TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Traumatic brain injuries can occur in any type of accident that involves head trauma. Car and motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall cases, birth injury cases, premises liability – all these and more can result in a head injury.
The long-term effects of a head injury, anything from a concussion to a skull fracture, can be wide-ranging and difficult to determine. Two people who appear to have suffered the same type and severity of injury in the same location will react to the injury in vastly different ways, any of which can change their lives. While most people associate coma and severe loss of function with traumatic brain injury, or TBI, other consequences can include loss of short-term or long-term memory, changes in temperament and mood swings, loss of fine motor skills, insomnia, and inability to remember family and friends. Other neurological disorders that show up later in life may also be related to the TBI.
Brain injuries can be very difficult to diagnose and often go unnoticed by treating doctors. Oftentimes, mild brain injuries do not even require a hospital stay, yet they result in changes so severe that lives are impacted for many years (or permanently). They can cause physical cognitive, social and vocational changes and, in many cases, recovery becomes a lifelong process of adjustments and accommodations for the individual and the family.
