Millions of people suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in the United States each year. Car accidents, sports incidents, slip and falls, and construction site accidents are common causes of TBIs. These injuries are often considered catastrophic, because they may render a person incapable of maintaining gainful employment.
There are a variety of short-term and long-term symptoms of a traumatic brain injury, including:
- Physical symptoms. Physical symptoms may occur right away, or they might not appear for some time after the accident. Victims may suffer severe headaches, bruising, bleeding from lacerations, dizziness, and nausea. These physical symptoms are often short-term, and will go away with proper medical treatment.
- Cognitive symptoms. Cognitive symptoms affect a person’s ability to think, reason, and complete daily tasks. Victims may suffer confusion, inability to speak or understand language, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, and impaired gross and fine motor functions.
- Behavioral symptoms. Studies have shown that some people may become moody, depressed, anxious, irritable, or angry after suffering a traumatic brain injury. Furthermore, TBIs may change a victim’s personality.
