A traumatic brain injury is a type of closed-head injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head severe enough to disrupt the function of the brain. Falls and motor vehicle accidents are the leading causes of TBIs. Traumatic brain injury can also be caused by violent, back and forth movement of the head and neck.
Symptoms include dizziness, unexplained headaches, loss of memory and ability to concentrate, loss of cognitive function, and coma. TBI can cause changes in thinking, sensation, language, and emotions. People with TBIs are at higher risk for other brain diseases, such as epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's. Symptoms do not always appear at the time of the injury or accident. Delayed symptoms may appear weeks or months after the original injury. In some cases, function can be restored. In other cases, the brain damage is permanent.
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury because of someone else's negligence, please contact a brain injury attorney at the Law Offices of David G. Smith today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.
