What Causes TBI?
Any accident which causes direct or indirect impact to the brain can cause a TBI. For example, whiplash experienced in a car accident could force the brain to strike the inside of the skull. This could result in a TBI even if there is no injury to the outside of the head or skull. Studies have shown that the percussive impact of being near an explosion can cause TBI, even when there is no outward sign of physical injuries. This has proven true in countless military personnel who show symptoms of TBI upon return from combat locations.
Some common traumatic brain injury causes are:
This is not an exhaustive list by any means. However, we listed some of the causes we see most often. If the cause of your injury is missing from this list, call us and we can then evaluate your claim.
Effects of TBI Can Be Life-long
The accident that causes a TBI may not seem serious at all on the surface, but our brains are very sensitive to any impact. Brain injury symptoms may include any combination of the following:
- Personality changes
- Difficulty paying attention or communicating
- Reoccurring tiredness with no obvious cause
- Memory problems
- Loss of sensation and/or muscle coordination
If you were involved in an accident and are now experiencing any of these problems, call Targan Pender & Strickland, P.C. today. Brain injuries can require a lifetime of physical and/or occupational therapy to get back to the life you led before your injury.
