Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury

A serious accident in a car or at work may result in a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, a traumatic brain injury occurs when an outside force damages the brain. TBIs can be caused by hitting the head or by an object piercing the skull. Depending on what areas of the brain are injured and the severity of the injury, a traumatic brain injury can range from a mild condition to one with serious life-altering consequences.

The symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury include dizziness, nausea, head pain, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, fatigue, a change in mood, and sometimes a brief loss of consciousness. More serious TBIs may show all these symptoms, but may also include head pain that doesn’t go away or worsens, vomiting, seizures or convulsions, and weakness, numbness or loss of feeling in the limbs.

Traumatic brain injuries can occur in car accidents or other commuting accidents, including pedestrian and motorcycle accidents. A TBI can also occur during a construction accident or other workplace accident, or can be the result of a slip and fall. If you suspect you have suffered a traumatic brain injury in any accident scenario, you should seek medical help immediately.
