Traumatic Brain Injuries Are Not Just From Sports Injuries

May 17 2016 | Personal Injury Lawyer Blog
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) have recently been the subject of a major Hollywood movie, numerous news profiles, Congressional Hearings and seemingly endless debates on television. However, the scope of the national discussion has largely centered on the link between TBI and football.

    The reality is that the vast majorities of TBI-causing events happen off the field: they happen on our roadways, on the job, in places of business and in our homes. They can happen when you least expect, and often have a devastating effect on the lives of their victims.

    Brain injuries can cause a wide range of symptoms, any number of which can lead to loss of employment, changes in personality and serious bouts of depression.

    Symptoms can include:

    •    Dizziness and poor balance
    •    Impaired memory
    •    Nausea and vomiting
    •    Lost sense of smell or taste
    •    Ringing in the ears
    •    Difficulty remembering, concentrating or making decisions.
    •    Slowed thinking, speaking, movement and reading.
    •    Getting lost or easily confused, even in familiar places
    •    Feeling tired all of the time
    •    Lower energy or motivation
    •    Mood swings that may seem irrational
    •    Drastic changes in sleep patterns
    •    Increased sensitivity to lights, sounds
    •    Blurred vision

    In some cases, the symptoms can be even worse, but in every case getting the best treatment and recovery plan is the key to getting your life back on track.

    If you’ve been injured in an accident and believe you may have a Traumatic Brain Injury, call an experienced personal injury attorney immediately.
