Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Serious brain injuries can occur in a wide variety of situations, but they are often the result of car wrecks, motorcycle collisions, or pedestrian accidents. Slip and fall accidents regularly involve brain trauma, and a brain injury can also occur while a person is on the job, especially when workplace accidents occur at construction sites.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when someone suffers a bump or blow to the head that causes a disruption to the brain's normal functions. TBIs can range from relatively mild injuries that affect a person temporarily to severe cases that cause long-term or permanent impairment or wrongful death.

The symptoms of a TBI may not make themselves known immediately after an incident occurs, and sometimes they do not appear until days or weeks later. Some short term symptoms include headaches, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, memory loss, and confusion. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should receive immediate medical treatment.

Unfortunately, even with treatment, a TBI can have long term or permanent effects. These may include:

  • Physical symptoms - Victims may experience painful and persistent headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty with balance and coordination, seizures, or sensitivity to bright lights or loud noises. These issues can not only cause a great deal of discomfort, but they can affect a person's ability to perform their job or complete daily tasks.
  • Memory and cognition - A victim may have trouble concentrating, thinking clearly, or remembering information, all of which can impair their ability to work or take care of family responsibilities.
  • Emotional changes - Victims may become irritable, or they may experience depression or anxiety. This can affect their personal relationships, and ongoing therapy may be required to treat these issues.
  • Sleep issues - A victim may have trouble sleeping, or they may sleep more than usual and have trouble waking up. Inability to obtain proper rest can affect their ability to perform work-related tasks.
