A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow to the head that has disrupted the brain. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can range from concussion to coma or even death. A traumatic brain injury or a closed head injury might not be physically apparent and it might not immediately manifest itself. The insidious affects of a brain injury may not affect the victim of an accident until days, weeks, or months later.
The Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
There are numerous symptoms of serious and traumatic brain injury. They can include:
- Loss of coordination
- Nausea and vomiting
- Blurry vision
- Abnormal speech
- Cognitive function
- Memory loss
The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are serious personal injury accidents such as car accidents, truck accidents, and highway accidents. However, serious brain injuries can also result from medical malpractice, slip-and-fall injuries, birth injury, and construction accidents; including falls from scaffolding and electrocution.
