What is a brain injury?
A brain injury, also referred to as a traumatic brain injury or TBI, can be detrimental to those who suffer from them. Brain injury victims will oftentimes become permanently disabled and require years of treatment. Personal injury accident victims may not realize they have suffered this type of injury until months after sustaining a brain injury. If they are left untreated, a small injury can sometimes develop into a lasting disability. Common disabilities include chronic seizures, migraines, memory loss and brain fog, loss of motor abilities, and more. In some severe cases, a brain injury can even result in a wrongful death.
Different types of brain injuries
There are various types of brain injuries that one can experience. These types include:
- Hematoma: a blood clot in the brain. These types of brain injuries can be fatal.
- Concussion: a minor head injury that can result in temporary loss of consciousness. This type of head injury does not usually cause a permanent brain injury.
- Contusion: bruising of the brain.
- TBI: a traumatic brain injury is a bleeding in the cavity that surrounds the brain. These types of brain injuries can be fatal.
How do I know if I have a brain injury?
Although they can be hard to detect, common symptoms of a brain injury include:
