Beaumont Personal Injury

Traumatic brain injury is a serious medical condition that should not be taken lightly. If you have been in an accident of any kind where there was injury to the head, or a violent shaking, you should be aware of the signs of traumatic brain injury listed below. Prompt medical attention can help insure a speedy recovery and prevent complications. If you have any of the symptoms listed below seek medical attention right away. Accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. If your injuries were sustained due to no fault of your own speak with an experienced personal injury attorney serving Beaumont right away. You may be entitled to damages for your injuries and lost wages as well as other losses you may have incurred.

Traumatic Brain Injury occurs when the brain rapidly accelerates or decelerates, such as in an automobile crash. The resulting force causes the brain to strike the hard skull with enough force to bruise the brain and sometimes create small tears in brain tissue. Swelling, which is a normal part of the healing process, poses a major problem to brain injuries. The brain is tightly encased in the skull leaving little room for the swelling. The pressure from the swelling can damage the structures in the brain responsible for breathing control and heart rate.

If you have been in a Beaumont automobile accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall, or have had a sports injury you should be aware of the signs of Traumatic Brain Injury:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Unusually and easily fatigued
  • Easily angered or irritated
  • Become depressed easily
  • Frequent night waking
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Easily distracted
  • Difficulty completing tasks

If you have been in an accident and are experiencing any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

Another type of brain injury called anoxic brain injury occurs when the oxygen supply to the brain has been cut off for too long causing damage. These types of brain injury are more commonly seen in diving and swimming accidents, surgical complications, and any accident that causes the supply of oxygen to be cut off from the brain for an extended period of time.
