Traumatic Brain Injury Signs
Head and traumatic brain injuries, which are often difficult to recognize and diagnose following an accident, need to be evaluated quickly by a knowledgeable professional and may require surgery due to ruptured blood vessels or bruising on the brain. In addition, these traumatic injuries can lead to long-term medical expenses due to related physical disabilities, including:
- Chronic Headaches
- Loss of Memory
- Thinking and Reasoning Limitations
- Vision Impairment
- Hearing Impairment
- Personality changes, including aggression and acting inappropriately
More severe injuries to the head and brain can even cause someone to lapse into a coma or vegetative state. According recent studies, approximately 30 percent of all injury-related deaths in the United States are the direct result of brain injuries.
