Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries result from external forces impacting the brain, causing a range of symptoms and long-term effects. TBIs are classified into two main types: primary injuries, which occur at the moment of impact, and secondary injuries, which develop over time due to the body’s response to the initial injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury has the potential to profoundly alter a person's personality. These changes are often multifaceted and can include shifts in emotional regulation, impulse control, and social behavior. For instance, individuals who once exhibited calm and stable moods may experience sudden and unpredictable mood swings, ranging from irritability to intense outbursts of anger. Impulsivity can also become a significant issue, leading to risky decisions and behaviors. Furthermore, some individuals with TBI may struggle with social appropriateness, displaying a lack of empathy or understanding of social cues. These personality changes can be deeply challenging for both the TBI survivor and their loved ones, requiring comprehensive rehabilitation and support to help them navigate these transformations and rebuild their lives.

Primary TBI Injuries

Primary injuries can include:

  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Skull fractures
  • Hematomas (blood clots)
  • Diffuse axonal injury (shearing of brain nerves)

These injuries can lead to immediate symptoms like loss of consciousness, confusion, and headaches.

Secondary TBI Injuries

Secondary injuries, which evolve over time, can be equally or more dangerous. They include:

  • Swelling or edema
  • Increased intracranial pressure
  • Ischemia (reduced blood flow)
  • Brain herniation
  • Infections
  • Changes in personality and behavior
  • Cognitive impairments

These injuries often require long-term medical attention and can profoundly impact a person’s quality of life.

Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone. I knew that the insurance of the other driver wasn't very good but they were still able to settle my case promptly and I was satisfied with the money I received. Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
