What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury can be caused by a car accident or any other accident that results in a head injury. Brain injuries are extremely serious and can be life threatening. Sometimes brain injuries can go undiagnosed at first, and the damage from head trauma is often irreversible.
What are the Symptoms of a Brain Injury?
Even a mild brain injury can have devastating effects on a person’s life. A mild injury can cause persistent headaches, confusion, dizziness, memory loss, and changes in behavior. No two brain injuries are alike, and they affect a person’s life and personality in a variety of ways. A severe brain injury can cause a person to be permanently disabled, with the symptoms ranging from severe cognitive impairment to a long-term comatose state.
