Traumatic Brain Injury
Any serious injury is going to cause devastating effects. However, traumatic injury to the brain can be one of the most life-changing forms of injury. Often, the effects of TBI are not evident to the general public. Though they may be subtle, the impact can be lifelong for the person who has suffered the injury.
Effects of a TBI can be noticed either immediately after the injury or years down the road. Signs of traumatic brain injuries and concussions can often be mistaken for symptoms of other everyday diseases. Headaches and nausea may go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed if they occur weeks or months after the injury has occurred.
Traumatic Brain Injuries can affect any number of things for the person who suffered the injury. Decreased cognitive function, changes in ability to experience sensations, speech issues, decreased motor function, or drastic changes in personalities and emotions are all things that can result from a TBI.
The most common causes of TBI are:
- Automobile Accidents
- Sports Injuries
- Defective Products
- Unlawful Alcohol Sales
- Slip & Fall Injuries
- Work Place Injuries
