What are Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Brain damage results from injuries that cause the destruction or deterioration of brain cells.  There are two different types, traumatic brain injuries and acquired brain injuries.  Traumatic brain injuries result from an external force that causes the brain to move inside or damage the skull.  Acquired brain injuries occur at a cellular level and are most often associated with pressure on the brain, such as a tumor or stroke.

Causes of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Car accidents
  • Blows to the head
  • Sports injuries
  • Falls and accidents
  • Physical violence

Data shows that each year, approximately 2.6 million people in the U.S. suffer some type of brain injury, and roughly 52,000 people die as a result.  Furthermore, over five million people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury will require assistance with daily activities.

What are Brain Injury Symptoms?

Symptoms of brain injuries vary depending on the type and severity of the injury sustained.  Mild injuries typically result in temporary side effects that include headaches, confusion, memory problems and nausea.  Symptoms of moderate injuries last longer and can be more pronounced.  Symptoms of severe brain injuries can result in cognitive, behavioral and physical disabilities.

Traumatic brain injury symptoms fall into four main categories:  cognitive, perceptual, physical, and behavioral/emotional.

Cognitive symptoms include:

  • Difficulty processing information
  • Difficulty expressing thoughts
  • Difficulty understanding others
  • Shortened attention span
  • Inability to understand abstract concepts
  • Impaired decision-making ability
  • Memory loss

Perceptual symptoms:

  • Change in vision, hearing or sense of touch
  • Spatial disorientation
  • Inability to sense time
  • Disorders of smell and taste
  • Balance issues
  • Heightened sensitivity to pain

Some physical symptoms include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Extreme mental fatigue
  • Extreme physical fatigue
  • Seizures
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sleep disorders
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of consciousness

Behavioral and emotional symptoms:

  • Irritability and impatience
  • Reduced tolerance for stress
  • Sluggishness
  • Flattened or heightened emotions and reactions
  • Denial of disability
  • Increased aggressiveness

It is important to know the signs and symptoms of brain injuries to diagnose and treat a head injury as quickly as possible.  Any type of brain injury requires immediate medical attention to stabilize the patient and prevent further injury.

    Marion not only is an accomplished lawyer who gets great results, but also she brings genuine compassion and zealous advocacy to each person she represents. Our firms have worked together on important cases and I look forward to future opportunities to work together. Rena Leizerman

    Bob Munley helped me at the worst time of my life. After my accident, I thought I would never recover. But Bob Munley was with me every step of the way. Not only did he get me what I needed, but he made sure I understood what was happening with my case. Trucking Accident Client

    First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement ! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client
