Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury can be caused by a severe blow to the head or even a violent jolt. Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Traffic collisions
- Sports injuries
- Violent altercations
- Gunshot wounds
The severity of a victim’s injury greatly depends on the force of the impact, if bleeding occurred, and if the damage is irreparable.
Common Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
No two brain injuries are alike, which means symptoms will vary from person to person. However, some symptoms are commonly experienced by most victims suffering from traumatic brain injuries.
Here are some of the most common traumatic brain injury symptoms:
- Persistent headaches or migraines
- Difficulty with speech
- Abnormal sleep schedule
- Nausea or vomiting
- Issues with memory and concentration
- Depression and anxiety
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Severe mood swings
That said, not all traumatic brain injuries will present symptoms immediately. In some cases, symptoms might not present themselves until days after an incident. To limit the damage of a traumatic brain injury, it is crucial to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Doing so will start a paper trail to help support your catastrophic injury claim, making it easier for you to obtain fair compensation for your injuries. Even if you believe your injury is mild, you cannot know for certain until a medical professional examines you.
