Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers Can Help You More than You Might Expect

Imagine this: you get into a car accident that is not your fault, causing damage to your vehicle and injury to your body. You have to go through the long and complicated process of making an insurance claim, going to the hospital for treatment, and finding a body shop to repair your car. Your results come back from the doctor a few weeks later, and it turns out that you also suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Now what? Unfortunately, an average of 2.8 million people suffer a TBI each year in the United States, which is a type of personal injury, of which about 50,000 usually result in a fatality. Those are some scary figures! There are about 280,000 hospitalizations each year for TBI-related injuries, and as we all know hospital bills can be very expensive.

What are the Leading Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries and concussions are injuries to the brain that are the result of a significant jolt or blow to the head, neck, or even the body. These injuries are caused from horrific events, such as gunshot wounds or head trauma from abuse, as well as accidental events such as car accidents, workplace injuries, and sports-related injuries.  According to the CDC, falling is another leading cause. Essentially, anything that would result in serious damage being done to someone’s head.

How Can You Detect a TBI?

Truthfully, brain injuries can be difficult to detect. Someone will typically experience confusion, fatigue, or an overall foggy feeling. People can also experience sudden, unusual mood swings, as well as headaches, dizziness, memory loss, vomiting, or seizures. Due to other medical conditions that have similar or overlapping symptoms, TBIs are often be missed in older adults. This is why it is so important to seek medical attention after any blow to the head, even if you think you feel okay.
