What are Common Types of Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries are considered “catastrophic injuries” because they can prevent a victim from holding gainful employment and maintaining their prior standard of living. While there are many injuries that can result in damage to the brain, some common types of brain injuries include:

  • Concussion
  • Brain Contusion
  • Hematoma
  • Penetrating Injuries
  • Second Impact Syndrome

Unfortunately, it can be challenging for medical professionals to identify and treat brain injuries unless a victim exhibits physical side effects and symptoms.

Steps to Take After a Brain Injury

It's extremely important that you seek immediate medical attention after sustaining a head injury. Some symptoms can take weeks to appear, so it’s important to take note of any physical or behavioral changes you’re experiencing. After meeting with your doctor, you can request a copy of your medical record. This essential piece of evidence proves to the court and any rival insurance company representatives that you took the proper steps to seek medical attention for your injuries.

If your case is successful, you may recover the following damages:

  • Present and future medical expenses
  • Long-term professional care-giving fees
  • Transportation fees
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning potential

What Are the Signs of Brain Damage?

Brain injurie are one of the most difficult injuries to suffer through since it impacts your physical, mental and emotional health. Signs of a brain injury are not limited but include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Tiredness or dizziness
  • Blurred vision or problems with speech
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Problems with memory
  • Mood changes

Can You Fully Recover from a Traumatic Brain Injury?

The likelihood of recovering completely from a brain injury depends largely on the severity of your injury. As you would expect, the prognosis for recovering from a mild injury is usually better and shorter than that of a more severe injury.

In fact, those who suffer a mild head injury typically recover within a few months, although there are many variables that can affect this timeline. Recovering from a more serious injury can take longer and usually requires some form of medical intervention as part of the recovery process such as speech therapy or physical therapy.
