What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a severe and potentially life-altering condition resulting from a significant blow or jolt to the head. As one of the leading causes of disability and death worldwide, TBIs can have devastating consequences on victims and their families.
Common Types of Head Injuries
Many head injuries occur when an individual receives blunt force to the head. Blunt force is typically defined as any type of force that does not puncture the skin.
There are two main types of traumatic brain injury:
- Closed Head Injuries - Closed head injuries involve a blow to the head without any penetration of the skull. The force causes the brain to move within the skull, leading to bruising, swelling, and damage to brain tissues. Common causes include falls and motor vehicle and tractor trailer accidents.
- Penetrating Head Injuries - Penetrating head injuries occur when an object pierces the skull and directly injures the brain. These injuries are often the result of accidents involving sharp objects.
Any of these injuries may lead to further complications, so it is important to receive medical treatment at the first sign of a head injury. If doctors do find that a greater problem exists, head injury victims may be left with large medical bills and lost wages while they recover. Fortunately, they may be entitled to financial compensation.
The consequences of a traumatic brain injury are serious, which is why you need a Springfield brain injury attorney you can count on. No other law firm in Southern Missouri has the reputation of Strong Law, . Call (417) 855-2022 to schedule a free consultation of your case.
Signs of a Brain Injury
TBIs are dangerous but you can easily mistake the side effects for something less severe. According to medical experts, TBIs result from any impact – such as a blow to the head – that disrupts normal brain functions.
If, for example, you sustained a head injury in an auto accident, you may not see a doctor because you hit your head but “feel fine.” This mistake could lead to serious physical damages and, in some cases, keep you from recovering the compensation you deserve.
Signs of a brain injury include:
- Ringing in the Ears
- Vomiting, Nausea
- Blurred Vision
- Disrupted Sleep Patterns
- Mood Swings / Changes
Depending on the severity of the damage, TBI can result in more obvious symptoms, such as difficulty speaking, memory loss, and unconsciousness. Contact our Missouri brain injury lawyers to get started on your case!
