The 411 on Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can leave both the victim and their loved ones physically and emotionally crippled. The effects of TBI can be either temporary or impact the rest of the victim’s life. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year 1.5 million Americans suffer a TBI and approximately 80,000 to 90,000 of these cases result in long-term effects.

If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI in an accident that was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party, you may be entitled to compensation. Just like any other serious injury, TBI’s come with specific and expensive medical expenses. These costs can wreak havoc on the lives of the victim and his or her loved ones. The party liable should bear the cost.

What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury occurs when soft tissue of the brain collides with the inside of the skull. Because the brain is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body, this occurrence almost always results in a traumatic brain injury. You can suffer a TBI even if you don’t sustain a blow directly to the head. For instance, if you were involved in a rear-end motor vehicle collision, the jerking motion of your head can cause your brain to smash into your bony skull, becoming bruised and torn.

Common Symptoms of a TBI

The symptoms of traumatic brain injury are not immediately apparent. You don’t have to lose consciousness to suffer a TBI. That is why it is important to be cautious of all possible symptoms of a head injury if you’ve been involved in any type of accident. According to the U.S. Department of Health, some common symptoms of traumatic brain injury include:

  1. Headache
  2. Confusion
  3. Lightheaded
  4. Dizziness
  5. Blurred vision
  6. Ringing in the ears
  7. Tiredness or sleepiness
  8. A bad taste in the mouth
  9. A change in sleep habits
  10. Trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking
  11. Loss of consciousness lasting a few seconds to minutes
  12. Sensitivity to light or sound
  13. Nausea or vomiting
