What Is a Serious Injury as Defined by Nebraska Law?

Published on Apr 3, 2018 at 2:32 pm in Personal Injury.

When you’re hurt because of someone else’s negligence, it can do more than cause a slight injury for the day. Negligence can hospitalize people for days and cause myriad health complications. In some severe cases, serious injuries can have consequences that leave people with chronic health problems. Not only does this affect your health, it can affect you financially as well. Medical expenses include hospital stays, medication, and future doctor visits and possibly rehabilitation. Your recovery may make you miss work which could cause financial stress.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of negligence, you may be experiencing this kind of stress. This isn’t fair. You shouldn’t have to be accountable for this because it wasn’t your fault. That’s where you can seek legal aid. An Omaha personal injury lawyer from Welsh & Welsh can help you get compensation for your injuries and financial losses. We’ve proudly served the Nebraska community for years and are ready to fight for your rights.

How Similar Are Concussions to TBIs?

A TBI or traumatic brain injury is an injury caused by a blow to the head or puncture wound that causes damage to the brain. In the most severe cases of TBIs, recovery may be impossible or involve years of therapy, surgeries, and/or medication. Victims of a traumatic brain injury often find it difficult to live the life they once knew. We tend to think that TBIs are rare, but over 1.4 million Americans suffer from some form of a traumatic brain injury today.

One form of TBIs that many individuals do not know about is MTBIs, or minor traumatic brain injuries. An MTBI is the most prevalent form of TBI and is defined as any impact or forceful motion of the head which causes a brief change in mental status or consciousness. Severe TBIs often cause long-lasting changes in mental status or consciousness, but when an individual loses consciousness for even a brief second or two, this can still be defined as an MTBI.
