Representing Brain Injury Victims in Sandy Springs and Atlanta
Each year, nearly 100,000 people in the U.S. suffer serious brain injuries that require medical treatment and affect their ability to perform everyday activities. Serious brain injuries can result from:
Any kind of trauma to the head or neck region can cause the brain to bruise, bleed, tear, or swell and may result in paralysis, loss of consciousness, and even death.
Types of Brain Injuries
Open Head Injuries. An open head injury means the skull has been fractured. This almost always involves brain trauma. Closed Head Injuries. A closed head injury can be more serious than an open injury due to the possibility of brain swelling and the formation of blood clots inside the skull.
According the National Institutes of Health, traumatic brain injury occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of TBI vary and are classified as mild, moderate or severe depending on the extent of the brain’s damage.
Brain Injury Symptoms
If you or a loved one has suffered any kind of blow to the head, seek medical attention immediately if you notice any of the following:
- Lack of memory or confusion about the accident
- Unusual tiredness or sluggishness
- Nausea and dizziness
- Severe headache
- Weakness or numbness on one side of the body
Some brain injuries do not show symptoms immediately. If there’s any concern about possible brain or skull damage, do not hesitate to seek medical help. Often, by the time symptoms appear, you have already suffered permanent damage that can dramatically alter the quality of your life. In order to ensure that you receive the necessary treatment before this occurs, you should have your injury evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible.
