At Osborne & Francis Law Firm PLLC, our injury attorneys understand the emotional and physical pain associated with brain injuries and work hard to ease some of the burdens and pressures that go along with pursuing legal action. Our primary goal is to investigate and litigate your case to the fullest and help you achieve a positive resolution that allows you to move on in with your life in a better position.
Common causes and symptoms of traumatic brain injuries
Traumatic brain injuries result from bumps or blows to the head that may or may not penetrate the skin and or skull. Mild brain injuries that involve brief changes in mental state or consciousness are called concussions. The most common causes of traumatic brain injuries are:
• Unintentional blunt trauma
• Motor vehicle accidents
One of the fastest growing traumatic brain injury trends is the growing prevalence of sports and recreation related brain trauma. Among adolescents aged 19 or younger, the rate of traumatic brain injuries and concussions increased 57% from 2001 to 2009.
Depending of the severity of the brain injury, victims experience a wide range of symptoms that can last for very short periods of time or go on for days, months and even years. Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include:
• Problems concentrating, thinking, processing and remembering information
• Blurry vision
• Sensitivity to light and noise
• Fatigue and lethargy
• Emotional fluctuations causing irritability, sadness and anxiety
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may present immediately after the accident, days or months later. It is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident and when symptoms begin occurring to minimize long-term complications.
