At some basic level, our personalities are stored in our brains. When our brains are damaged, it can change us forever. Sometimes, the changes are subtle, and sometimes the changes are severe and debilitating. Unfortunately, the damage caused by a traumatic bran injury (TBI) is always permanent and irreversible.

Different Levels of Severity in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic brain injuries are classified as being mild, moderate or severe.
- A severe traumatic brain injury means the affected individual has been rendered completely incapacitated, unable to live independently and unable to function in society.
- A moderate traumatic brain injury involves a decrease in cognitive functioning and a marked change in personality, like sudden impulsiveness, aggression or socially inappropriate behavior.
- A mild traumatic brain injury may cause decreased cognitive functioning, short-term memory loss, headaches and subtle personality changes.
Because it can be difficult to conclusively prove when a person’s personality has changed, TBI cases require an experienced lawyer who knows how to work with medical and psychological experts.
