All types of accidents, whether they are highway accidents involving cars, large trucks or motorcycles, construction accidents involving falls from heights or being struck by materials or equipment, slips and falls or even injuries incurred while playing sports, can result in a wide variety of serious and potentially severe injuries.
The human brain is obviously vital, but it is also delicate; even an injury that at first seems somewhat minor can prove life-changing if certain areas of the brain become damaged. Certain medical problems that stem from a traumatic brain injury or TBI can result in a critical loss of blood flow to the brain, which in turn can result in permanent damage.
A TBI is generally defined as any blow to the head or trauma (which doesn’t have to include impact; it can be a severe shaking) that results in a disruption in normal brain function. These types of injuries can vary widely when it comes to their seriousness, from relatively mild to potentially lethal and everything in between. Not only can a TBI cause significant pain, suffering and discomfort; treatment for such conditions can be extremely expensive and go on for a long time.
That is why it is critical that anyone who has been in an accident and suffered any type of head trauma, even if it doesn’t seem serious at the time, have a complete medical examination done as soon as possible after the accident. Of course, even a thorough medical exam can miss symptoms of a TBI early on, which is why it’s important that anyone who has been in an accident keep an eye out for symptoms for days and weeks after the accident.
Anyone who has been in an accident and has experienced any of these symptoms should see a doctor immediately and have everything checked out; it may be necessary to have an MRI to confirm a brain injury, although some medical professionals tend to hesitate in ordering one without a reasonable cause to believe it’s necessary.
No head injury should be taken lightly, even if it seems minor at first; the pain and suffering these types of injuries can cause is often severe and life-changing and if it was caused by the negligence or misconduct of someone else, you have a right to pursue justice and to receive compensation for your injuries; no innocent victim should ever have to bear the burden themselves.
