What Is a Brain Injury?
Brain injuries can be classified into a variety of injuries including concussion, diffuse anoxal injury, contusion, coup-contrecoupe, or open head injury. Regardless of the type, brain injuries are most common in traffic accidents, slip and fall accidents, recreational activity, or work or industrial accidents.
Head injuries like these can cause a number of devastating effects, including bleeding, paralysis, seizures, hearing loss, vision loss, personality changes, changes or loss of ability to taste and smell, and cognitive learning defects. Sometimes these conditions develop immediately following the injury, while often they are not recognized until much later.
If you’ve experienced a head injury, you should know when to seek medical attention. Any head injury that is accompanied by any of the following symptoms should receive medical evaluation immediately:
Oftentimes close friends or family members are the first to recognize these symptoms or changes in behavior or functioning of the injured person.
Brain injuries can be diagnosed using different medical procedures, including CT scans, MRIs, X-rays and a thorough neurological examination. Because some effects of a brain injury may be hidden, you should have repeated examinations if symptoms continue, or others arise.
If you’ve suffered a brain injury, the physical, emotional, and financial effects can be devastating. That’s why getting the help of an experienced brain injury attorney can be an invaluable step in getting the compensation you deserve for these losses.
