What is a Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the result of a sudden blow to the head or a violent shaking of the head or body, which causes the brain to violently impact the skull. Brain injuries can cause serious complications such as cognitive, behavioral, communication, and/or sensory processing problems. Sometimes in more serious cases a traumatic brain injury can result in a coma, vegetative state, or death.
Unfortunately, there are many ways someone may suffer a brain injury ranging from more innocent behavior of high school football games to malicious reasons such as child abuse. Common causes of such injuries where someone else may be found negligent include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Truck accidents
- Physical assault
- Slip and fall accidents
- Child abuse
Our San Diego personal injury attorney will review your unique accident and subsequent brain injury during a free consultation. If we believe someone acted negligent, we can help fight for compensation of medical bills, loss of wages, emotional damages and more.
What are the Signs of a Brain Injury or TBI?
Not all brain injuries are readily apparent, even when caused by an accident with an obvious head injury. An accident victim who has had a closed head injury may not feel symptoms of brain injury immediately. Certain symptoms of brain injury should prompt an immediate evaluation for brain damage, and a subsequent call to an San Diego brain injury lawyer.
Some symptoms include:
- Blurry vision
- Dizziness or lack of balance
- Difficulty concentrating
- Diminished senses of hearing, taste or sight, or ringing in the ears
- Slurred speech
- Loss of coordination
- Inability to find words or convey thoughts
- Paralysis of any body part
- Mood changes
Treatment of brain injuries depends on the severity and cause. Some minor injuries may be monitored closely from their comfort of their homes while others may require emergency surgery or medications including coma-inducing drugs or diuretics. No matter the severity or initial symptoms, people in serious accidents should seek immediate medical attention.
