Traumatic Brain Injury Increases Risk of Alzheimer’s Later in Life

Traumatic Brain Injury Increases RiskIt is obvious that a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause significant cognitive impairments following a head injury in a slip and fall, auto accident, or another personal injury. But did you know that a TBI also greatly increases an individual’s likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease or some other form of dementia, even years after the accident? Research conducted over the past 30 years has turned up this link in study after study. One study found that young adults who experienced a moderate TBI were 2.3 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s later in life. For those who had suffered a severe TBI, the increased risk was 4.5 times as great. Treatment for Alzheimer’s can be costly, not to mention the emotional toll it takes on the victim and the victim’s family. Is the greater risk of Alzheimer’s a type of legal damage that can be compensated in a personal injury lawsuit? This is a difficult question, and the answer depends on a number of factors. It is certainly a question work exploring with your attorney. Fetterman & Associates works to get you every penny you are entitled to as a result of your injury. Identifying and valuing future costs and complications that are likely to arise from your injury is a critical part of estimating your damage award. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury or any other serious personal injury, contact the Law Team at Fetterman & Associates to speak with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.
