Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injuries are common in motor vehicle, bicycle and other types of accidents and, though they are not always immediately recognizable to the naked eye, they can have catastrophic life-long effects. Victims of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) oftentimes are not aware of the serious injury they have sustained, as symptoms can onset gradually over a period of time. Many times, it takes a loved one or close friend to notice changes to the victim’s personality. Many experts will tell you that a simple concussion is not so simple, and by definition is considered a mild traumatic brain injury. Symptoms of TBI include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Inability to concentrate
- Extreme sleepiness
- Communication problems
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Changes in personality (irritability, lack of interest in hobbies, etc.)
- Severe headaches
The brain and its various components are vital to cognitive functions. Things that were simple prior to the TBI become difficult for the victim after sustaining the TBI, complicating even the most basic of daily tasks. Families and loved ones often have to pick up the slack, and bare a heavy burden caring for a TBI victim. For many victims, a TBI means that their life will never be the same. In addition to bills piling up and numerous doctors appointments, TBI victims have to face the prospect that their life will never be the same again.
