Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries can vary from moderate to severe. They occur in a number of different circumstances including car accidents, bicycle accidents, sports injuries, ATV accidents, or slip and fall accidents. Traumatic brain injuries occur when the brain moves around within the skull and collides with the wall of the skull.

Traumatic brain injuries can often be misdiagnosed because their symptoms resemble those of many other conditions. Also, traumatic brain injury symptoms can remain dormant for days.
Traumatic brain injury symptoms include:

  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Vision loss or impairment (such as double vision)
  • Hearing loss or impairment (such as ringing in the ears)
  • Memory loss
  • Unconsciousness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Lightheadedness
  • Seizures
  • Slurring of speech
  • Numbness
  • Insomnia

If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, it is very important that you receive medical attention right away. While the effects of a traumatic brain injury cannot be reversed, medical professionals will stabilize the head to prevent any further injury. Traumatic brain injuries can be life threatening, and the treatment you may need depends on the type of injury you have suffered, your age and your general health.

Traumatic brain injuries are a good example of why, if you are in an accident, you should receive medical treatment immediately. Even if you feel completely normal and healthy after being involved in an accident, you may not be aware of the damage done to your brain.

Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can remain dormant for hours, even days, but the quicker you are diagnosed, the less likely you will suffer additional injuries. So, to be sure, always seek the medical attention regardless of how you think you feel.

Vehicle accidents are the number one cause of traumatic brain injury. In order to prevent sustaining this sort of injury, wear seatbelts, use child safety seats, and make sure your car is equipped with air bags. If you're a biker, wear a helmet and obey all rules of the road as car drivers may not be!
