What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

There are two types of brain injuries: traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and acquired brain injuries (ABI). TBIs are caused by external forces that impact the head, while ABIs are caused by internal factors, such as a lack of oxygen to the brain.

When most people think of brain injuries, they are thinking of TBIs. TBIs are one of the most common types of brain injuries and are usually caused by a blow to the head. However, they can also be caused by a jolt or a sudden change in momentum that causes the brain to move around inside the skull.

Some common causes of TBIs include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Construction accidents
  • Violent attacks

What Are the Symptoms of a Brain Injury?

Brain injuries are not always immediately apparent. In some cases, it can take days or even weeks for the symptoms to appear. This is why it is so important to seek medical attention after any accident that involves a blow to the head, even if you do not think you are injured.

Some of the most common symptoms of a brain injury include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Problems with balance
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Changes in mood or behavior

How Are Brain Injuries Diagnosed?

If you are experiencing any symptoms of a brain injury, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. A doctor can perform a variety of tests to determine if you have suffered a brain injury, including:

  • Physical examination
  • Neurological examination
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • EEG
  • Intracranial pressure monitor

It is important to seek medical treatment for any brain injury, even if it seems relatively minor. When a brain injury is not promptly diagnosed and treated, it can lead to serious complications or even death.

What Are the Long-Term Effects of a Brain Injury?

Brain injuries can cause a wide range of physical, cognitive, and emotional problems. The symptoms of a brain injury can vary widely depending on the severity of the injury and the area of the brain that was affected.

Some of the most common long-term effects of a brain injury include:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Seizures
  • Problems with coordination and balance
  • Problems with speech and language
  • Changes in personality
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Difficulty with problem-solving and decision-making
  • Reduced cognitive abilities
  • Coma or persistent vegetative state

Brain injuries can also cause a loss of sensation in the extremities or other parts of the body. In some cases, a person may lose their sense of taste or smell. They may also have difficulty seeing or hearing.

How Are Brain Injuries Treated?

The treatment for a brain injury will depend on the severity of the injury and the area of the brain that was affected. In some cases, a brain injury can be treated with medication or surgery. In other cases, the treatment may involve a combination of medications, therapy, and assistive devices.

People who have suffered a brain injury may need to relearn how to walk, talk, and perform other basic tasks. They may need to use a wheelchair or other assistive devices to get around. They may also need to take medication to control seizures or other symptoms.

People who have suffered a brain injury often require long-term care. They may need to live in a nursing home or other type of assisted living facility. They may also need to have a caregiver come to their home to help them with their daily activities.

    "After being wrongfully terminated, Ryan fought hard to get the justice I deserved!"
    After being told I didn't have a case from three other attorneys, I contacted Ryan who took my case. After being wrongfully terminated, Ryan fought hard to get the justice I deserved! Jeannetta was great and kept me updated without me having to harass them lol... I won my lawsuit and was pleased with the results. I highly recommend Ryan and his team Jeanetta! They will give you the justice you deserve!

    "They treated me like family."
    Perry & Young Law Firm represented me with my discrimination case. Mrs. Jeanetta Brown conducted my intake and was a great pleasure to work with! From the beginning of initial contact to the end of my settlement, they treated me like family. The defendants wanted to treat me as a nuance, but my Perry & Young Law Firm didn’t treat me as such and made sure I was fairly compensated. I appreciate their patience, handling my case with care, and respect!
