Recognizing the Signs of Brain Injury
Brain injuries often result from things like motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents, and workplace accidents. In the aftermath of an accident, it can be hard to recognize the signs of brain injury. Anytime someone loses consciousness, it is likely that some form of brain injury occurred, such as a concussion, but not always. That is why it is important to seek medical attention immediately - it is better to err on the side of caution than allow a serious injury to go untreated. A good rule of thumb after any accident is that if something just doesn't seem right, it is worth being checked out by a doctor.
Signs of brain injury that are more difficult to recognize include:
- Loss of memory
- Sluggishness or fatigue
- Severe headaches
- Trouble speaking
- Loss of motor function
The Long-Term Impact of Brain Injuries
Head and brain injuries can result in the loss of bodily function, a loss of earning capacity, and substantial changes to personality. Because of this, brain injury victims can require long-term in-home care and extensive rehabilitation. The costs of this care can quickly add up, leaving a family to deal not only with the deep emotional burden that comes with an injured loved one, but also a financial crisis.
