What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury, medically referred to as a craniocerebral trauma, occurs due to a violent blow to the head, or a neck injury, like whiplash, in which the head is jerked violently back and forth. TBIs can happen if someone has had multiple concussions, as well, since repeated impacts to the head can worsen the damage of a concussion.
A mild TBI or concussion can temporarily affect the brain cells, thought patterns, and memory. More severe TBIs lead to brain bleeding, torn brain tissue, or even death. People with serious concussions or TBI may have permanent or long-term brain damage.
TBIs can also be fatal. If your loved one experienced a fatal TBI, the traumatic brain injury attorneys at Commonwealth Law Group could file a wrongful death suit on your behalf.
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury are wide-ranging and aren’t just physical. People with a concussion or TBI may also experience emotional and psychological symptoms. Some effects appear immediately, while others may take days or weeks to emerge. These can include:
- Headaches, either persistent or recurring
- Vomiting and nausea, or changes in appetite
- Drowsiness and fatigue
- Difficult speaking or pronouncing words
- Loss of balance and dizziness
- Sensory issues: fuzzy vision, ringing ears, changes in smell
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Brief loss of consciousness or feeling dazed and confused
- Depression, anxiety, or mood swings
- Difficulty sleeping or disrupted sleep patterns
Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries can lead to permanent personality changes and have significant physical impacts, such as seizures or convulsions, dilated pupils, clear fluid draining from the eyes or nose, or weakness and numbness in the extremities.
Combative behavior, agitation, and other unusual behavior after a head injury may also indicate a TBI.
Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
The Commonwealth Law Group’s team of traumatic brain injury lawyers is experienced in helping people like you who have experienced TBIs from many different causes, and we understand that each circumstance is different. The more common situations where someone could experience a traumatic brain injury include:
- Motorcycle or car collisions
- Bicycle or pedestrian accidents
- Commercial trucking accidents
- Sports injuries, especially collision sports like hockey, rugby, or football
- Slip and fall accidents
- Violent crimes or assault
- Workplace accidents or construction site injuries
These aren’t the only circumstances in which a TBI can happen. Anytime there’s a concussion risk, there's also the risk that a person will develop a TBI. In fact, multiple concussions can lead to a catastrophic, life-changing, or even fatal TBI.
