Have you been involved in an automobile accident? A boating accident? A motorcycle accident? A work-related accident? A slip-and-fall accident? If you have been involved in any kind of accident, you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury and not even know it. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury do not always occur immediately following an accident. Oftentimes the signs or symptoms of a traumatic brain injury occur days or weeks later. If you have suffered injury and experienced any kinds of symptoms that include dizziness, headaches, fatigue, nausea, difficulty sleeping, or difficulty concentrating among others, then you should seek immediate medical attention. If you have suffered injury and you are a child, a young adult between the ages of 15 and 24 or an adult aged 75 or older, you are most at risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury.
A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external mechanical force causes a brain dysfunction, i.e., you hit the steering wheel of your vehicle as a result of a collision with another vehicle. A traumatic brain injury usually occurs when a violent blow or hard hit happens to the head or body. A traumatic brain injury can result in temporary dysfunction of brain cells, bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, nerve damage, infections, intellectual problems and other physical damage to the brain that can result in long-term complications or death.
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, your condition may be treatable depending upon the severity of the injury. Depending upon the severity of your condition, you may have to endure multiple medical visits or take multiple medications. You may have to undergo surgery or rehabilitation.
