Brain injuries come in many forms and can severely impact someone’s ability to see, hear, speak, walk and think. Brain injuries can come with the burden of expensive medical needs and lost wages, as well as a lifetime of physical, emotional and financial struggles. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 153 people die every day in the United States from injuries that include a traumatic brain injury.
Many things can cause a brain injury, including automobile accidents, work related accidents, sporting accidents, product liability accidents, birth accidents, aviation accidents and countless other unfortunate events. A catastrophic brain injury greatly alters a victim and their family’s lives, presenting a host of challenges that make it difficult to sustain the quality of life the individual had prior to the accident.
What are Some Brain Injury Symptoms?
A brain injury, even one that seems minor, can have wide ranging physical and psychological effects. While some symptoms may appear immediately after a brain injury, others may take days or weeks to appear, or may not appear at all.
The most common brain injury symptoms include:
- Loss of consciousness for any length of time
- Feeling of nausea or dizziness
- Sudden headache
- Speech problems
- Loss of balance
- Blurred vision
- Concentration problems
- Abnormal behavior
- Mood swings
Always see a doctor if you, your child or a loved one has received any kind of blow to the head and is experiencing any of the symptoms above. Immediate and emergency medical care is of the utmost importance to determine any damage that may have been done.
