Traumatic Brain Injuries

The Brain Injury Association of America reports that someone sustains a brain injury in the U.S. every nine seconds. In addition, about 52,000 Americans die each year and over five million require daily assistance because of a traumatic brain injury.

Types of Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a forceful blow to the head that disrupts normal brain function. The severity of a TBI can range from mild to severe.

On the other hand, an acquired brain injury (ABI) occurs at the cellular level. Typically, acquired brain injuries result from pressure on the brain.

Brain injuries are complicated because their symptoms are sometimes delayed or internal. According to Healthline, some common brain injuries are:

  • Diffuse axonal injury
  • Hematoma – Blood clotting outside the blood vessels
  • Hemorrhage – Uncontrolled internal bleeding
  • Concussion – Impact to the head which can result in internal injuries
  • Edema – Swelling or inflammation of the brain
  • Skull fracture

If you sustained head trauma in an accident, you should see a doctor immediately. Traumatic brain injury symptoms can be hard to detect and can appear as whiplash at first. It is best to get an accurate medical evaluation and then discuss legal options with a knowledgeable lawyer.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury can cause physical, psychological, and cognitive symptoms, including:

  • Confusion and memory loss
  • Seizures
  • Slurred speech
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Headaches
  • Balance problems
  • Slowed thinking
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Personality change

Concussions usually go away within a few weeks. Therefore, concussions are classified as mild brain injuries. However, more serious brain injuries can cause post-concussion syndrome (PCS) with longer-lasting effects.

Causes of Brain Injury

90 percent of concussions are related to sports injuries.

Other common causes of brain injuries are:

If you suffered a concussion from a car accident or any act of negligence, you may be at risk of brain trauma. In addition, complications from the flu and other illness can also result in brain injury.

Some of these injuries are irreversible, while others often require extensive medical care and ongoing treatment. This can include brain injury therapy, neurological rehabilitation, and home modifications.

Almost no one is prepared to deal with these costs alone. KNR can help. Let us file your claim and document your losses, so you can get the best care possible.
