Traumatic Brain Injury
Car crashes are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury which can leave victims with temporary or permanent brain damage. Whiplash, a direct hit to the head and sudden acceleration/deceleration during accidents prompt serious bleeding, bruising and swelling of the brain tissue.
The point of impact in a car wreck can jolt you to the brain. Literally. Hard blows to the body or head violently jolt the brain within the skull, forcefully rocking it back and forth with rapidity. This is called traumatic brain injury, a condition that can lead to neurocognitive dysfunction, intracranial infection and blood clots. It can occur upon motor vehicle collisions, while working on an oilfield site or with a quick slip of the foot. Regardless of its nature, brain injury can turn your world upside down and put you in a financial bind you never thought possible. Remember that our firm is here to help you get through this.
The Tragic Aftermath
You may not know it now, but you might be exhibiting mild to severe traumatic brain injury symptoms. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, visit a doctor immediately for an evaluation that will help determine the severity of your concussion. The longer you let it “ride out”, the more brain damage you will incur. Brain injury can have drastic effects on your psychological, mental, physical and emotional well-being.
Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can include:
- Persistent headaches
- Blurred or double vision
- Sleep disturbance
- Mood swings
- Loss of coordination
- Memory problems
- Fatigue and drowsiness
- Sensitivity to light and sound
A Blow to Your Health and Bank Account
Unlike a broken arm, brain injuries, such as concussions, may require more than just a visit to the ER. Oftentimes, brain complications develop weeks or months after a head trauma, with some long-term complications included in the mix. A release from the ER is not the end of this tragedy, but perhaps the beginning of a painful and difficult journey. Survivors of traumatic brain injury sometimes enter a vegetative state or a coma, a prolonged state of unconsciousness. Brain injuries heal through what is called functional recovery, a type of recovery that requires continuous medical attention.
