Treatment for Brain Injuries

Did you know that annually, approximately 2.6 million Americans suffer some form of brain injury? Traumas, strokes, tumors, or other illnesses are a significant cause these injuries. Further, another 52,000 Americans die from traumatic brain injury. Worse still, over 5 million Americans who suffer traumatic brain injury can’t live normally without help.

If your brain injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you should speak to an attorney as soon as you can. In many cases, victims are entitled to compensation under California law.

What Causes Brain Injury?

Violent blows or jolts to the head can injure the brain. Also, objects can penetrate the skull and injure the brain. If the injury is mild, it will only affect your brain cells temporarily. More severe injuries can tear tissues, cause bruising, and leave victims with irreversible damage. Brain injuries can occur in accidents like:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents

Symptoms of Brain Injury

Patients experience different emotional, bodily, behavioral, and mental symptoms, depending on their injury’s severity. Common symptoms of brain injuries include:

  • Headaches.
  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Fatigue.
  • Blurred vision.
  • Confusion.
  • Dizziness.
  • Impaired speech.
  • Memory lapses.
  • Disturbed sleep patterns.
  • Concentration difficulties.
  • Irritability.

When to See a Doctor

It’s never too early to seek medical attention after suffering a concussion. All concussion levels (mild, moderate, and severe) require medical attention for prompt and accurate diagnosis. This way, it becomes easy to treat it early before things spiral out of control. It allows doctors to stabilize your condition, ensure blood and oxygen flow to the brain correctly, and control your blood pressure.
