Traumatic Brain Injury and Dementia – What Is The Link?
A large Danish study has proven what doctors have long suspected about traumatic brain injury – individuals that suffer these injuries are more likely to be diagnosed with dementia. Insurance companies are wary about accepting these claims as well as realizing the permanence of some of the symptoms suffered by those with a traumatic brain injury: this is because a lot of people do go on to experience some form of recovery, so it’s difficult for them to believe that a fraction may go on to show symptoms of early onset dementia, especially if they are over 40. Dementia is a neuropsychiatric condition for which there is no known cure. Individuals with this degenerative condition get worse over time, and they get to a point where they are unable to remember things and places, and finally lose their ability to walk and carry out the most basic of functions. If you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury and then went on to display signs of dementia, you or they may be eligible for substantial money damages, and we’re here to help with that.
