow to the brain. It can result in several different complications for the patient depending on the severity of the blow and the resulting injury. One of the possible results for those who suffer from this type of injury is the loss of cognitive reserve.

 This affects the amount of brain matter that is present in the brain, which is intended to last for your lifetime. The loss of which can make you more vulnerable and susceptible to diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Dementia.

 The Frontal Lobe is another area of the brain affected by traumatic injury. This is the most advanced part of the brain and is responsible for a lot of the functions the brain carries out. Injuries to this sensitive part of the brain can result in devastating and lifelong complications and difficulties that can affect the individual’s ability to live a normal life.

 Unfortunately, trying to get compensation for the treatment and complications associated with Traumatic Brain Injury can be just as traumatic as the injury itself. Insurance companies will fight your claim all the way. They usually contact you soon after you submit a claim. The telephone call between the adjuster and you may be recorded for use later on in a hearing to show that there is nothing wrong with you. Speech impairment is one of the possible side effects but is not the only symptom or necessary to prove traumatic brain injury.

 There is no aspect of your life that will be safe from scrutiny as the insurance company tries their best to protect their interest. Your health and the state of your finances are not their primary concern. They will search your garbage and interview your neighbours, friends, relatives, and coworkers if necessary.

 In order to assist with your claim try if at all possible to take as many photographs as possible from all angles of the accident or event. The vehicle you were driving or a passenger in, as well as any other vehicle or object involved in the accident.

 Take the necessary steps to prevent the vehicle from being destroyed or crushed by any of the parties involved including the insurance company. Take the name and addresses of as many witnesses that can account for what happened before and after the incident.

 Finally, get the best medical help possible to aid you in a speedy and full recovery. Keep detailed records and ask your family to do the same as you may not be in a position to do so for yourself. Providing detailed records and evidence of your injury will assist you with any claim you may file. After your traumatic brain injury depending on the severity of the injury, try to pick up the pieces and resume a normal life as soon as is possible.
