What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) transpires when a sudden physical impact causes damage to the brain. Another word for TBI is concussion. When the head experiences a sudden jolt, the brain can bounce off the skull wall, resulting in serious injuries. This type of brain injury is classified as a closed TBI and is the most common type of brain injury. Less common but often more dangerous, open TBIs occur when a foreign object pierces the skull and injures the brain.
Several types of accidents, such as slip-and-falls, motor vehicle accidents, and sports injuries, can result in TBIs for victims. However, no two accident victims experience brain trauma in the same way, and a TBI’s intensity can depend on several factors. The impact’s force, the injury’s location, and the victim’s overall health can all affect the level of brain trauma.
Types and Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
After suffering a brain injury, it is vital to see a medical professional as soon as possible. Many brain injuries are not outwardly visible and require immediate treatment from a medical professional. At Jassim Law we are proud to help our clients get the best possible medical care regardless of whether or what type of insurance you may have.
Brain injuries have different levels of intensity depending on the unique symptoms the victim experiences. Brain injury victims may be diagnosed with a mild, moderate, or severe TBI. Each level of TBI may present the following symptoms:
There is nothing “mild” about a brain injury. However, if a victim loses consciousness briefly due to their injury, they may have suffered a mild TBI, commonly called a concussion. Other typical symptoms include dizziness, difficulty concentrating, and changes in sleep patterns. Despite being classified as a minor TBI, these symptoms can significantly impact the victim’s quality of life. Some individuals improve in a matter of weeks or months, others suffer a permanent injury.
If you lost consciousness for several hours after your injury, you may have suffered a moderate TBI. Symptoms from a moderate TBI may span multiple months and commonly include headaches, vision loss, and mood swings. Victims of moderate TBIs typically experience other physical, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms that significantly impact their daily lives.
Victims who fall into a coma or experience an extended period of unconsciousness likely suffer from a severe TBI. Often, severe TBIs impact victims for years, and symptoms may persist throughout their entire lives. Victims may experience temporary or permanent cognitive disabilities, paralysis, and personality changes. Additionally, coma patients often require lengthy hospital stays that can place a substantial financial burden on victims and their families.
