Your brain injury could cause trouble for years to come

You were nearly home when the crash happened. You went to make a turn onto your street, and the driver behind you, probably in a rush, attempted to overtake you on the driver's side. Since you were turning left, they T-boned you as you turned. Their sudden acceleration meant that you were struck on your driver's side door and suffered the brunt of the force in the collision.

After the accident, you went through surgery due to the injuries to your face and head. You have a traumatic brain injury and have a range of symptoms that you can only hope resolve in the future.

What is a traumatic brain injury?

A traumatic brain injury occurs when there is a sudden trauma to the brain. In a crash, it might be caused by a person hitting their head on the windshield, the window next to them or the steering column. When the head violently strikes an object, there is a risk of penetration by glass or other items. There is also a risk that the brain will swell and press against the skull, causing damages throughout the regions of the brain.

What are the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury?

The symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • A loss of consciousness
  • Memory problems
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Mood changes
  • Lethargy
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • Confusion
  • Headache
  • Trouble with attention or concentration
  • Seizures

Overall, there are many symptoms that people can suffer. The type that you face will depend on the part or parts of the brain that were involved in the injury.

What should you expect from treatment?

The time immediately following the brain injury is extremely important. During that time, doctors will work quickly to reduce swelling and to limit the impact of the injury. Little can be done to reverse injuries to the brain once they happen, so the goal will be to stabilize you and to prevent the swelling from causing further injury. It's essential that proper blood flow and oxygen reach the brain. It's also imperative that your blood pressure is monitored and kept stable.

Following a brain injury, it will take time to see how it will affect you in the future. It's important to continue seeking medical care and to follow through on treatment programs. Your attorney will help you seek compensation, so that you can focus on your recovery.
